China’s foreign ministry strongly objects to the US after two American warships sail near disputed South China Sea islands.
The Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson also said the US warships entered the waters without Beijing’s permission. The Chinese navy later warned the US ship to leave the area. The US destroyers sailed near the Chinese Nansha Islands as part of what Washington calls freedom of navigation operations. Beijing says nearly all of the South China Sea is its territory, while Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam also claim it partly.
