According to three U.S. officials, a U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer, the Chafee, sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea, Reuters reported Oct. 10. Though the Chafee did not sail within the territorial limits of the island, 12-nautical miles, it came close. This takes place amid efforts by U.S. President Donald Trump to seek China’s cooperation on North Korea.
