The joint patrol, consisting of four vessels, navigated more than 500 kilometers over four days and three nights, according to the Yunnan Provincial Public Security Department.

During the operation, law-enforcement authorities held video conferences to jointly analyze the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and public security in the river basin.

The patrol followed protocols on COVID-19 prevention and control, and targeted cross-border crimes and illegal activities in the Mekong River basin.

The Mekong River, or Lancang River in China, is a vital waterway for cross-border shipping.

China, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand have been carrying out joint patrols on the Mekong River since December 2011.
