US Navy’s Top Admiral Cites Increased Threat in Atlantic

“Chinese military vessels are now operating in the Northern Atlantic, and Russian submarines are prowling those same waters at a pace not seen since the end of the Cold War, the Navy’s top admiral told VOA in an exclusive interview. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said China’s military movements from the North Atlantic into the Mediterranean Sea is a ‘new dynamic.’ ‘Even five years ago, we wouldn’t have seen anything like this,’ Richardson said. According to Richardson, the Chinese navy is a global one that is both ‘ready and capable’ of operating wherever Beijing wants.”
