China Daily (Canada) - - ANALYSIS -

China and Viet­nam be­gan a three-day joint pa­trol on Wed­nes­day in a com­mon fish­ing zone in the Beibu Gulf. It was the sec­ond joint pa­trol by coast guards from the two coun­tries this year. The first was held in April. Each coun­try sent two pa­trol ships to com­plete a se­ries of sched­uled tasks, in­clud­ing re­search, mar­itime search and res­cue, and an ex­am­i­na­tion of fish­ing boats. An of­fi­cer from the Chi­nese Coast Guard’s South China Sea di­vi­sion said the joint pa­trols help cre­ate a sta­ble en­vi­ron­ment for fish­ing, build mu­tual trust be­tween mar­itime law en­force­ment de­part­ments and deepen friend­ship be­tween the peo­ple of the two coun­tries.
