China Sends 2nd Aircraft Carrier for 'Sovereignty' Drills in South China Sea (SCS)


China is also projecting its power and influence in the South China Sea.

The Asian giant just said that it will send its aircraft carrier, Shandong, in the South China Sea for drills aimed at asserting "sovereignty" as a standoff with the Philippines dragged.

According to Gao Xiucheng, a Navy spokesperson for the People's Liberation Army it’s a routine exercise. Gao did not specify the area where the training took place.

“It is completely legitimate and beneficial in improving the country’s ability to uphold national sovereignty and security,” Gao was quoted in a statement.

Few days back, the Philippines’ Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic resources (BFAR) did maritime drills in the West Philippine , which gave rise to Beijing’s call to Manila to respect its sovereignty over their territory which gave rise to a more “complicating” the situation.

Since last month both countries have been locked in a standoff over the fishing grunds in the West Philippine Sea, China claims it as its own because of its nine-dash line theory.

The reefs and islands that Beijing claims, despite falling within Manila's EEZ or exclusive economic zone, belongs to the Philippines, Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.

The Asian giant refuses to pull out its ships from the reefs inside the country’s exclusive economic zone despite daily diplomatic protests and summons on its ambassador to Manila.
