He said that according to preliminary data, the submarine is in the sea at a depth of about 700 meters and there is no communication with it, the crew is presumed dead.

The rescue operation continues.

“We are currently looking for her. We know the approximate area, but it is very deep, “ said Admiral Julius Wijohono.
