3 marine ships leave Sanya for patrol missions in S. China Sea
The fleet consists of the Haixun 21, Haixun 31 and Haixun 166, the Hainan Maritime Safety Administration said.
The missions will strengthen the country’s maritime law enforcement capacity and test the patrol team’s rapid response abilities in the South China Sea.
It will monitor maritime traffic safety, investigate maritime accidents, detect pollution, and carry out search and rescue work.
It is China’s second patrol after two ships started a regular patrol mission in the South China Sea from Guangzhou on February 20.
