China Seized U.S. Drone In South China Sea

China seized an underwater drone, naval glider, deployed by an American oceanographic vessel in international waters in the South China Sea. US defense official said they are going through diplomatic channels to try to retrieve the drone.

The incident took place 50 miles off Subic Bay, just as the oceanographic survey ship, USNS Bowditch, prepared to retrieve the unmanned underwater vehicle, but Chinese vessel put a smaller boat in the water and picked up one the two drones. US official said the naval glider was used to test water salinity and temperatures to help in the mapping of underwater channels.

It is still unclear why China took this action. But apparently it may took the underwater vessel as an act of espionage.

The incident on Thursday occurred days after President-elect Donald J. Trump raised China’s ire by suggesting his administration could abandon a bedrock agreement on Taiwan’s status that has kept peace in the area for decades. Mr. Trump’s suggestion that the U.S. would maintain its position on Taiwan only if China makes concessions to American interests came after he broke decades of diplomatic protocol by accepting a phone call from Taiwan’s president, hitting one of Beijing’s most sensitive issues. ► WELCOM to Teacher ZUI!!
