China is cooperating with Finland's investigation into the damaged Balticconnector gas Pipeline, with a Chinese vessel being named as the prime suspect. Finnish Prime Minister Petteri Orpo confirmed diplomatic discussions with China and cooperation with Chinese authorities. The Hong Kong-flagged container vessel Newnew Polar Bear is the main suspect in the incident, where a major gas pipeline between Finland and Estonia was severely damaged by a dragging anchor. The Estonian government believes the incident is related to the damaging of two undersea telecoms cables. The ship has changed its operator to Torgmoll, a Chinese logistics company with connections to Russia.
