Amid Tension, US Warship Sails Near South China Sea Area Claimed By China

An official said that USS Decatur conducted a freedom of navigation operation (Representational)


An American warship has sailed through waters off the contested Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, in the latest implicit challenge to Beijing’s sweeping territorial claims in the region, the Pentagon said Sunday.

“Guided-missile destroyer USS Decatur conducted a freedom of navigation operation,” an official told AFP. “Decatur sailed within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson reefs in the Spratly Islands.”

The official said all US military operations in the area “are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows.”

The 12-mile distance is commonly accepted as constituting the territorial waters of a landmass.  Beijing claims all of the Spratly chain.

There was no immediate reaction from China, but a similar US operation in July, involving the disputed Paracel islands, prompted a furious Beijing to deploy military vessels and fighter jets. 

The Paracels, north of the Spratly Islands, are claimed by China, Taiwan and Vietnam.

On May 25, the guided-missile destroyer USS Dewey sailed less than 12 nautical miles from a reef in the Spratly archipelago.

China claims nearly all of the South China Sea, though Taiwan, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam all claim parts of it.

Further angering those countries, and the US, Beijing has moved aggressively to build reefs into artificial islands capable of hosting military planes.

US-Chinese relations have been strained on multiple levels since  Donald Trump became president in 2017. A trade war launched by Trump has infuriated Beijing, as did his authorization of a $1.3 billion arms sale to Taiwan, which China considers a rebel province.

Chelsea’s David Luiz Loving Life Under Maurizio Sarri

“Sarri is giving us a lot of happiness to play football. We are trying to enjoy,” Luiz told Chelsea TV.

“He gives us a lot of confidence. He shows us what he wants. He gives us the details about the game.

“He works hard in every situation. And also as a human he’s a fantastic person.”

The Brazilian defender added: “Every single day he says to us ‘you have the best job in the world, so you have to enjoy’.

“You have to try to do this with a big smile. Many people in the world don’t have this privilege.”

Luiz helped Chelsea win the 2016/17 Premier League title in former manager Antonio Conte’s first season as Blues boss.

But he fell out of favour with Conte last season, while injuries kept him sidelined as well.

Luiz, however, is finding life under another Italian boss in the 59-year-old Sarri far more agreeable, while insisting no one at Chelsea is getting carried away by their fine start to the season.

“We’re not going to win the title in this (game, against Liverpool),” he said of a match where Eden Hazard had given Chelsea the lead.

“We tried to do our best to win the game and we continue to work hard every day. The season is long, it’s just the beginning. Let’s continue to play.”

Former Chelsea forward Sturridge’s 50th league goal for Liverpool came in the 89th minute and ensured the Reds remained undefeated in the league ahead of next weekend’s clash with Premier League champions Manchester City.

Hazard’s sixth goal of the season had looked like giving Chelsea all three points before Sturridge’s late intervention.

“Every point counts in the Premier League,” former Chelsea striker Sturridge told Liverpool’s website.

“It’s important for every club to try to pick up points and these games are important, but even if you drop points in these games it’s about having the consistency throughout the whole season because this is just one game in 38 anyway.”

A Week Later, Justice Continues To Evade Meerut Victims

The woman was slapped repeatedly by a female cop while her colleagues passed objectionable remarks.


A week after a Hindu woman and a Muslim man were targeted by a group of right-wing activists and four policemen in Meerut for being friends, they seem no closer to getting justice. While three of the four policemen have been “punished” with a transfer to Gorakhpur, the home constituency of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, none of the 18 right-wing activists have been taken into custody so far.

This was hardly what the two expected when Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police OP Singh promised to take corrective action against the “errant cops” immediately after the incident came to light. Today, with no FIR being filed against any of the police personnel involved and all their attackers — purportedly affiliated to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad — walking free, the victims of the attack have decided to stay away from Meerut for fear of being attacked again.

“I don’t want to return to college because I am scared and embarrassed. I get frequent threat calls from the accused and their relatives… they say they will come to my college and kill me,” the man said. He does not expect the police to provide protection, given that he has not even been called to record a statement yet.

The Uttar Pradesh police, however, maintained that the three cops — Neetu Singh, Salek Chand and Priyanka — have been transferred to Gorakhpur to ensure a fair investigation. Shahensar Pal, a home guard who was also in the vehicle, remains in Meerut.

When NDTV contacted Meerut Superintendent of Police (City) Ranvijay Singh, he claimed that the police were busy with the ongoing Kranti Yatra. “We will look into this case after that,” he said.

According to the Muslim man, the incident occurred on September 23 when the woman dropped by his residence to collect a book. “She was just about to leave when a group of people came along and started asking me my name. They then began to beat me up, saying that it was unsavoury for two people from different communities to meet like this. They told me that it always starts with friendship, then advances to romance and love jihad,” he said.

