Xinhua Beijing December 25 December 26 last year, Xinhua, China’s first batch of the Gulf of Aden to escort naval fleet set sail. This is nearly five centuries the first time the Chinese navy sailed out of territorial waters to protect national interests. Chinese naval fleet is now sent four batches of the Gulf of Aden to escort the convoy operation of the Chinese navy mean? What we gain from the experience and lessons learned? Cho Yoon-known military expert, Major General 25 guest Xinhua, and users interact, review the Chinese navy to escort the first anniversary of the Gulf of Aden.
escort action when it comes to change, China Yin Cho said in October convened a joint convoy of the international symposium (held in Department of Defense), we all take joint action initiative, a way to partition the joint convoy escort ways to reduce the cost of escort, this initiative is the implementation process, as long as there is a national response, we can increase the efficiency of many, if most countries are responding, and that efficiency gains are more. Some countries of surface ships, and some countries of anti-submarine patrol aircraft, a supply ship in some countries, some countries no people, no boats, money. In this case, the entire Gulf of Aden and the whole area coverage on the very big.
Yin Cho said, after we put forward the initiative, including the United States, European Union, Japan, countries and organizations to participate in convoy, they were very positive reflection of all that China embodies the image of a responsible power. As a permanent member, step by step we are improving our ability to fulfill its international obligations, while also improving our credibility, because in our area is one hundred percent of the escort of security, so everyone’s sense of responsibility to our escort are recognized, including the tactical application of our escort is very accepted. If this has been driven, then there will be some changes in the joint convoy.
feelings when it comes to the escort, the Yin Cho said although I did not visit the site, but I feel very great responsibility. Because it is central in December last year under the commitment to send ships to escort to the other side, the country has a variety of arguments, there is anxiety and worry about, the Central made a commitment from the Navy after a year’s time we look, We completed the central allocation to us a very important political mission, military mission, because it is groundbreaking, said political task it is to direct and coordinate diplomatic missions together, we must, through Ministry of Foreign Affairs coordinated with the International Maritime Organization .
Yin Cho said, our equipment, logistical support, technical support have been fully tested, our crew has also been fully tested, the responsibility is very important, tasks to perform in times of peace a major incident and we can hardly explain to relatives of crew members, so in addition to the escort mission should also consider our own safety.
Finally, the Yin Cho concluded, I am very proud, because this year we successfully completed the Navy is the CPC Central Committee, Central Military Commission mandate entrusted to us, did not live up to people across the country hope to our Navy because we are building these ships we get to pay the tax, each taxpayer in our Navy are very concerned, because he’s a hard work and contributions in here, everyone has a contribution, we want to be worthy of the national people’s contribution, we spend so much money so advanced warships sent to the place to go, to escort the effects? We want to make people across the country an explanation. From this year’s practice, should be said that we do not live up to the expectations of people across the country, so I am very proud. Of course, I have a vision that the future actions like this take up our confidence more adequate, and in other waters have a similar situation, we have the ability to complete the CPC Central Committee and Chinese navy, the CMC to the diversity of our various military tasks, we have the ability.
