US Deploys Warship for an Operation in South China Sea

USS Preble

In response, the command mobilized air and maritime forces to identify and warn the U.S. ship in accordance with laws and regulations, Li said. In another operation in the South China Sea, the US Coast Guard cutter Bertholf and two Philippine coast guard vessels practiced search-and-rescue procedures on May 14 near the Scarborough Shoal-without breaching the 12-nautical mile limit.

The shoal was the site of a major standoff in 2012 between China and the Philippines.

Still, the Philippines will not yield its South China Sea claims in exchange for improved economic ties, the foreign secretary said. The U.S. forces are often accompanied by allied navies such as the Australian one, the Japanese one or even the French one.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said the US destroyer Preble on Sunday trespassed in the adjacent waters of China's Huangyan Island without permission from the Chinese government.

"That's about interoperability, that's about increasing their capabilities", said Stephen Nagy, senior associate politics and worldwide studies professor at global Christian University in Tokyo.

Nevertheless, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang, when asked about state media reports suggesting there would be no more trade negotiations, responded that China always sought to resolve disputes with the United States via dialogue.

The ships sailed from Busan, South Korea, to Singapore from May 2-8 as part of an ongoing worldwide commitment to protect trade routes and ensure economic security.

Sunday's incident marks the second such United States intrusion into the South China Sea this month.

Earlier this month, two USA warships entered waters adjacent to Gaven and Chigua reefs in the Spratlys, sparking fury from China.

China rebuffs Trump claim U.S. tariffs are making firms leave
Skechers U.S.A. makes roughly 65% of its products in China, yet only some is imported to the U.S., Bloomberg notes. Canada and the US reached a deal Friday to lift those tariffs and they were physically removed today.

The operation also followed U.S.

USA pressure in the sea has prevented China from changing the nature of the South China.

Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam have competing claims in the region. They value mainly it for fisheries and undersea fossil fuel deposits.

US nuclear-capable bombers also have flown missions over the South China Sea and Navy aircraft carriers have sailed in sea in groups and singly in recent months. Among the would-be crimes: drug traffic and illegal fishing.

Lu said China consistently respects and upholds various nations' freedom of navigation and flight in the region in accordance with worldwide law.

Chinese officials said the operations could have a negative impact on trade negotiations.

They say the boats are digging up coral reefs to harvest giant clams.

The cutter reached port in Manila on Wednesday to "share experiences" on maritime law enforcement, the U.S. Indo Pacific Command statement added, quoting the vessel's commanding officer.

China fumes over the American military presence, at sea or on air it what it sees as its own territory. But a July 2016 ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) at The Hague in The Netherlands has invalidated China's nine-dash line. Philippine defense officials are handling the USA side of that equation, including coast guard ties, he said. In Washington's opinion, they will serve as military bases.
