Malaysia: China Vessel Spotted In Malaysian Waters Off Miri

A China Coast Guard vessel has reported trespassing into Malaysian waters off Miri last week, June 4. 

The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) received a report on the Chinese vessel near Beting Patinggi Ali, located 155 km off the Miri coast, said Captain Md Fauzi Othman, the Miri director of MMEA.

MMEA and the Royal Malaysian Navy are monitoring the situation closely, Md Fauzi added. 

Wisma Putra had previously summoned the Chinese ambassador for an explanation after China's air force planes flew over the airspace last 31 May 2021. The planes were flying 'in tactical formation' over Beting Patinggi Ali. 

A diplomatic note of protest was submitted to Beijing against the intrusion, said Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysia's Foreign Minister.
