                   A U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer underway in the Pacific Ocean

The plan, which was relayed to CNN by several USA defense officials, suggests sailing ships and flying aircraft near Chinese-controlled waters in the South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait.

The main aim of the global force showdown is to carry out a highly focused set of exercises involving U.S. warships, combat aircraft, and troops to demonstrate that the United States can counter any potential adversaries, CNN reported.

Both the countries are now locked in a trade war slapping billions of dollars of tariffs on each other's export products.

Beijing said the us had no right to interfere in Chinese military cooperation with Russian Federation.

"When two big nations are confronting each other, it is necessary to maintain a proper military balance to avoid the conflict from getting out of control", he said.

Assuming the plan is approved, the operations would be carried out over the course of a week. But relationships can ebb and flow over time, so we have certainly a lot to talk about with the government of China and look forward to the trip.

Major global newspapers including The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Washington Post and the Telegraph in London have previously carried China Watch as paid advertising.

The China Watch supplement appeared the same week the United States slapped $US200 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods, and carried stories about China buying soy beans from South America instead of Iowa.

Also last week the United States flew B-52 bombers over the South China Sea and East China Sea.

The youngster was aggressive right from the word go and made sure he latched on to the bad deliveries, which often came his way. Shaw got to the three-figure mark in the second session of the first day's play at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

In a statement on the incident, the Chinese Ministry of Defense said that its ship had "given a warning to leave" to the vessel after it entered the area 'without permission'.

The Navy described the encounter Sunday in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea as "an unsafe and unprofessional maneuver".

On Sunday, a Chinese destroyer almost collided with the USS Decatur, which was carrying out a freedom of navigation operation and sailing close to the China-claimed Gaven Reef.

In a speech that also takes aim at China's controversial use of huge loans to exert influence in developing countries, Pence will cite a recent near-miss between a USA destroyer and Chinese vessel in the South China Sea as a sign of "reckless harassment" in the region.

The Chinese vessel, according to the Pacific Fleet, engaged in "increasingly aggressive" behavior.

The US and China have clashed over a wide range of issues, including trade,Taiwan, sanctions, and increased American military activity in the disputed South China Sea, which China and other Asian nations hold certain claims to.

Reuters reported on Sunday that China canceled a security meeting with Mattis that had been planned for October.

Pence will say the USA intelligence community has determined that China is targeting U.S. state and local governments and officials to exploit any divisions between federal and local levels on policy. "We'll sort this out".
