Port calls often serve as a barometer of China-US ties. Last year, China canceled the vi

sit to Hong Kong of amphibious assault ship USS Wasp after Washington approved a $上海会所

330 million sale of military equipment to Taiwan and sanctioned the Chinese military over a Russian arms deal.

上海会所品茶微信In 2016, aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis and four ships in its strike group were denied port visits to Hong Kong after t

he US criticized China’s activities in the South China Sea. China also denied similar visits by US warships in 2014 and 2007.

Warship port calls to Hong Kong are defense and diplomatic affairs t上海会所

hat require special permission by the central government in Beijing, according to the Basic

Law of the HKSAR. The Hong Kong government is tasked with hosting and carrying out the details of such events.

Port call activities typically consist of diplomatic exchanges, repairs, refueling, restocking of supplies and local tours, sho上海会所品茶微信

pping and other friendly and relaxing activities. The Consulate General of the United States in Hong Kong and Macao is task

ed with submitting requests and other information regarding US naval port calls.

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs University, said the US Navy has a long track record of port visits上海会所

to Hong Kong given its strategic location, and requests for such visits must be submitted in advance.

“Hong Kong has been in turmoil for months now. Coincidence or n

上海会所品茶微信ot, the US Navy couldn’t have picked a more terrible time for a port call. It feels highly su

spicious and does not take the feelings of the Chinese people into consideration,” Li said.
