But the new commander of the American Pacific Fleet says the Navy is “very interested” in the events transpiring on China’s northeast coast. US Navy Adm. Gary Roughead told the Associated Press that he was watching to see what kind of equipment the two countries would deploy. “We’re interested in the complexity and the types of systems that they bring to bear,” Roughead said.
