WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will likely carry out new freedom of navigation operations in the South China Sea soon, top U.S. commander in the Asia Pacific region, Admiral Harry Harris, said on Wednesday, without offering details.
Asked about any upcoming operations, Harris said: "I take direction and guidance from the secretary of defence and the national command authority on the conduct of those operations. I think we'll be doing some -- soon."
