US vs CHINA Latest News (July 18 2019) South China Sea Tensions Update Today

As officials in Washington and Beijing charged each other with ratcheting-up the militarization of the South China Sea recently, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson discussed ways to decrease risk in the region during a video teleconference with his counterpart from China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy, Vice Adm. Shen Jinlong.

The U.S. Navy said that the talks focused on “reducing strategic, operational and tactical risk between the two navies with the goal to minimize the possibility of any misunderstanding or miscalculation.” Admiral Richardson has spoken before about his concerns that even an incident at the tactical level between individual ships or aircraft could quickly escalate into a strategic incident through misunderstanding of intentions.

The discussion was the latest in a regular series of contacts between the two leaders to maintain open communications and positive military-to-military relations. The two admirals have held four video teleconferences and have met in person twice.
