A Chinese intelligence collection ship has been tracked for a week off the West Australian coast and within 50 n miles (93 km) of a sensitive naval communications base, Australian Defence Minister Peter Dutton disclosed on 13 May.
澳大利亚国防部长彼得·达顿在2022年5月13日透露,一艘中国情报收集船已在西澳大利亚海岸附近被追踪一周,距离敏感的海军通信基地50海里(93公里)以内。
 
Dutton said the People's Liberation Army Navy's (PLAN's) Dongdiao-class (Type 815/815A) intelligence collection ship (AGI) Haiwangxing had been closely monitored by Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) aircraft as it moved along the West Australian coast and sailed past the Harold E Holt naval communication station at Exmouth.
达顿说,中国人民解放军海军(PLAN)的“东调”级(815/815A型)情报收集船(AGI)“海王星”号(Haiwangxing)在沿西澳大利亚海岸航行并经过埃克斯茅斯的哈罗德·E霍尔特海军通信站时,一直受到澳大利亚皇家空军(RAAF)飞机的密切监视。
 
Established in the 1960s the joint Australian and US base, named after former Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt, provides very low frequency (VLF) radio transmission services in support of Australian, US, and allied submarines.
以澳大利亚前总理哈罗德霍尔特的名字命名的澳大利亚和美国联合基地建立于20世纪60年代,提供甚低频 (VLF) 无线电传输服务,以支持澳大利亚、美国和盟国的潜艇。
 
Dutton said Australia had been tracking the Chinese ship in the past “week or so” but didn't put an exact date on the surveillance undertaken by RAAF P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and other assets.
达顿表示,澳大利亚在过去“一周左右”一直在跟踪这艘中国船只,但没有给出英国皇家空军P-8A“海神”巡逻机和其他资产进行监视的确切日期。
