MyAfter a collision in the South China Sea, the USS submarine “USS Connecticut” landed at a U.S. naval base in Guam in the western Pacific. Eleven people were injured on the ship, the U.S. envoy said Friday. The seawolf-class submarine is now to be examined very closely.
“USS Connecticut” collided with an unknown object in the South China Sea on Saturday last week. According to the Navy, the submarine’s nuclear reactor was not damaged. It is still “fully functional”. None of the sailors were seriously injured.
The navy was initially rumored to be colliding “in international waters in the Indo-Pacific region.” The U.S. envoy confirmed Friday that the South China Sea. For “operational safety” reasons, she did not want to say how deep the conflict went.
Beijing is “very concerned” about the incident.
Following the incident, China called on the United States to conduct a “comprehensive investigation.” Beijing is “very concerned” about the incident, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Friday. He accused the United States of deliberately concealing the nature of the incident.
Zhao said Beijing expects information from the government in Washington about what the submarine collided with, whether nuclear power was released and whether the underwater world was affected. He has long been accused of disrupting peace in the South China Sea under the “free navigation banner”. China wants to expand its dominance in the South China Sea. So America is showing its presence more and more.
On Friday, the U.S. Navy announced that US aircraft carriers “USS Ronald Reagan” and “USS Carl Vinson” had participated in training with a Japanese helicopter carrier and a British aircraft carrier in the Philippine Sea. A total of 15,000 sailors from six countries were involved in the maneuvers. The Navy said the exercises would demonstrate the US Navy’s ability to work with allies for a “free and open Indo-Pacific”.
