China Rejects Request for Hong Kong Port Call of 2 US Navy Warships


The Chinese government has rejected a request to have two U.S. warships make port visits to Hong Kong in the coming weeks.

Two U.S. Navy warships were denied port visits to Hong Kong by the Chinese government amid a deepening political crisis as a result of anti-extradition bill protests that have swept the former British colony over the past 10 weeks.

“The Chinese Government denied requests for port visits to Hong Kong by the USS Green Bay and USS Lake Erie, which were scheduled to arrive in the next few weeks,” Commander Nate Christensen, the deputy spokesman for the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet, told CNN on August 14.


Coupled with the military massing on the Chinese border and in nearby Shenzhen, it would appear that China is poised to begin a Draconian crackdown on protesters in Kowloon etc?

What we're seeing here is a walk into possible chaos...

Already posted although it was in a different forum.

It's no surprise they refused permission, it could prove problematic for either party. What if the authorities lost control of the dock?

I wonder how the US would respond to China war ships requesting port in the US.
