US warship near disputed China-controlled island

United States Navy warship USS Curtis Wilbur has sailing near disputed Beijing-controlled islands in the South China Sea. Beijing which claiming almost all the South China Sea as its territory, said the movement of the US warship violated its sovereignty. 

The Chinese military’s southern Theatre Command claiming that the USS Curtis Wilbur has entered the waters near the Paracel Islands without permission. The US action “artificially increasing the regional security risks, and is susceptible to misunderstandings, misjudgments, and accidents at sea,” the statement said. In two days China has released a statement second time condemning the actions of the US warship. 

The US Navy said that its 7th fleet of the vessel asserted navigational rights and freedoms, near the Parcel islands, over which China, Taiwan, and Vietnam all claim sovereignty. The Chinese military’s comments about the mission were false said US Navy. 

USS Curtis Wilbur treaded the Taiwan Strait, which separating self-ruled Taiwan under a democratically elected government from mainland China. Beijing also claimed that Taiwan is part of its sovereign territory, but the self-ruled island has got strong backing from Washington. 

The South China Sea is one of many flashpoints in the testy relationship between China and the United States of America with Washington rejecting what it knew illegal territorial claims by Beijing in the resource-rich waters. U.S. warships have to pass through the South China Sea with increased frequency in recent years, in a show of strength against the Chinese claims. 

China is condemning the presence of the US destroyer in the strait.
