CHINA-VIETNAM
China says it is moving 2nd oil rig closer to Vietnam amid confrontations over 1st platform

BEIJING


China says it is moving a second oil rig closer to the Vietnamese coast in disputed waters amid continuing tensions and confrontations between ships from the countries.

The Maritime Safety Administration said in a notice viewed Thursday on its website that it was towing the Nan Hai Jiu Hao drilling platform to the south east. It said the 600-meter- -long rig would be in place on Friday and asked vessels in the area to give it a wide berth.

The shifting of the rig comes as officials from the sides said they made no progress in talks about the deployment of another Chinese rig.

China has blamed Vietnam for interfering with the first rig's operations and causing friction in their relations.
