Sri Lankan divers recover bodies from capsized Chinese vessel “Lupeng Yuanyu 028”

COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lankan divers have located and recovered seven bodies from a Chinese fishing vessel that capsized in the central Indian Ocean.The remains were discovered days after China President Xi Jinping ordered an all-out search to rescue and recover missing crew members.Several countries, including Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, the Maldives, and the Philippines, joined in rescue efforts for 39 missing crew members after the Chinese distant-water fishing vessel "Lupeng Yuanyu 028" capsized early last Tuesday, state-run CCTV reported.The vessel is owned by Penglai Jinglu Fishery Co Ltd based in Shandong province.

The company has yet to release a statement on the incident.Of the 39 people that were originally on board – 17 Chinese crew members, 17 Indonesians and five from the Philippines – it was not immediately clear which crew members were found.The wrecked vessel continues to slowly drift eastward, CCTV said.According to state media, 13 ships are still in the vicinity of where the boat sank.CCTV footage last week showed high-powered marine radar on ships that were trying to locate the capsized vessel, while crew members were seen using visual equipment to pan sea waters to locate survivors.Last Thursday, the Chinese foreign ministry said President Xi instructed that additional rescue forces be sent and that international maritime search assistance be coordinated.China's ambassador to Australia urged Canberra on Thursday to step up its rescue efforts to help locate the missing.

Iran, Saudi Arabia to resume diplomatic relations with China's help
China lowers the chance of armed conflict between the Mideast rivals — both directly and in proxy conflicts around the region.The deal, struck in Beijing this week amid its ceremonial National People’s Congress, represents a major diplomatic victory for the Chinese as Gulf Arab states perceive the United States slowly withdrawing from the wider Middle East. It also comes as diplomats have been trying to end a long war in Yemen, a conflict in which both Iran and Saudi Arabia are deeply entrenched.The two countries released a joint communique on the deal with China, which brokered the agreement as President Xi Jinping was awarded a third five-year term as leader earlier Friday.Xi, whose administration in recent days has relaunched a campaign to challenge the U.S.-led Western liberal order with warnings of "conflict and confrontation," was credited in a trilateral statement with facilitating the talks through a "noble initiative" and having personally agreed to sponsor the negotiations that lasted from Monday through Friday.READ MORE: Sister of Kim Jong Un warns North Korea ready to act against US, SouthVideos showed Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, meeting with Saudi national security adviser Musaad bin Mohammed al-Aiban and Wang Yi, China's most senior diplomat.The statement calls for reestablishing ties and reopening embassies to happen "within a maximum period of two months."
