US requires China to return intercepted underwater drone

93
News agency to Reuters reports on the interception of the American underwater drone in the South China Sea by a Chinese naval ship. The interception took place on December 15 north-west of Subic Bay (about 100 km from the capital of the Philippines). It should be noted that the American military base was previously located in this region (up to 1992 of the year), the goal of which restoration is being said in Washington.


Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis said that this was "a provocation of China, since the signs of his US identity were clearly visible on the underwater unmanned vehicle."

Davis:
We demand that China return the device and call for the exclusion of such cases in the future. On the drone there was an English inscription stating that it should not be removed from the water.


US requires China to return intercepted underwater drone


It is reported that the underwater drone was used by an oceanographic vessel. USNS Bowditch "Exclusively for peaceful purposes." The American fleet all goals are purely peaceful ...

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook states that "China has unlawfully seized US military assets."

At the same time in Washington can not yet conclude whether the Chinese actions were deliberate, or the ship intercepted the underwater drone by mistake. The US State Department protested about the actions of the Chinese Navy.

            The drone had an English-language inscription stating that it should not be removed from the water.

            English-language inscriptions are written for English-speaking countries. And the Chinese do not have to know their MOV.

      A Chinese navy ship that followed the hydrograph for several days launched a small boat that picked up the apparatus. The request for his return, which was sent by radio to American sailors, was ignored.
      Cook explained that this is an unguided underwater vehicle - an unclassified "ocean glider" that is used to collect military oceanographic data such as salinity, water temperature and the speed of sound. "It conducted routine operations under international law about 50 nautical miles northwest of Subic Bay in the Philippines," Cook said in a statement.

        If an American flag had been drawn on it, then it would have been regarded as an attack on US territory.
        And if there is no flag, then the law of the sea is powerless. It counts as cleaning the sea from floating debris. soldier

                    My neighbor does just that. All year round he hangs the state one, on May 9 he replaces it with the Victory banner, but on the eve of November 4 he hangs out the USSR flag for a whole week.

        May I remind you of how our ships intercepted the British reconnaissance ships that seized our torpedoes?
        They also had no crew and no inscriptions in English. However, when a weapon is pointed at you, and you are "with a bare ass", then decisions are made in favor of the strongest ...
        I personally do not know how the commander of a Chinese ship would behave if the Burke approached him with a "request" to return US property "back." Moreover, the owner of the drone witnessed his boarding to the hunfuz.

          I sympathize. It turns out that the Chinese special services are working not only against the United States, but also against yourself (Mordvin 3). Take care of yourself.

        If the African American is black-Negro, the Mongol and Chinese are narrow-eyed, Europeans are wide-eyed, then where is the insult in the words -Negro, narrow-eyed Asian or Dutchman with round eyes ..

            It’s not offensive, from the word at all. The same story with Moskal, especially for me - a resident of the capital. Apparently the whole thing in the intonation and arrogant expression of the muzzle.

    According to them, the captured device acted as part of an open oceanographic research program. He measured the salinity, temperature and purity of the water in order to facilitate the work of military sonar systems.

    Here is the key phrase "in order to facilitate the work of military sonar systems"... This is from the category of anecdotes. If you draw a flag of the country on a cruise missile and launch it towards the enemy in order to “measure the purity and temperature of the air, as well as the correspondence of the terrain to be flown to the memory,” then it should not be shot down in any case. stop

      What do you think? If you have lost something, then look. Found - ask to return, does not help - to the police or the court. China is entitled to reward for the discovery, plus reimbursement of the costs of capture, transportation, disassembly, copying and assembly of the apparatus. I’m afraid it won’t work, the Americans will count and refuse.
