“Crews affected by the storm of North Korean moto bots – 23 people – were rescued in the bays of the Unremarkable and the Red Rock. In the near future they will be returned to their homeland, “the press service of the FSB border guard department for the Primorye Territory said on Thursday.
One of the rescued fishermen of the typhoon was seriously injured and taken to the hospital.
It is specified that his return home will later be handled by the Consulate General of the DPRK in Vladivostok.
Also, the border guards clarify that almost all 300 vessels from the DPRK and the Republic of Korea, who took refuge from the typhoon “Jabi” in the bays in the north of the Primorsky Territory, left them and, accompanied by the Coast Guard, follow the borders of Russia’s border area. All fishing vessels move to the borderline on their own.
According to the norms of international law, foreign vessels have the right of forced entry into the territorial sea, internal sea waters and seaports of another state for shelter from bad weather.
