SASEBO, Nagasaki Pref. (Kyodo) Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie, in a rare step Monday by a Beijing dignitary, visited a Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyer equipped with the Aegis combat system.

Liang boarded the MSDF destroyer Chokai at the U.S. naval base here following a welcoming ceremony by the MSDF. He was accompanied by U.S. officers, and the scope of his visit was limited because much information about the ship is secret, including the air defense system developed by the United States, according to the MSDF.
