North Korea's frontier service believes the Russian ship Ternei detained by North Korean coast guards on the night of December 5 violated the country's border
North Korea's frontier service believes the Russian ship Ternei detained by North Korean coast guards on the night of December 5 violated the country's border, Russian Consul General in the North Korean port city of Chondjin Yevgeny Valkovich told Itar-Tass by telephone on Thursday. "The North Korean frontier service officials believe the Russian vessel is a violator of the state border and say it is necessary to transfer it from outer anchorage to the Kimchek port for an inspection," the consul general stressed. "This information has been conveyed to the ship owner and now everything depends on his decision," he said. According to Valkovich, on Thursday the Russian Consulate General handed to the Korean side an official note with a request to allow the consular staff to visit the ship. However, in the view of Valkovich, it will be possible only if the Ternei arrives at the Kimchek port, because it is difficult to get to a vessel anchored 60 miles away from Chondjin. The sea-river class ship Ternei was sailing from the South Korean port of Busan to Vladivostok with a cargo of buses, but was caught in a storm and had to find shelter in the North Korean territorial waters. The vessel was detained by a North Korean coast guard boat.
