A note from this country’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism appeared on the NHK television channel.
They stressed that four officials will travel to Egypt and will be willing to cooperate if asked to help investigate the incident and take measures so that it does not happen again.
Last March 23, the container ship Ever Given belonging to the Japanese company Shoei Kisen and managed by Taiwan’s Evergreen Marine Corporation ran aground at kilometer 151 of the Suez Canal.
The vessel, measuring 400 meters long and 59 meters wide, with a cargo capacity of 220,000 tons, paralyzed the route between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean for six days, until March 29.
The ship was refloated after several unsuccessful attempts to uncouple it with towing and dredging operations.
A commission including a representative of the Suez Canal Authority and experts in engineering, maritime law and compensation began investigating.
