U.S. Navy chief urges China to follow international naval encounter rules

TOKYO (Reuters) – The chief of U.S. naval operations, Admiral John Richardson, on Friday said he had urged Chinese counterparts to follow international rules during naval encounters at sea to ensure safety.

Speaking to reporters in the Japanese capital, Richardson added that sending a U.S. aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait remained an option for the U.S. Navy, despite advances in China’s military technology.
