Taiwan says it was warned by China to not interfere in the detention of Taiwanese boat crew

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Taiwan says China warned its coast guard against interfering in the detention of a Taiwanese fishing boat in what is seen as Beijing’s latest attempt to assert its territorial claims in the Taiwan Strait. Taiwan’s coast guard repeated its call for the release of the boat and its crew members, who were taken from waters off the Taiwanese-controlled island of Kinmen just off the Chinese coast on Tuesday night. The call is complicated by China’s refusal to communicate with Taiwan’s current government. The boat has a captain and five other crew members, including Indonesians. China claims self-governing Taiwan is its territory and says the island must come under its control.
