The USS Laboon (DDG-58), an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, is part of the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group and is the fifth U.S. Navy ship to enter the contested waters in this year alone. According to the Russian News Agency TASS, the Russian Navy’s Black Sea forces are tracking USS Laboon. The Black Sea is a strategic waterway at the crossroads of Europe, Russia, and the Middle East. The resource-rich region houses clusters of hydrocarbons, oil and gas pipelines along with significant fiber optic cables.
It is increasingly becoming a geopolitical theater for confrontation between Russia and the NATO forces, led by western allies. What makes NATO an important player is the fact that three of the six bordering countries are part of this military alliance (Turkey, Romania, and Bulgaria) and two of them are aspiring members (Hungary and Ukraine). On the other hand, Russia’s interests in the Black Sea are driven by political, security, and economic concerns. The only warm water ports that the largest country in the world has access to, most of the Russian oil passes through the sea to reach European markets.
In April, Russia announced its plans to block a part of the territorial body which was immediately condemned by the US and its allies. Russian President Vladimir Putin says his upcoming meeting with US President Joe Biden will help establish a framework for bilateral dialogues about areas of mutual interest, including nuclear arms reduction. Putin made the comment during an interview aired on a Russian state-run TV station on Sunday.
He is scheduled to hold his first face-to-face summit with Biden in Switzerland on Wednesday. Putin expressed hope that the meeting will help restore relations. Putin added that the action illustrates Biden's professionalism. Pompeo, who served as secretary of state in the previous administration, remains one of the most loyal supporters of former President Donald Trump and his "America First" policy, Former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated on Sunday that when the Biden administration talks about "taking America back," he believes they are referring to the Obama administration's terms, when "America was weak." On "Fox News Sunday," Pompeo was asked to comment on Secretary of State Antony Blinken's interview, "Well, generically, when I hear the administration talk about taking America back, they are talking about back to what President Obama did for eight years where America was weak," What's important is not that they like America, but that they respect us, that we deliver good outcomes for the American people." Pompeo moved on to emphasize his reservations about climate change being at the top of the G7 agenda, claiming that initiatives like the Green New Deal will not improve the lives of Americans.
Later in the interview, the former secretary of state pushed back against claims that President Trump was soft on Russia. Pompeo mentioned how President Biden killed 10,000 jobs in the US by blocking the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, but allowed the Russian pipeline, Nord Stream 2, running gas from Russia to the EU, to proceed with the construction. In April, Pompeo joined Fox News as a contributor for the network, as he pledged "to give viewers a candid, no-nonsense look at geopolitics, international relations and the America First policies that helped chart the course for unprecedented American prosperity and security." Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison on Sunday expressed their strong opposition to "economic coercion," in a veiled rebuke against China's assertive behavior in connection with trade with Australia.
The opposition came as China has imposed high tariffs on Australian barley following Morrison's call last year for an independent investigation into a source of the novel coronavirus that experts suspect to have originated in Wuhan Suga and Morrison also affirmed their commitment to promoting coordination with the United States and India in the Quad grouping in an effort to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific. Tokyo and Canberra agreed earlier in the month that Japan's Self-Defense Forces will protect Australian military aircraft and ships upon request in noncombatant situations to bolster their security ties. In a separate meeting, Suga and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shared grave concerns about any attempts to force a shift in the status quo in the East China Sea, the ministry said, Beijing's repeated intrusions into Japanese waters around the Senkaku Islands in an attempt to undermine Japan's control over the islets,which China claims and calls Diaoyu.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said his government wants to restart dialogue with Beijing, “Australia is always ready to sit around the table and talk through how our partnership can be made to work.” Morrison said at a press conference on Saturday “We, of course, would like to see the dialogue that was occurring to continue again and start again,” That spilled into trade reprisals from China, including tariffs of more than 200 per cent on Australian wine for five years since March. Morrison said this week his government is seeking to take World Trade Organization action to resolve the dispute. In a radio interview on Thursday, the Australian prime minister said “barley producers in Australia, winegrowers in Australia, have been targeted with trade sanctions that we believe are completely unconscionable”. Beijing has said that Australian wine was being subsidised and sold under market value, a view that has been rejected by the Australian government. China was the top buyer of Australian wine before Beijing imposed tariffs, buying close to A$1 billion (US$773 million) worth of wine in 2019, about 40 per cent of all wine exports.
Australia’s attempts to make contact with Chinese authorities have repeatedly failed. In an interview on Sky News on Sunday, Trade Minister Dan Tehan said he wrote a letter in January to his Chinese counterpart laying out ways they could constructively engage. “I’m still waiting for a response,” he said.
China is expected to react sharply to the G7 leaders' joint communique that mentioned issues related to the Taiwan Strait, the East and South China seas, Xinjiang, and Hong Kong. China's embassy in London said "China's internal affairs must not be interfered in, China's reputation must not be slandered , and China's interests must not be violated," China's embassy in London said it was strongly dissatisfied and resolutely opposed to mentions of Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Taiwan that distorted the facts and exposed the "sinister intentions of a few countries such as the United States". NATO to Review Strategic Concept in Response to Russia, China Challenges, Decree to Be Ready in 2022 the White House said in a statement issued ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels on June 14 "Allies will agree to revise NATO's Strategic Concept, a framework that will guide the Alliance's approach to the evolving strategic environment, which includes Russia's aggressive policies and actions; challenges posed by the People’s Republic of China to our collective security, prosperity, and values; the statement also read.
"NATO also continues to monitor the Russian deployments in and around Ukraine," Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly expressed concerns over NATO's potential expansion closer to Russia's borders, pointing to the need to consider Moscow's reaction to the alliance's military build-up. Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) warplanes are expected to deliver an aerial performance for the celebration activities of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC), with a large number of the country’s most advanced stealth fighter jets, the J-20, and a type of newly developed helicopter, informally known as the Z-8L, A rehearsal was held from 9 pm Saturday to the early hours of Sunday morning in the Tiananmen area, Beijing, with more than 14,000 people involved in the rehearsal and related supporting services, During the day on Sunday morning, several echelons of PLA warplanes were seen flying through the sky in the rehearsal, including dozens of helicopters forming a formation representing the number “100,” a J-10 fighter jet formation representing “71,” or July 1, the birthday of the CPC, and formations consisting of five J-20 stealth fighter jets.
