The US and China have once again come face to face in the South China Sea (SCS). The latest dispute between the two superpowers has started because of a warship recently deployed by the US in the South China Sea. A frontline US warship overtook Mischief Reef, located close to the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.
In response to this, China has also now deployed fighter jets on its artificial islands, after which the tension in the area has increased significantly due to the ongoing counter-attack between the two. After the arrival of the destroyer aircraft of the US Navy in the South China Sea, China has strongly attacked America. China has said that America is the most destructive of the peace of the global community. Along with this, China has prepared fighter jets in the South China Sea.

The US Navy destroyer USS Benfold on Wednesday overtook Mischief Reef near the Spratly Islands, known as Nansha in China, saying it was part of FONOP (Freedom of Navigation Operations).
The US said in a statement that on September 8, the USS Benfold (DDG 65) went further in the Spratly Islands in accordance with international law, emphasizing navigational rights and freedoms. During this time the rights, freedoms and lawful uses of the sea were upheld under FONOP. The USS Benfold demonstrated that Mischief Reef, which is low tide in its natural state, does not fall under international law as a territorial sea.
After this move of America, China is furious and has issued a warning to the American ship to leave immediately. China claims almost all of the South China Sea, including the Spratly Islands, although many of its maritime neighbors, including the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei, oppose China’s claim.
