China Accuses US Navy of Trespassing, Violating International Law

(RepublicanNews.org) – American foreign policy has all but collapsed since Joe Biden took over from Donald Trump. North Korea started testing anti-ballistic missiles, the Taliban are furious with the administration, and Iranian ships recently started harassing U.S. Coast Guard cutters in the Persian Gulf. Now, China is jumping aboard the train.

Military officials from communist China lashed out at the U.S. Navy on Thursday, May 20. They accused the Navy of entering the waters near the Paracel Islands, a disputed territory controlled by China and claimed by Taiwan and Vietnam.

A spokesperson for the People’s Liberation Army accused the guided-missile destroyer, the USS Curtis Wilbur, of illegally entering territorial waters “without permission” and called the incident “irresponsible” and “unprofessional.” Chinese officials also claimed they expelled the USS Wilbur from its waters, a claim the US Seventh Fleet disputes.

China, like other nations, is testing the waters with the Biden administration. It’s high time Biden reactivates Trump’s “America First” approach to foreign policy before it’s too late!
