All 14 sailors on board of a Vietnamese cargo ship, which sank near a port of Hainan, China, have been rescued and brought onshore by a Chinese fishing vessel, said the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The sailors’ health is in good condition, according to the ministry.

Cargo ship Nam Long 01-9570503 sank on June 20 near Dongfang city, Hainan of China, due to electricity problem and bad weather, while travelling en route from My Tho, Vietnam’s southern province of Tien Giang to Dongfeng port.

Relevant Vietnamese agencies are working with concerned Chinese agencies to complete procedures to help the crew return to the country at earliest time./.
