The Indonesian authorities announced on Monday that work to float the sunken submarine with 53 people on board had started off the coast of Bali.
They have confirmed that the Chinese government has sent two ships to the region to help with operations. In a statement, the Navy thanked Beijing for the help and confirmed that the ships ‘Nantuo-195’ and ‘Yong Xing Dao-863’ are already in Indonesian waters.
The ships have the necessary technology to carry out swimming operations at a depth of up to 4,500 meters. The submarine ‘KRI Nanggala-402’ was conducting a series of military maneuvers off the island of Bali when it lost contact.
The remains of the ship were found splintered into three large pieces at a depth of about 800 meters.
