Union Shipping Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said Indian sailors stuck in China will be brought back soon as diplomatic talks are on with the neighbouring country.
Two cargo vessels with 39 Indians on board have been on anchorage in Chinese waters as they were prohibited to unload their cargo.
"Diplomatic discussion is going on this issue. Our seafarers will be returning to India very soon," said Mr Mandaviya.
Earlier, the Ministry of External Affairs said that India is in constant touch with the Chinese government regarding Indian ships stranded at China's ports.
"Cargo vessel MV Jagannath is on anchorage near Jingtang port in China since June 13 and has 23 Indian nationals on board. Another vessel, MV Anastasia, which has 16 Indian nationals is on anchorage near the Caofeidian port in China since September 20. Both ships are waiting for discharge of cargo," MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava had said.
