Deliberately sailing into areas China considers as territorial waters is not a good idea

June 27, 2019 | Media News

Professor John Quigley recently published an op-ed that was picked up by outlets such as the Los Angeles Times, Arizona Daily Sun and more. His article titled, “Deliberately sailing into areas China considers as territorial waters is not a good idea,” discusses the current tensions in the waters just off the Philippines coast that are claimed by China.

“The United States is raising the profile of its naval activity in response to Chinese assertiveness in the waters of the South China Sea,” Quigley wrote. “But it is far from clear that such activity on our part will resolve the admittedly volatile situation in those waters.”
