"The escort missions are 100 percent successful," he added.

"We rescued 46 vessels which were attacked and chased by pirates, and escorted nine vessels which were released after abduction," he said.

China also cooperated with the European Union on four escort missions for food-delivering ships of the UN World Food Program, he noted.

In the third quarter of this year, he said, China voluntarily submitted the escort schedule of the Chinese Navy in the Somali waters for the first quarter of 2012 to facilitate the coordination of the escort schedules of the parties concerned and improve the efficiency of escort and counter-piracy efforts.
