China Denies US Navy Request For Two Upcoming Port Visits - Defense Dept

22:26 13.08.2019(updated 22:54 13.08.2019)

The US Defense Department revealed Tuesday that China has rejected inquiries from the US Navy, requesting permission for two vessels to make port in Hong Kong in the coming weeks.

It has been reported that the two ships in question were the USS Green Bay and USS Lake Erie, which were set for visits in the semi-autonomous city in late August and September.



However, the denial is not unprecedented, as China previously denied a similar request in September 2018 from the US Navy's USS Wasp F-35 carrier. At the time, the rejected port call came amid trade tensions between the US and China and Beijing's decision to recall an admiral from the International Seapower Symposium.

The latest port denial comes as protests in Hong Kong continue to cause turmoil in the city and as demonstrators managed to paralyze the Hong Kong airport for a second day. Earlier on in the day, US President Donald Trump fired off a tweet, revealing that intelligence sources had indicated Beijing was "moving troops to the border with Hong Kong."
