China: The destroyer "Hopper" US Navy invaded the territorial waters of the PRC

52
The People’s Republic of China has accused the US Navy of invading the territorial waters of China. The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China Lu Kang said that the US Navy ship "Hopper" (missile destroyer) crossed the maritime border of China in the Huangyan Island in the South China Sea.


From the statement of Lu Kang:
Beijing regards such actions by the United States as a violation of China’s state sovereignty, basic international norms, including shipping norms.


China: The destroyer "Hopper" US Navy invaded the territorial waters of the PRC


It is noted that when crossing the sea border of China, the team of the American destroyer did not make the relevant request. Such behavior in China has been called "inappropriate, provocative and unprofessional."
From the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PRC (translation RIA News):
The Chinese Navy, in accordance with the law, made a “friend-foe” test against the American ship and warned him to leave the relevant waters.


It is known that the Chinese watchdog "Huangshan" approached the destroyer "Hopper".

It was noted that official Beijing will take all measures to ensure its sovereignty.

According to the official representative of China, the United States "by its actions undermines the foundations of peace and stability in the region."

For reference: on the Chinese maps, the island to which the American destroyer approached is called Huangyan, on the maps of the USA it is designated as “Scarborough Reef”. In addition to China, several states in the region claim this piece of land.

    China - verbally scaring the Anglo-Saxons is useless.
    Words do not act on them, only power. Example: - 1988, the Black Sea. Two patrol ships of the USSR: SKR "Bezavavetny" and "SKR-6" made a "bulk" on two Americans - RK "Yorktown", and the destroyer "Karon", which quickly retreated into neutral waters. yes

    Normal American policy of provocations. At this moment, it is more likely to depend on China how seriously it is ready to defend its territorial waters. Although it is precisely the Americans who are awaiting strong steps from the PLA to take further steps on the ocean to restrain China's ambitions.

      These are the "controversial" islands. Therefore, they cannot be "territorial waters of the PRC 100%"

    China is heavily dependent on sea routes - fuel delivery, resources for industry, trade logistics. The United States knows this and therefore is trying to tense the situation under the specious pretext of "freedom of international shipping." And China is trying to take over all the islands and archipelagos around it.

    I hope that the mess will not begin with us. At one time, the genius of Stalin first forced the capitalists to squabble among themselves ... but that was a long time ago. Now it may be like at the beginning of the 1 world war - as always, Russia is not ready, but several Russian soldiers are always ready to kill millions of millionaires for the interests of our partners. We can send the soldiers where the thread — the French remember, for example, they planted our cannon fodder. That is not the paddling pool! You look and the royal debts will be written off ... maybe. Well, they won’t write off ... yes, nonsense, we are kind.
