This big statement by the US commander on the bullying of China in the South China Sea

This big statement by the US commander on the bullying of China in the South China Sea

 The commander of the US   Pacific Fleet said on Tuesday that Beijing's aggression in the controversial South China Sea has not declined and continues to bully other countries in the strategic area. Admiral John Aquilino is on a visit to India. He met Naval Chief Admiral Karambir Singh and other senior defense officers.

Aquilino said that he and Singh discussed ways to enhance cooperation and information sharing. Admiral John Aquilino told reporters here that many countries are threatened by China's military deployment in the disputed watershed. Many of them are US allies.

There is a dispute between China and several other countries over control of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippine, Malaysia, and Brunei have asserted their claim to the islands.

Asked if he had noticed any shortfall in China's military mob, Admiral Aquilino said, "I have consistently witnessed bullying of countries in the region." I have seen islands or reefs turning and militarized into man-made islands, while the conversation is about defensive purposes.

He said, "They challenge and threaten all countries in the region — our allies, friends." But no deployments have been removed from those islands. That is why I would say that there has been no reduction in deployment and there has been increased pressure from China to achieve its objectives only in the entire region. Aquilino said that India and the United States will continue to work for a free and open Indo-Pacific.
