The US Navy guided missile destroyer USS Barry conducted a “freedom of navigation” operation in the South China Sea Tuesday aimed in part at challenging China’s claims on the Paracel Islands

 

.@USPacificFleet: “By conducting this operation, the United States demonstrated that these waters are beyond what China can lawfully claim as its territorial sea, and that China’s claimed straight baselines around the Paracel Islands are inconsistent with international law.”
