Alert – France To Challenge China With Biggest-Ever Air Exercise In South China Sea

France is increasing its military presence in the Indo-Pacific region, sending warships through the South China Sea, and planning air exercises to help counter China’s military build-up in disputed waters.

In late May, the French assault ship, Dixmude, and a frigate sailed through the disputed Spratly Islands, and around a group of reefs that China has turned into islets, pushing back against Beijing’s claim to own most of the resource-rich South China Sea. According to the Wall Street Journal, several Chinese frigates and corvettes tailed the French vessels.

So far the United States has taken the lead in confronting China over its territorial claims in the South China Sea, which are contested by several neighbours, particularly Vietnam.
