A Turkish naval ship made history in its maiden visit to Port Klang when it docked at South Point.
The visit to Malaysia was historic as it was the first time that a Turkish naval ship commanded by a rear admiral visited the country, said the Turkish Embassy here.
It said the 'TCG Gemlik', with 250 personnel onboard, was helmed by Rear Admiral A. Sinan Ertugrul, commander of the Turkish Naval Maritime Task Group.
According to the embassy, the ship was on a goodwill visit before heading for Shanghai, three days later.
It said the visit was considered a milestone towards enhancing good relations between the two countries in general, and the two navies, in particular.
During the visit, Ertugrul called on Royal Malaysian Navy deputy chief Vice- Admiral Datuk Mohammed Noordin Ali.
Various programmes were held in conjunction with the trip, including a visit to the National Hydrography Centre, a lecture on counter-piracy operations by a Turkish officer, a friendly football match and a reception on board the ship attended by, among others, 30 high-ranking officers from the Malaysian navy and ambassadors of various countries.
