Japanese Prime Minister Offers Aid Over Yangtze Disaster

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offered Japan’s “utmost assistance” regarding the Eastern Star passenger ship which capsized after encountering a cyclone whilst traveling along the Yangtze River on June 1. Rescue operations have since stepped up a gear with cranes being used to level the ship, as well as a 55×60 cm hole being cut in its hull to allow divers to probe inside. The disaster has so far attracted over 4,000 people to brave the rain and join in the search and rescue operation. Netizens were extremely grateful to Japan’s sentiments, appreciating their professionalism in disaster aid.
