          To date just show the flag ops to friendly ports in the Phillippines & Vietnam.

          Not the same.

          FONOPS means we go through parts of the SCS that China says is theirs

          This would be a major change of policy because we have the same policy as China when it comes to foreign warships transiting close by.

            • Japan sends three vessels to South China Sea in anti-submarine exercise | Japan Today | Oct 11 2020

              Japan's Maritime Self-defense Force conducted anti-submarine drills in the South China Sea on Friday, deploying three vessels including a helicopter aircraft carrier and a submarine, according to the Japanese defense ministry.

              The purpose of the exercise was "to boost their tactical capability", the ministry said in a statement Saturday, without giving more details on the geographical location of the drills.

              The three vessels will stop at Cam Ranh Bay in Vietnam over the weekend to replenish supplies, the statement said.
