Harris will be the highest-level US official to visit the province of Palawan, sending a message to Beijing
Vice President Kamala Harris will visit a Philippine island on the South China Sea that is near waters at the center of a maritime dispute between China and several Southeast Asian countries that all have overlapping claims.
Harris will be the highest-level US official to visit the Philippine province of Palawan, which lies just outside of the nine-dash-line that Beijing claims in the South China Sea. The visit is clearly meant as a message to China, and Harris is scheduled to visit one of the Philippine coast guard’s biggest patrol ships, where she will deliver a speech.
