China Hopes Argentina Will Resolve Maritime Crisis as per Law

BEIJING – China said on Wednesday it hopes Argentina will address the incident of the Chinese fishing boat that was sunk earlier this month by the Argentine coast guard, as per law.

The statement comes ahead of a meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Argentine counterpart Mauricio Macri in Washington on Friday.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei underlined Wednesday China hopes Argentina will manage the maritime crisis according to the law and ensure the rights, interests and safety of the Chinese fishermen.

However, Hong refused to divulge if the issue will be brought up during Friday’s meeting, on the sidelines of the 4th Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.

Around the beginning of this month, an Argentine coast guard shot and sank the Chinese trawler Lu Yuan Yu 10, which according to Buenos Aires was fishing illegally in the waters of the Latin American country.

After a chase of several hours, the Chinese ship allegedly tried to steer into the Argentine vessel, forcing the latter to open fire, which sank the Chinese boat.

The 32 crew members on board, however, were rescued unharmed.

This will be the first meeting between the two presidents since Macri came to power following presidential elections last September.
