When China seized an American drone in the South China Sea on Thursday, speculation immediately rose with pundits worrying that the move would worsen the already tense situation in the contested waters.

However, in a statement on Sunday, Chinese authorities have agreed to deliver the drone back again.

Adding to the tension, the American President-elect Donald Trump weighed in on the subject, remarking about the drone that China could “have it.”
