INCSEA Reprise with the Chinese Navy (CUES)

Back when the Soviet Union was still doing its thing, we had a series of encounters at sea that necessitated an agreement between the US Navy and the Soviet Navy.  That resulted in the 1972 U.S. - Soviet Incidents and Sea Agreement (INCSEA). (See http://www.state.gov/t/isn/4791.htm)
