Beijing called on Australia to intensify the search for the crew of the sunken Chinese fishing vessel

Beijing on Thursday called on Australia to send more planes, ships and rescue teams to search for the 39 crew of a Chinese fishing boat that sank on Tuesday.

Chinese state broadcaster CCTV reported that 17 Chinese, 17 Indonesians and five Filipinos were on board the ill-fated Luo Bingyuan in the Indian Ocean when it capsized at around 3:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday.

No survivors have been found yet.

Chinese Ambassador to Canberra Hsiao Qian told reporters.

An international rescue operation has been launched to search for the 39 people working on the ship. Hsiao said Australia had already sent three planes and four ships to help search the area, about 5,000 kilometers west of Perth.

Xiao said at the same time

They want Australians to send more planes, ships and people to the scene.

CCTV reported that Beijing turned two merchant ships to take part in the search.

The Chinese ambassador also asked the Australian government to coordinate rescue teams from other countries during the search.

The unfortunate ship was owned by Penglaj Csinglu Fishery. Departing Cape Town, South Africa on May 5, it was last seen by the MarineTraffic vessel tracker on May 10 southeast of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.
