The Heat: Freedom of navigation in the South China Sea

Earlier this month China expressed strong indignation after a U.S. warship entered China’s territorial waters near the Nansha Islands maritime area in the South China Sea.

This is the third such incident since last October and China has responded, saying the actions by the U.S. have threatened China’s sovereignty and security interests.
