British fighter jets and aircraft carriers will be operating in the South China Sea, one of the world’s most volatile hotspots, by the year 2020, according to the UK’s ambassador to the US.

According to Reuters, Ambassador Kim Darroch told a Washington-based think tank that UK Typhoon jets currently in Japan would likely overfly the region, though he gave no timeframe. He also claimed the UK’s yet-to-be-completed Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers would be operating in the area by 2020.

While he insisted that British military force would continue to be focused on the Middle East, the country would certainly be operating in the Asia-Pacific region.
