PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM (Sept. 6, 2013) Chinese citizens wave the U.S. and China flag as the People's Liberation Army-Navy ship Qingdao (DDG 113) arrives in Hawaii for a scheduled port visit. Over the weekend, Chinese and U.S. leaders will conduct dialogues to build confidence and mutual understanding between the two nations. The port visit is part of the U.S. Navy’s ongoing effort to maximize opportunities for developing relationships with foreign navies to build trust, encourage multilateral cooperation, enhance transparency, and avoid miscalculation in the Pacific.
