Chinese ship inches closer to Vietnam coastline amid South China Sea tensions

Chinese ship inches closer to Vietnam coastline amid South China Sea tensionsA Chinese survey vessel on Saturday extended its activities to an area closer to Vietnam’s coastline, ship tracking data showed, after the United States and Australia expressed concern about China’s actions in the disputed waterways. The Haiyang Dizhi 8 vessel first entered Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) early last month where it began a weeks-long seismic survey, triggering a tense standoff between military and coastguard vessels from Vietnam and China. The Chinese vessel continued to survey Vietnam’s EEZ on Saturday under escort from at least four ships and was around 102 kilometres (63 miles) southeast of Vietnam’s Phu Quy island and 185 kilometres (115 miles) from the beaches of the southern city of Phan Thiet, according to data from Marine Traffic, a website that tracks vessel movements.

Wary of shutdown, Trump inches toward support for funding deal

Wary of shutdown, Trump inches toward support for funding dealU.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday edged toward backing a deal in Congress on government funding that would not meet his demand for $ 5.7 billion for a wall on the Mexican border but would avert a partial government shutdown. Trump, widely blamed for a five-week shutdown that ended in January, said he did not want to see federal agencies close again because of fighting over funds for the wall, one of his signature campaign promises in the 2016 election. Trump said he would hold off on a decision until he sees actual legislation about the issue.
