China denies shooting at Vietnamese boat

BEIJING - China's maritime law enforcement agency declared on Sunday that recent media reports of Chinese patrol ships shooting at a Vietnamese fishing boat were untrue.

According to a statement of the China Marine Surveillance (CMS) under the State Oceanic Administration, the CMS has recently carried out a routine patrol in the waters around the Xisha Islands in the South China Sea, over which China claims indisputable sovereignty.

However, the CMS ships did not have any clash with any Vietnamese boats, not to mention a so-called shooting incident, the statement said.

A report on the Chinese version website of Kyodo News on Saturday quoted an Vietnamese official as saying that a Vietnamese fishing boat was shot and damaged by some CMS ships around the Xisha Islands.

China expels Japanese survey boats

SHANGHAI - Chinese maritime law enforcers recently identified and expelled two Japanese boats that were caught carrying out illegal surveillance activities in China's territorial waters, maritime authorities said Tuesday.

Routine patrols by China Marine Surveillance officers discovered two Japan Coast Guard survey boats in the East China Sea late Sunday. The survey boats left the waters after receiving a warning from the Chinese patrols, according to the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) and China Marine Surveillance.

China Marine Surveillance is a paramilitary maritime law enforcement agency responsible for administering the country's coastal and territorial waters.
