China returns U.S. drone seized in South China Sea.
A Chinese Navy warship has seized an underwater drone deployed by an American oceanographic vessel in international waters in the South China Sea, triggering a former demarche from the United States and a demand for its return.
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said in a statement that officials made clear that the drone was unlawfully seized and urged Chinese authorities not to interfere with lawful U.S. operations.
Now, after what it described as “friendly consultations,” China’s Defense Ministry said it returned a U.S. Navy underwater drone that was seized last week in the South China Sea.
