金门翻船事件 China-Taiwan tensions: Kinmen’s deadly boat incident

View descriptionShare

2月14日福建厦门与金门之间发生一起翻船事件,造成两个大陆渔民死亡。事发至今还无法了结。

台湾海巡署称,载有四人的大陆渔船当天违规越界进入台湾的禁限制水域,在被台湾巡逻艇拦截时,不慎翻覆才导致两个大陆渔民死亡。但是随着更多具体情节流出,外界才知道,台湾巡逻艇的船头原来曾经撞到大陆渔船的船尾。台湾海巡署又声称当时来不及录像,所以没有录像证据

这起事件的众多疑窦让大陆网民群起激愤。大陆海警船、渔政船也开始在厦门与金门之间的水域进行常态化巡逻,两岸的紧张局势升高。这起意外,要如何善了?

这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红、《联合早报》中国新闻资深高级记者于泽远及台北特派员温伟中解析金门翻船事件。

Tensions continue to escalate between China and Taiwan after a Chinese boat capsized near Kinmen on February 14, resulting in the death of two crew members. Kinmen is an island administered by Taipei but located just 5km from the mainland city of Xiamen. 

The vessel, carrying four Chinese nationals, was pursued by the Taiwanese coast guard for intruding into prohibited waters. The two surviving Chinese fishermen were detained and deported back to mainland China a week after the incident.

As more details emerged, public indignation grew. The fishermen claimed that their boat capsized because the Taiwanese coast guard’s patrol boat had collided with it. Taiwan’s Coast Guard Administration (CGA) subsequently admitted to collisions and stated it was unable to record video evidence of the incident. 

Following the fatal incident, Beijing stepped up patrols around Taiwan’s waters. China claims Taiwan as part of its territory, and has never renounced the use of force to try to bring the self-ruled island under its control.

In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong invites Lianhe Zaobao’s China News Copy Editor Yu Zeyuan and Taipei correspondent Woon Wei Jong to dissect how the Kinmen boat incident may affect cross-strait relations.
