On October 27, the US Navy sent its USS Lassen within 12 nautical miles of one of China’s artificial islands in the South China Sea. The move received vast criticism as it was seen as an attempt to anger Beijing.

According to an American political professor, the United States is pursuing an ‘expansionist agenda’ in the Asia-Pacific region.

Dennis Etler, professor of Anthropology at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California, said, “The US refuses to recognize China’s claims and insists it has the right of freedom of navigation wherever it so chooses throughout the South China Sea, but there is a problem however with US intransigence regarding China’s claims,” Press TV reported.

“The rival Chinese government on Taiwan, the Republic of China, lays claim to the same territory and has built on and occupied islands in the South China Sea years before the People’s Republic of China began similar reclamations,” he pointed out.
