In news from the U.S. late Friday it was reported that the administration of President Donald Trump is planning an announcement relating to the ongoing tensions in the South China Sea area near Taiwan.
Played as a U.S. VS Beijing issue with both superpowers “vying for military supremacy” according to an overnight Bloomberg report, the region is home to hundreds of millions with more immediate concerns.
Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and other nations all have their own territorial claims in the region, and in recent years have been watching Chinese build-ups in the region turn to outright aggression in some areas – frequent intrusions into Taiwanese airspace by Chinese warplanes arguably the most obvious example of this.
In response, a number of U.S. Air Force aircraft flew over the same area in late June, although it is believed by some military experts that the timing could have been coincidental in that they were possibly tracking Chinese nuclear submarines passing through the same area.
