Moscow/UNI/Sputnik: Russian and Chinese warships conducted the first joint patrol in the Pacific Ocean, the Russian Ministry of Defence said on Saturday.

"The warships of the Russian Navy and the Chinese naval forces conducted the first patrol in the western Pacific Ocean from October 17-23," the ministry said in a statement.

The vessels traversed the Sea of Japan as part of the patrol and practiced joint tactical maneuvering, the statement read.
