U.S. dual carrier drills ramp up South China Sea tensions

Two U.S. aircraft carriers — the USS Ronald Reagan and USS Nimitz — are in the waters of the South China Sea. It’s the first time Washington sent two carriers for drills in the sea area since 2014. This happened when the Chinese navy had just begun military drills in the area days before. China’s Foreign Ministry said the U.S. had deliberately sent warships to the South China Sea to flex its muscles and accused Washington of trying to drive a wedge between China and countries in the region. What does the presence of the two carriers mean for regional stability? How big is the potential damage to already frosty China-U.S. relations?
