China's expansion in SCS magnet for other navies
MetadataShow full item record
China’s massive military expansion in the South China Sea is now attracting other navies across the globe to sail in the disputed region. In what appears to be a test of China’s reaction, a French frigate is dropping anchor at Manila’s South Harbor on Sunday while a British warship is due to set sail in the South China Sea anytime this month. Philippine Navy (PN) spokesman Capt. Lued Lincuna said the French Navy Ship (FNS) Vendemiaire (F734) with one helicopter onboard will be docking at Pier 15 on Sunday for a five-day goodwill visit.
