Global Times special correspondent Wang Qichao reported in the United States: June 11, the U.S. Aegis guided missile destroyer “John McCain” drag China submarine sonar and Subic Bay in the Philippines near the collision, the United States, “Washington Watch” magazine published on June 17 entitled “China and the U.S. choose quiet collision …” article.
article first said, with “no time” event is different from “McCain” this incident is obviously an accident, “experiences” (accidental encounter), so the Navy does not need to overreact . Washington Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Pacific Forum under (Pacific Forum), president of Xhosa (Ralph A. Cossa), said, “If the accident (potential victims) is China’s submarine, because it This could be serious damage or even due to collision with the sonar device was sank. “U.S. Defense Department said publicly that they do not think the incident is China’s” deliberate “and is, because once the submarine’s propeller entangled sonar device would be very dangerous. .
article said the two ships “contact”, the “McCain number” destroyer is working with the other four U.S. warships in the exercises, according to the U.S. Department of Defense said, “The purpose is familiar with the operational environment and waters , shows the Navy in coordination with the possibility of Southeast Asia. ”
Taiwan’s military expert, independent think-tank Institute in Taiwan’s education policy that the Secretary-General Andrew Yang, the collision of two ships is “very occasionally and is not normal.” He said that when the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union to play cat and mouse game on the sea, submarine almost happened several times, the danger of collision. In this case, to the common interests of both sides, the two countries signed in 1972, accidents at sea and rescue agreement. Professor Yang believes that the mid-1990s, the United States warships cruising in the Western Pacific, several PLA submarines with “encounter.” Waters around the Philippines, mainland China is the submarine’s cruising range, so the Chinese submarine in that area there, but added, “normal”.
China and the U.S. Navy will continue for a long time strategic struggle, experts generally agreed that similar events will be endless friction.
Xhosa said that the Chinese navy is still more remote offshore operations, such as (collision) the risk of accidents will only rise. No one can expect China to the U.S. Navy submarine to tell where their location, as U.S. submarines would never tell anyone this information the same. This is why the United States negotiate some form of agreement for both maritime accidents is a good idea. Chinese Navy is more toward the blue water, they will think and act the same as the U.S. Navy.
