Tue July, 2021, Age: 2 years
China’s military said that a United States warship illegally entered Chinese waters near the disputed Paracel Islands because it did not have the approval of the Chinese government. However, the US Navy stressed that all ships have the right of “innocent passage” under international law. This comes on the one-year anniversary of the landmark international court ruling that Beijing has no claim over the South China Sea.
