China Expresses Dissatisfaction over Shooting on Fishing Vessel

The Chinese Embassy in Jakarta on Wednesday expressed astonishment and dissatisfaction over an Indonesian navy ship's shooting on a Chinese fishing boat allegedly poaching on Monday in the Arafura Sea off the Papua Island.


The shooting killed one and wounded two crew members.


The embassy had made serious representations to the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Indonesian Navy and expressed regret about the lateness of being informed over the accident, embassy sources said.


Meanwhile, the embassy confirmed that the Chinese boat was illegally fishing in Indonesian waters as all its documents were overdue.


The incident happened at 10:50 AM local time and the navy fired 13 shots at the Chinese boat, which is now detained in Indonesia.


Earlier on Wednesday, counselor of the Chinese embassy Yu Hongyao said China was dissatisfied with what the Indonesian Navy had done to the Chinese ship named Fuyuan 132.


The Arafuru Sea is about 3,800 kilometers east of the capital city of Jakarta.