According to the victim, his assailants hit him all over his body — including his private parts — until his eyes and nose began to bleed. They received no relief even when a UP 100 van arrived at the spot some time later; the police simply picked up the woman and left.

The nightmare was far from over. The woman was slapped repeatedly by a female cop – identified as Ms Singh – in the police vehicle even as the others passed objectionable remarks.

Videos of both the incidents went viral in the days that followed, and the policemen were suspended in the midst of widespread uproar. Even Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police OP Singh took to Twitter to promise stringent action.

“The Meerut incident is an act of gross imprudence by a few errant cops. Irresponsible and insensitive behaviour by UP cops will not be tolerated. The job of a policeman is to maintain the highest standards of probity, which must be upheld at all times. Corrective action is being taken,” he tweeted.

Macedonia Votes For Name Country’s Name Change. Here’s Why

Supporters of boycott for the name-change referendum celebrate after low-turnout (AFP)

Skopje, Macedonia: 

The vast majority of voters in Sunday’s referendum in Macedonia supported a plan to rename the country aimed at ending a decades-long spat with Greece and unlocking a path to NATO and EU membership.

With ballots from 80 percent of polling stations counted, 91.2 percent of votes were in favour of the name changing to North Macedonia, compared to 5.6 percent opposing the move, according to the electoral commission’s official count.

However, the vote was marred by a low turnout, with only a third of the electorate voting.

Greece reacted to the result with the Foreign Ministry saying it “remains committed” to its June agreement with Skopje under which Athens would drop its objections to Macedonia joining the EU and NATO in return for a change of name,

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras expressed his support for his Macedonian counterpart in a telephone call in which he hailed the “determination and courage” of Zoran Zaev to “complete the implementation of this agreement”, a government source told AFP.

Zaev had earlier voiced confidence that the country would support a yes vote.

“I think the huge majority of the citizens who voted have chosen the European path for Macedonia,” the social-democrat leader said, an hour after the polls closed.

But two-thirds of voters stayed away from the polling stations for the non-binding referendum on whether to change the name of the country to “North Macedonia”.

Zaev urged the rightwing opposition, who might well question the vote’s credibility due to the low turnout, to “respect the democratic will of the citizens” and ratify the deal in parliament or face “early parliamentary elections”.

For the two-thirds parliamentary majority required to ratify the result, Zaev and his coalition partners from the ethnic Albanian minority need at least a dozen MPs from the opposition to back the move.

Opponents of the change, who had called for a boycott of the name-change referendum, announced plans for a celebration outside parliament, where they had set up a stage during the afternoon. However, barely 300 people gathered there an hour and a half after the polls closed.

The vote is an emotional moment for a country that has struggled for recognition of its name since 1991, when the former Yugoslav republic declared independence.

At the time, Athens kicked up a major fuss, accusing Skopje of stealing the name of its own northern province, which is also called Macedonia.

The dispute dives deep into history with both countries vying to lay claim to Alexander the Great’s ancient empire of Macedon, which spanned their territories.

Zaev has billed the referendum as a painful but “historic” opportunity to break the 27-year-old stalemate.

The June deal, however, has been openly opposed by Macedonia’s President Gjorge Ivanov, who is allied with the nationalist opposition and had supported calls for a boycott of the referendum. 

An open door?

Few Macedonians are enthused about the new name, saying they have been unfairly bullied by Greece.

“I am not happy and I do not know anyone who likes this deal,” said 55-year old Danica Taneska, who admitted voting ‘no’ to the change.

But a desire to anchor their future to the West — and the economic prosperity that it could bring — has been a driving force behind the ‘yes’ vote in one of Europe’s poorest nations.

– Greece watching closely –

The referendum is not binding, but a ‘yes’ majority gives parliament a political mandate to change the constitution.

Sunday’s vote was closely watched across the border in Greece, where nationalists staged a protest against the deal earlier this month.

“We hope for a positive outcome for the proceedings to progress with the constitutional review,” Greek government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on the radio earlier.

“Any other result would create a disturbance.”

Western Balkans foothold

Europe and the US have campaigned hard for the deal, with many leaders passing through Skopje this month to urge Macedonians to seize the “historic” opportunity.

NATO has already issued an invite — on hold until the deal passes — while EU accession talks are scheduled to begin next year.

The West is keen to have another foothold in the Western Balkans, a region where Russia, which is opposed to NATO expansion, has historically had influence.

At home, those in favour of the deal say a desire for an EU future is helping bind ethnic Macedonians with the Albanian minority, who are broadly pro-West.

While Macedonia avoided the full-scale inter-ethnic wars that rippled across the region during the collapse of Yugoslavia, it was roiled by an Albanian insurgency in 2001 that left more than 100 dead.

A peace deal was reached later that year granting Albanians more political rights, but tensions have remained.
