PLA Navy expels US Warships Carrying Missiles Aid to Taiwan in SCS

U.S. Navy officials dismissed claims China drove away one of its warships that passed through the disputed Paracel Islands on Monday, saying Beijing's statement is "false."

The USS Benfold carried out a maneuver near the small archipelago earlier today, located east of Vietnam and south of China, which the U.S. Navy said was "consistent with international law."

Chinese authorities fired back at the move and claimed they were able to drive away the warship from the disputed islands.
