The US Stands With The Philippines In The Ongoing South China Sea Conflict

SOURCE– Amid the rising South China Sea conflict between Beijing and the Philippines, the carrier USS Ronald Reagan dropped anchor off Manila to send off a message that the US would stand behind the Philippines in any conflict that might occur in the South China Sea.

For the past few weeks, the continuous South China Sea conflict has escalated, especially over Manila’s efforts to resupply the wrecked US-made landing craft on the 2nd Thomas Shoal in the internationally recognized Philippines Exclusive Economic Zone, which is also being claimed by China as theirs.

On October 2, in the ongoing South China Sea conflict, Philippine officials accused a Chinese coastguard ship of ramming a Filipino coastguard ship and a supply boat near the reef. There have been multiple accidents between Chinese vessels and Philippine vessels in the controversial South China Sea.
