“It is great to be back in the South China Sea to reassure our allies and partners that we will continue to work for ocean freedom,” said counteradministrator Doug Verissimo, commander of Carrier Strike Group Nine. “In the course of the strike group’s operation, we have demonstrated our commitment to rule-based order in the Indo-Pacific region by working with our friends from Australia, India, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea.

During their stay in the South China Sea, the strike group will conduct fixed and rotary wing flight operations, sea strike drills, anti-submarine operations, coordinated tactical training and more.

Prof. Ben Schreer, professor of strategic studies at Macquarie University in Sydney, told the South China Morning Post that the passage of the US aircraft carrier in the South China Sea was intended to counter Beijing’s enormous demands on the water and allies like them Philippines that Washington was a “reliable and capable treaty ally”.

On March 20, according to a report by the National Task, about 200 Chinese maritime militia ships appeared at the Julian Felipe Reef (Union Reef) in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), an atoll within the EEZ of the Philippines for the West Philippine Sea.

The Chinese embassy denied claims that the ships were Chinese maritime militia ships, which claimed that the ships were fishing boats. They said they were only seeking refuge because of “rough sea conditions,” but air and sea patrols that week showed 44 ships were still present.

The Philippines Defense Minister said he would not be fooled by the Chinese government. “I’m not a fool,” he said in a statement he also posted on Twitter on April 3. “The weather has been good so far, so you have no other reason to stay there.” “These ships should be on their way out. Umalis na kayo diyan (go away), ”he said.
