Countries adjoining the South China Sea are troubled by China’s grandfather
At the same time, many cruisers and destroyer ships including the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson are participating from the US side. The US Navy will also conduct exercises with the Malaysian Navy with its warship USS Tulsa and P8 aircraft. Countries adjoining the South China Sea are troubled by China’s arrogance these days and they are expecting help from America and Japan. China is not only showing eyes to Southeast Asian countries, but is also eyeing the Japanese-occupied island.
Recently, China along with Russia had flown many fighter jets from near Japan. At the same time, tensions have already increased significantly regarding Taiwan. Some time ago, Japan had taught a good lesson to China engaged in implementing aggressive strategy of expansionism in Asia. A Chinese Navy submarine patrolling near Japanese waters was forced away by Japan. This submarine was sighted near the islands located in the southern part of Japan. After this, several warships and maritime patrol aircraft of the Japanese Navy have been deployed throughout the region.
There is a dispute between Japan and China over the islands
There is a dispute between China and Japan over islands located in the East China Sea. Both countries claim these uninhabited islands. They are known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaos in China. The administration of these islands has been in the hands of Japan since 1972. At the same time, China claims that these islands come under its jurisdiction and Japan should give up its claim. Not only this, the Communist Party of China has even threatened military action to capture it.
