China seeks South Korean security guarantees after warning shots fired at ship

BEIJING China mentioned on Wednesday it had asked South Korea to make certain the safety of Chinese ships soon after South Korea’s navy fired warning shots at a Chinese vessel which crossed into waters disputed by North and South Korea.

The South Korean navy told Yonhap news agency it had fired 10 warning shots at a Chinese boat which it stated crossed the Northern Limit Line – a disputed inter-Korean maritime border on the west coast.

The ship was initially believed to be North Korean, but was later identified as Chinese, according to Yonhap.

“We are concerned about the relevant situation,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing.

The Chinese embassy in South Korea has asked for a clarification of what happened, she mentioned, adding that it had not heard of any harm or injuries.

“We will continue to pay close interest to how the scenario develops and preserve in communication with South Korea, asking they make certain the safety of Chinese personnel and ships,” Hua stated, without giving other specifics.

The Northern Limit Ling is a disputed border exactly where a number of artillery and naval clashes have occurred in recent years.

Final year, a Chinese fisherman was killed in a South Korean coastguard operation to apprehend his vessel which was operating illegally off South Korea’s west coast.

South Korea’s coastguard regularly chases Chinese fishing boats out of its western seas and violence does occasionally take place.

A South Korean coastguard officer was stabbed to death by a Chinese fisherman in 2011 and the following year a Chinese fisherman died from injuries in a confrontation with the coastguard. That led to a Chinese government complaint.

Turkey angered by rocket-brandishing on Russian naval ship passing Istanbul

ISTANBUL Turkey accused Russia of a “provocation” on Sunday soon after a serviceman on the deck of a Russian naval ship allegedly held a rocket launcher on his shoulder although the vessel passed via Istanbul.

Relations have deteriorated sharply because Turkey last week became the very first NATO member in more than half a century to down a Russian plane, which it stated had violated its airspace even though flying sorties over Syria. The pilot was killed.

The NTV news channel broadcast photographs that it mentioned showed a serviceman brandishing a rocket launcher on the deck of the landing ship Caesar Kunikov as it passed on Saturday by way of the Bosphorus Strait, which bisects the city of Istanbul. It stated the ship was believed to be en route to Syria.

“For a Russian soldier to display a rocket launcher or anything equivalent although passing on a Russian warship is a provocation,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters, according to the Hurriyet news website. “If we perceive a threatening circumstance, we will give the necessary response.”

The Bosphorus gives the only passage to the world’s oceans for the Russian Black Sea fleet. A Globe War One-era treaty obliges Turkey to permit all ships to pass during peacetime.

Turkey had regarded Russia a strategic companion as its principal energy supplier, regardless of deep differences more than Syria. But given that Turkey shot the plane down, Moscow has introduced financial sanctions including a ban on Turkish foods and other products worth as considerably as $ 1 billion.NTV stated 3 NATO frigates with Canadian, Spanish and Portuguese flags had been moored in Istanbul as the Caesar Kunikov passed through.
