Maritime Safety Admin-'Major Military Action' In Yellow Sea On 18 Apr


(MNI) London - China's Maritime Safety Administration has warned of 'major military action' in the Yellow Sea on Tuesday 18 April. The actions is set to be conducted between 0900-1200 local time (2100-0000ET, 0200-0500BST, 1000-1300JST).

  • The announcement comes as tensions between North Korea on one side, and South Korea, Japan, and the US on the other remain high in the wake of a solid-fuel ICBM test launch conducted last week by Pyongyang.
  • The US sailed a warship through the strait of Taiwan over the weekend following sizeable Chinese military exercises in the region. The actions being carried out in the Yellow Sea would appear separate from the previous PLA and Chinese naval exercises in the East China Sea.
