 The Ministry of foreign affairs responded to the stranded Chinese tourists: Saipan: 713 people will continue.


Today, foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang held a regular press conference. A reporter asked about Chinese tourists stranded on Saipan Island. He answered that my airline had received 713 stranded tourists yesterday and will continue to send them back today.

Q: it is reported that the typhoon Jade Rabbit has caused about 1500 Chinese tourists to be trapped in Saipan recently. On the 26th, the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles announced that the airlines concerned had arranged to fly to Saipan on the 28th to receive Chinese tourists stranded by typhoon. Can the Chinese side introduce the situation? What has been done to help the stranded tourists?

A: On the afternoon of October 24, local time, super typhoon Jade Rabbit attacked Tianning Island and most of Saipan Island in the North Mariana Islands. According to the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles, about 1,500 Chinese tourists were stranded because of the closure of the airport.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs attaches great importance to guiding the Consulate General in Los Angeles with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Civil Aviation Administration, coordinating relevant airlines, travel agencies and tourism e-commerce platforms, and actively carrying out relevant work to assist my stranded tourists to return home. The Consulate-General communicates closely with the relevant departments of the United States, keeps abreast of the airports resumption operation time and relevant arrangements, coordinates the proper placement of my detained tourists, properly handles the problems of the expiration of individual Chinese visas, and ensures the safe and orderly departure of our tourists. The 12308 hotline of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the temporary emergency duty telephone set up by the Consulate General in Los Angeles remain open 24 hours and receive the consultation call in time. The working group of the Consulate General has been working in Saipan. Yesterday, Saipan International Airport was limited to civil aviation. The Airlines concerned actively organize their capacity, dispatching three flights to collect 713 stranded Chinese tourists. There are also scattered Chinese tourists who are leaving on foreign flights. The airline will continue to send aircraft to the remaining Chinese tourists today. Chinese tourists who are still in Symbian are also reminded to pay attention to the announcement of relevant airlines, to handle matters such as changing and purchasing tickets in time, and to return home safely and orderly.
