5月8日,我第15批赴南苏丹(瓦乌)维和工程兵大队营救了尼泊尔维和分队淤陷的一辆装甲车和一辆卡车。

SOUTH SUDAN (WAU), May 11 (ChinaMil) -- The 15th Chinese peacekeeping engineering detachment to South Sudan (Wau) rescued an armored vehicle and a military truck of the Nepalese peacekeeping detachment to South Sudan, which were trapped in the silt on May 8, 2017, local time.

当日,一支尼泊尔维和分队在完成护卫联合国油料车队抵达目的地返回途中,误入河滩,一辆装甲车淤陷。

On that day, the Nepalese peacekeeping detachment entered a muddy riverbank mistakenly on the way back to its campsite after completing its mission of escorting a United Nations (UN) vehicle fleet loaded with petrol, oil and lubricants (POL), and an armored vehicle was trapped in the silt.

由于雨季已经来临,土质饱水松软,在他们自救过程中,另一辆卡车也遭淤陷。尼泊尔部队身处野外、缺少大型机械只能请求救援。

As the water-soaked soil on the riverbank was very soft in the rainy season, a truck of the Nepalese peacekeeping detachment also got stuck in the mud while rescuing the trapped armored vehicle. Being in an unknown wild place without large machinery, the Nepalese detachment had to ask for help.

事发地点距离联南苏团科瓦乔克基地近100公里,远离城镇,所带给养也消耗殆尽,还随时会受到武装冲突波及,情势十分危急。

Trapped in a place nearly 100 kilometers away from the Kuajok Base of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), far away from any towns and prone to local armed conflicts, the Nepalese detachment with limited provisions faced a very dangerous situation.

中国维和工程兵大队接到来自联南苏团西战区司令部的紧急救援请求后,以最快的速度展开救援行动。

After receiving an emergency rescue request from the Sector West Headquarters of the UNMISS, the Chinese peacekeeping engineering detachment started the rescue operation immediately.

中国维和工兵大队长王乃强了解情况后立即下达救援指令,瓦乌大本营派出机械技师、修理工携带修理工具和装备。

After knowing the situation, Wang Naiqiang, commander of the 15th Chinese peacekeeping engineering detachment, ordered to send personnel including mechanical technician and repairmen with repair tools and equipment from the Chinese engineering detachment's base camp in Wau.

科瓦乔克分队派出1辆平板拖车和1台履带挖掘机,双方驱车由陆路赶往事发地点汇合,由总工程师朱春风组织实施紧急救援。

He also ordered to dispatch a flatbed trailer and a crawler excavator from the Chinese engineering troops stationed in Kuajok to the scene, where Zhu Chunfeng, chief engineer of the Chinese engineering detachment, organized the emergent rescue operation.

10分钟之内,两台受困车辆均被成功拖出。救援过程中,尼泊尔官兵和当地民众高声欢呼,有的还主动上前拥抱来救援的中国战友。

About 10 minutes later, the two stuck vehicles were pulled out of the mud. The Nepalese peacekeepers and local residents cheered loudly, and some of them also hugged the Chinese peacekeepers.

中国工兵的专业素养和责任担当再次赢得友军和当地民众的称赞。

Chinese peacekeepers’ professional competence and responsibility won praise from Nepalese peacekeepers and local residents.
