China has given a permission to an American aircraft carrier and escort ships to enter the Hong Kong port en route to the Afghanistan hostilities area. The Xinjiang sources which supplied the report call this decision "a significant sign" of Beijing's support for the United States' antiterrorist operation. The John C.Stennis aircraft carrier and seven escort ships will arrive in Xinjiang next Friday and stay there for five days. Then, they will make for the Arabian sea to join the three American aircraft carriers already found there.
