Chinese Navy will send 32 warships and 39 aircraft to take part in a joint sea parade in waters near Qingdao.

Nearly 20 ships from about 10 countries will participate in the sea parade on Tuesday, deputy commander of the PLA Navy Qiu Yanpeng said.

A Singapore Navy frigate arrived on Friday in Qingdao, Shandong province, becoming the first foreign warship to arrive ahead of a grand event to honor the 70th birthday of the People's Liberation Army Navy.

The PLA Navy will hold multinational naval activities in Qingdao and nearby waters from Monday to Thursday to celebrate its founding anniversary. They will include a joint sea parade, high-level symposiums, public tours of ships, military music performances and other cultural exchanges.

A press center opened on Wednesday in Qingdao for the upcoming multinational naval activity.
