Beijing’s new law for foreign vessels won’t impact US Navy in South China Sea, Pentagon says


Recommended Posts

U.S. Navy operations in the South China Sea won’t be affected by a new Chinese law requiring foreign vessels to give notice before entering waters claimed by Beijing, according to the Defense Department.

An amendment to China’s 1983 Maritime Traffic Safety Law that took effect Wednesday requires certain vessels to provide a checklist of information, including call signs, positions, estimated time of arrival and the next port of call, the Chinese state-run Global Times reported Sunday.
