After 13 days and nights of continuous sailing, the 13th naval escort taskforce under the Navy of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) successfully arrived in the eastern waters of the Gulf of Aden at 04:00 on November 21, 2012, local time.


The pirate activity is expected to be more rampant due to the relatively sound sea conditions in the Gulf of Aden and the waters off the Somali coast in the next six months, according to the command post of the escort taskforce. Moreover, the pirates have mastered a series of “tactics” and extended their active period from daylight into dawn and dusk, even into the night.


The 13th Chinese naval escort taskforce, composed of the “Huangshan” guided missile frigate, the “Hengyang” guided missile frigate and the “Qinghai Lake” comprehensive supply ship, set out from a military port in Zhanjiang of south China’s Guangdong province on November 9, 2012.
