A strike group with US aircraft carriers has returned to the South China Sea , while tensions with the Asian country increase due to a possible visit to Taiwan by US Congressional leader Nancy Pelosi next month.

Authorities of the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet have confirmed the dispatch of the USS Ronald Reagan. “The aircraft carrier and its strike group are underway, operating in the South China Sea after a successful passage through the port of Singapore,” Commander Hayley Sims said in a statement to the Reuters news agency.

Sims added that Reagan “continues normal and scheduled operations as part of its routine patrol in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific”.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs criticized the American presence in the region with the Reagan navigation. “It is the biggest threat to the South China Sea and to the peace and stability of the Asian region,” spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Thursday (13).
