(RED VOICE MEDIA) – Earlier this week, the United States Navy spotted four Chinese military ships near an Alaska island, extremely close to U.S. waters. The ships were photographed in the Bering Sea during surveillance operations. Despite their close proximity, it was reported that they remained 46 miles away from the Alaskan coast, which is still international waters.
A similar incident occurred in earlier September, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Chinese state-run publication The Global Times reported that U.S. ships have been seen near Chinese waters “in the name of freedom of navigation.” Beijing military expert Wei Dongxu said the warships were “a countermeasure and a signal against the U.S. actions of hegemony.”
