Chinas Defense Ministry on Tuesday protested against the United States over the Connecticut nuclear submarine accident in the South China Sea, and demanded that Washington provide explanations.

The Chinese Ministry of Defense said, in a statement today, that the United States deliberately tried to conceal information about the collision of a US Navy nuclear submarine with an unknown object in the South China Sea and delayed the release of information about the accident.

“We noted that this time the US armed forces deliberately delayed and hid information about the incident. The collision occurred on October 2, and only 5 days later a short statement was made, with a brief description of the incident,” the document reads.

“China expresses its grave concern over this incident and requests clarification from the US side,” the ministry said in a statement.

The US nuclear submarine “Connecticut” was damaged by a collision with an unidentified object under water in the South China Sea in early October.
