In first under Trump, U.S. warship challenges Beijing's claims in South China Sea (Wed, 24 May 2017) A U.S. Navy warship sailed within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built up by China in the South China Sea, U.S. officials said on Wednesday, the first such challenge to Beijing
in the strategic waterway since U.S. President Donald Trump took office. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the USS Dewey traveled close to the Mischief Reef in the Spratly
Islands, among a string of islets, reefs and shoals over which China has territorial disputes with its neighbors. The so-called freedom of navigation operation, which is sure to anger China, comes as
Trump is seeking Beijing's cooperation to rein in ally North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.
