US Sending Coast Guard Cutters to the Western Pacific to Counter China

National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien said on Friday that the US is deploying Coast Guard ships to the western Pacific to counter China. O’Brien accused China of harassing vessels in the region, threatening sovereignty, and illegally fishing.

O’Brien said the Coast Guard “is strategically homeporting significantly enhanced Fast Response Cutters … in the western Pacific.” The cutters will conduct “maritime security missions” with US partners in the region who have limited offshore capabilities.

O’Brien said the Coast Guard plans to evaluate the possibility of basing cutters in American Samoa. “If the survey is favorable, the United States could further expand its presence in the South Pacific,” he said.
