VLADIVOSTOK, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Russia and Japan held joint anti-pirate drills off the coast of Russian Far Eastern city Vladivostok on Wednesday.
Two Japanese ships -- destroyer Ariake and frigate Oyodo -- joined Russian destroyer Admiral Panteleyev and other vessels for the one-day game.
The warships would conduct communications and maneuvering exercises as well as search-and-rescue exercises, during which servicemen are expected to put out a fire on a tugboat and rescue people falling into water.
