China Responds After Its ‘Noise Weapon’ Attack On Australia Navy Divers: Beijing’s Sonar Defence
The Chinese foreign ministry reacted to Australia’s allegation that a Chinese warship injured its navy divers, firing sonar pulses. Australia had claimed that a Chinese warship came near its divers despite clear warnings. The Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson, Mao Ning, said its military operates in accordance with international law. This comes after the Australian government had accused China of committing ‘unsafe’ actions at sea. Canberra had claimed that Australian naval divers were injured in an incident on Nov 14.
