Washington: Groups of USS Ronald and USS Nimitz carrier strikes have resumed rare dual exercises in the South China Sea, for the second time this month warships have participated in elections.
More than 12,000 US military personnel between the two aircraft carriers and their escorting cruisers and destroyers were operating in the South China Sea as of Friday, CNN cited the statement from the US Pacific Fleet.
The statement said the two carriers, with more than 120 aircraft deployed between them, were conducting tactical air defense exercises to maintain combat readiness and proficiency.
“The two-carrier strike trained trains at the highest levels of power launch to ensure accountability for any contingency through power launch.”
Navy Lieutenant Commander Sean Brophy, aboard the USS Reagan, said on 8 July that each strike group is continuing on its respective operational work.
China, which claims 3.3 million square miles of the 3.5 million South China Sea as its sovereign territory, has reacted to the carrier’s presence in the region.
Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, said, “The purpose of the US actions is to carry out a campaign between the countries and promote the militarization of the South China Sea. This will ultimately reduce peace and stability in the region.”
“The world will not allow Beijing To use the South China Sea as its maritime empire. “The US stands to protect our sovereign rights to our Southeast Asian allies and offshore resources,” said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
The Chinese embassy in Washington called these allegations ‘completely inappropriate’.
The region is currently disputed between seven countries; Vietnam, Brunei, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia.
In 2016, China’s claim of a ‘nine-dash line’ by a court constituted under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) was arbitrary without any historical claim. The ruling was rejected by China.
