11 Taiwan fishermen rescued near Fiji
Adjust font size:

All the 11 fishermen trapped on a wrecked Taiwan fishing boat have been rescued and have safely arrived in the Fiji capital Suva, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu in Beijing Tuesday.

"They are all in good health," said Jiang.

The Taiwan boat hit a rock about 250 sea miles from Fiji Islands on Saturday. The fishermen asked for rescue from China Maritime Search and Rescue Center through rescue institution in Taiwan, Jiang said.

China launched an emergency response immediately after receiving the request, and ordered the Chinese embassies in Fiji and New Zealand to contact the Fiji government, assist in rescue work, and provide for medical care and other follow-ups, said Jiang.
