Chinese warships visit Copenhagen

Chinese warships visit Copenhagen

20-09-2015 08:00:00


Three ships of the Chinese navy have caused great attention in Copenhagen over the weekend, where they have visited the North Harbour. There was an open day on board the Chinese ships for employees of the Danish armed forces and their families on Saturday.

The visit to Copenhagen stems from the Danish-Chinese naval cooperation in the removal of chemical weapons from Syria, as well as anti-piracy operations off the Horn of Africa.

The visit to Denmark is part of a larger wave of visits, when Chinese naval vessels after having been deployed by the Horn of Africa, will be visiting Finland, Sweden, USA and Australia before returning to China.

The Swedish photographer Per Körnefeldt was at sea when the Chinese warships arrived in Copenhagen, where they were received by the Danish frigate Iver Huitfeldt.
