Sports events and exchanges will be held between the two sides, Liang added.

Naval forces from China will join a U.S. warship in the west Pacific in mid-June and then sail to Pearl Harbor in formation.

In 2014, the Chinese navy participated in RIMPAC multinational naval exercises for the first time.
