Viet Nam, China Finish Joint Sea Patrol

Coast guards of Viet Nam and China completed their joint patrol in the waters adjacent to the demarcation line in the Gulf of Tonkin from April 19 to 21.

This was the first such move between the two sides in 2022 and the fourth conducted since a fisheries cooperation agreement in the Gulf of Tonkin waters between Viet Nam and China expired on June 30, 2020.

The forces conducted telephone exchanges and supervised fishing vessels operating in the area during their work.

They also explained fishing and COVID-19 control regulations, along with practicing joint search and rescue at sea.

According to Colonel Tran Van Thọ, Commander of Viet Nam Coast Guard Region 1, who led the Vietnamese side, the joint patrol was successful, contributing to promoting the relationship between the two Parties, States and peoples of Viet Nam and China, and between the two Coast Guard forces.
