Washington sources reported that according to a statement from Pacific Air Forces two US B-52 bombers flew near contested islands in the South China Sea and "participated in a routine training mission". Accordingly the two B-52H Stratofortress bombers, which are based in Guam, "participated in a routine training mission in the vicinity of the South China Sea" the statement said adding that the flight was part of US Indo-Pacific Command's "Continuous Bomber Presence operations" which have been ongoing since March 2004.

As per report the Pentagon would not confirm which islands the B-52s flew by, but recent tensions have focused on the Spratly Islands. Furthermore the US regularly flies aircraft in the South China Sea, but Beijing is particularly sensitive about the operations when they come near areas where the Chinese government has built islands and established military facilities on disputed maritime features. Meanwhile Pacific Air Forces said Tuesday's "mission is consistent with international law and US' long-standing commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific".

US labeled the Chinese Warship

Recently, a Chinese destroyer sailed within 45 yards of the USS Decatur, forcing the American warship to maneuver to avoid a collision while it was sailing near the disputed Spratly Islands. Moreover the US labeled the Chinese warship's actions unsafe and unprofessional while Beijing said the US was threatening the safety and sovereignty of China.
