BREAKING: U.S. Warships Sail Near South China Sea islands Claimed By Beijing

Two U.S. Navy warships sailed  on Sunday near South China Sea islands claimed by China, reports Reuters.

The Chinese government condemned the action.

Reuters wryly notes this is  being done " as President Donald Trump seeks [China's] continued cooperation on North Korea."

U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to Reuters, said the Higgins guided-missile destroyer and the Antietam, a guided-missile cruiser, came within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands, among a string of islets, reefs and shoals over which China has territorial disputes with its neighbors.
