The Japan Coast Guard rescued six crew members of a Chinese fishing boat that was sinking in the East China Sea after colliding with a Greek cargo ship early on Thursday, 11 August. Beijing reciprocated Tokyo’s humane gesture and thanked them for the rescue operation, despite ongoing tensions between the two countries over maritime rights on the East China Sea.
The incident took place about 65 km off Uotsuri Island near the Senkaku Islands. Japanese coast guards are still searching for eight other missing members from the fishing vessel.
