Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang’s Regular Press Conference on April 10, 2017
Q: The mention of Indian Navy’s participation in this particular operation is absent from both the official statement issued by the Chinese Navy and what you mentioned in your remarks. According to the Indian Navy, the helicopter cover was provided by them. Was it a joint operation?
A: I’ve made clear what I know. After being notified by the UKMTO, the Chinese naval vessel Yulin carried out relevant operations to rescue the hostages. China has always been positive with international anti-piracy cooperation. It is a very clear position of us.
