US Carrier Allowed Hong Kong Port Entry After Bombers Fly Over Contested Waters

• by Tyler Durdan

Beijing authorities granting the application for the port visit of the Navy aircraft carrier and three accompanying battleships comes less than two months after China previously denied a similar visit by a US warship.

A number of reports are interpreting the move as an attempt to ease tensions prior to Presidents Xi Jinping and Trump's expected meeting at next week's G-20 summit in Argentina. Significantly it also comes two days after the US Air Force flew two B-52 bombers over a contested area of the South China Sea where China has laid claim to international waters based on its military build-up on a chain of man-made and other islands.
