This looks to me the passing of the escort task force duties from the 32nd to the 33rd. The lead ship for the 32nd should be the 153 Xi'an and the lead ship for the 33rd should be 117 Xi'ning.

Could you elaborate more on this? What do you passing of the escort duties?

Where 32nd on a mission near the Middle East or somewhere and now they are being relieved by the 33rd?

And the ships; are the leading ones Type-052(D or C), followed by the two Type-054A, followed by a replenish ship?

The two groups would sail side by side for a while, do a photoex and then start to separate like this. Its a ceremony for the two escort groups as one heads home and the other takes over the escort duties. The 32nd has finished its escort duties and will head home as the 33rd takes over.

The lead ship for the 32nd is the 052C 153 Xian, and for the 33rd, the 052D 117 Xining. Each is followed by a 054A and a replenishment ship.

China has sovereign rights and jurisdiction over the Nansha Islands and adjacent waters near Vanguard Bank, so Vietnam's repeated claims that China's research in the area has infringed on its sovereignty are invalid, said a FM spokesperson on Wednesday.

That is some very large bulk carriers over there, referred to as bulkers in short. These might even be 400k DWT Chinamax or Valemax class.
