BEIJING, SANA- China asked the United States to provide full details about the accident of the US Navy’s nuclear submarine



Beijing-Sana

China has asked the United States to provide full details of the US Navy nuclear submarine "USS Connecticut" accident, expressing concern in this regard.

On the seventh of this month, the US Pacific Fleet announced that the attack submarine "USS Connecticut" had collided with an unknown object, which led to its damage and the injury of an unspecified number of sailors, refusing to disclose what the submarine collided with during the accident or even specify the location of the collision. .

"Such irresponsible and prudent practices give countries in the region and the international community every reason to doubt the intention of the United States," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian was quoted as saying by Xinhua, noting that the United States has so far made only a brief and ambiguous statement on the incident. Washington has long provoked unrest in the South China Sea under the pretext of freedom of navigation, which poses serious and major threats to regional peace and stability.

"China and other countries bordering the South China Sea have good reasons to ask the United States to respond, clarify the causes and circumstances of the incident, and be committed to responding to the concerns and suspicions of countries in the region and the international community," Zhao said.
