China Warns US after Airspace Violation in South China Sea

BEIJING – China accused the United States on Thursday of aggravating tension in the region after an American aircraft flew into the airspace over the disputed South China Sea.

It asked the US to be more mature and warned of consequences of such actions and blamed it for worsening military ties between the two countries.

China opposes military incursions into its territory and will “take all necessary actions to safeguard its rights and interests,” in the South China Sea, the defense ministry said.

“We demand the US to take a reasonable and mature attitude with sincerity and take actions to improve bilateral relationship. We ask the US to work together with China,” said ministry spokesperson Ren Guoqiang at a press conference, adding that military cooperation could be a stabilizing factor for bilateral ties.

Bilateral ties between China and the US have been severely strained over an ongoing trade war as well as spiraling military tensions.

Apart from the airspace violation, Washington had also recently imposed sanctions on high-ranking Chinese military officials, and approved arms sales to Taiwan.

Ren said the arms sale, valued at $330 million, violated the ‘One China’ principle, and was an “interference in China’s domestic affairs.”
