The director-general of Taiwan’s Coast Guard Administration, Wang Chung-yi,
visited Kinmen on May 7 in a bid to stem silt theft by mainland Chinese vessels in waters near the island county a short distance from the Chinese mainland.
Wang inspected several trouble spots including Beiding, Tianpu and Mashan aboard a CGA vessel to gain first-hand information on reportedly frequent incursions by Chinese iron-shelled ships in those areas.
