China slams US for warship sail-by in disputed waters

China slams US for warship sail-by in disputed waters

Beijing on Wednesday accused the United States of a “provocative” act by sending a warship into disputed territorial waters in the South China Sea. The Paracel Islands are a chain of disputed islands and reefs in the South China Sea, claimed by China, Taiwan and Vietnam. “Under the guise of ‘freedom of navigation’, the US has repeatedly flexed its muscles, been provocative and stirred up trouble in the South China Sea,” PLA Southern Theatre Command spokesman Colonel Li Huamin said.
