US Navy Threaten to Erupt South China Sea War after Joe Biden Warns Beijing

0 Просмотры
President Joe Biden warned lawmakers Thursday that China is aggressively outpacing the United States on infrastructure.

The phone call with Xi and the meeting with lawmakers come as the new administration works to address human rights abuses and mend trade relations with the world’s second-largest economy.

Two US warships have sailed through the disputed South China Sea just days after Beijing issued a stern warning to Washington, as tensions threaten to boil over between the two world powers.

The Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group and the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group conducted a joint naval exercise close to the Chinese-controlled islands on Tuesday. The US navy said the vessels “conducted a multitude of exercises aimed at increasing interoperability between assets as well as command and control capabilities”.

The mission was the first dual-carrier operation to take place in the South China Sea since last July.

The presence of US forces in the contested waters also comes just days after the USS John S McCain destroyer sailed near to the Paracel Islands.

The US navy said the vessels were conducting a “freedom of navigation operation” in order to maintain peace in the region.
