Bangkok (VNA) – The Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand on October 24 received two Vietnamese fishermen who had been rescued by fishermen and coast guards of Thailand’s southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat.
The two, 51-year-old Lam Van Con, from the southern province of Kien Giang, and 53-year-old Duong Van Hai, from the southernmost province of Ca Mau, were among six fishermen on a squid-fishing boat that departed from Kien Giang province on August 22 and sunk due to storm on September 22.
The two men were saved by Thai fishermen after five days adrift at sea, and handed over to police in Pak Phanang district, Nakhon Si Thammarat province, three days later.
Meanwhile, there has been no information about the other four fishermen.
A representative of the Vietnamese Embassy said the embassy will continue to coordinate with competent Vietnamese and Thai agencies to complete procedures to bring the fishermen home in the next 8-10 days./.
