Navy warship sails near Spratlys after US explicitly rejected Beijing’s South China Sea claims

Recommended Posts

The Navy sent a guided-missile destroyer on a freedom-of-navigation operation in the South China Sea on Tuesday, a day after the United States officially rejected Beijing’s claims there.

The USS Ralph Johnson, assigned to the 7th Fleet, sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands, according to a statement by the U.S. Pacific Fleet on Tuesday. The cluster of more than 100 islands and reefs comprise less than 3.1 square miles. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/navy-warship-sails-near-spratlys-after-us-explicitly-rejected-beijing-s-south-china-sea-claims-1.637697
