Chinese Spy Ship Spotted Near Allied War Games

A Chinese spy ship has once again been spotted just outside Australian waters near Queensland, Australia.  The biannual Talisman Sabre joint exercise operated by Australia and the United States seems to have caught Beijing’s attention. The exercise will run until July 31 and involve 17,000 troops. Similar Chinese navy vessels have monitored previous military exercises involving Australia and the United States in 2019 and 2017.
