US warships show strength in South China Sea, China chilled, said –

China will continue to grant new rights under its expansionist thinking, looking at the land of neighboring countries. He also disputed the South China Sea, but now the US has given him a suitable answer. Two US aircraft carriers, including dozens of warships and at least 120 fighter jets, carried out joint exercises in the South China Sea on Tuesday. Frustrated by the US move, China criticized the exercise and described it as a ‘show of force’. The US Navy stated that the ships and planes of Theodore Roosevelt and Nimitz Carrier Strike Groups showed the potential of the US Navy in challenging environments with high traffic. As part of the dual carrier operation, the strike groups conducted several exercises aimed at enhancing command and control capabilities.

The last time the US Navy conducted a dual carrier operation in the South China Sea in July 2020, Ronald Reagan and the Nimitz carrier landed in Strike Group C. Following the US move, Wang Wenbin, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, said the continued ‘showing of power’ by US warships and aircraft in the South China Sea is not conducive to regional peace and stability. “China will continue to take necessary steps for national sovereignty and security and will work vigorously for peace and stability in the South China Sea while working with countries in the region,” Wang continued.

It is noteworthy that China has asserted its claim over most of the South China Sea, disputed by many maritime neighbors, including Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia. Rear Jim Kirk, Commander of Career Strike Group (CSG) 11, said working closely with Career Strike Group Nine (CSG Theodore Roosevelt) will improve our collective strategic skills while ensuring regional stability and security. In a statement from the Navy, Kirk said we can use the sea legally according to international regulations.

Spokesperson Wang responded to the announcement by French Defense Minister Florence Pauly, saying that the French nuclear attack submarine was one of two naval ships patrolling the South China Sea recently. Florence shared two photographs that she had completed a route in the South China Sea while on patrol. It shows the power of our Navy. At the same time, a spokeswoman for this, Wang, said there was no problem with freedom in the South China Sea. China has always respected the freedom of navigation and over-flight achieved by all countries under international law in the South China Sea. But we oppose the traffic of any country aimed at endangering China’s sovereignty and security and reducing regional peace.
