It is worth noting that Richardson met with a number of Philippine military officials on the same day. For example, he held talks with the Chief of Staff of the Philippines, Carlito Galvez, and the commander of the Navy, Robert Empedrad, and subsequently visited a military base in Balawang, Philippines. Although the United States does not have any sovereignty over the strategic sea route of the South China Sea, it continues to send warships to declare "freedom of navigation" and calls for "peaceful resolution of the South China Sea dispute" and claims that it is in the national interest of the United States.

Richardson also said at the press conference that in the future, the US Navy will continue to communicate with the People's Liberation Army on the "Critical Immigration Guidelines" (CUES). In fact, as the United States and its western countries have recently increased the frequency of "freedom of navigation" and air missions in the South China Sea, the Chinese Foreign Ministry and the military have repeatedly protested and dispatched warships and military aircraft for surveillance and interception. For example, the US Navy’s Decatur destroyer was on the sea near the Nansha Islands in China on September 30 this year. It was approached by the Chinese 170 Lanzhou destroyer. The two ships were only 41 meters apart. The US ships were forced to avoid collision. Changed the course. On October 22, two American ships sailed across the Taiwan Strait under the "escort" of the PLA Navy's various warships.
