MANILA, Philippines - A Chinese missile frigate that protected international vessels against Somali pirates docked in the Philippines on Tuesday after completing a 128-day mission, China's embassy said.

The Ma'anshan is the flagship of China's Task Force 525, which also includes a second missile frigate and a comprehensive supply ship, the embassy said in a statement.

The five-day port call in Manila will include dialogue between Chinese navy officials and their Filipino counterparts, it said.

In April last year, the Huangshan, also a missile frigate, came to the aid of the Philippine chemical tanker MT Stolt Strength and its 23-man Filipino crew, days after it was freed by Somali pirates, by thwarting a second attack.
