China to Japan: Don’t Meddle in South China Sea
Published on Mar 16, 2017
The Chinese Foreign Ministry has warned Japan that Beijing will give a firm response should Tokyo interfere in the South China Sea. Hua Chunying made the remarks after media reports suggested that Japan is planning to dispatch its largest warship to the South China Sea. She also called on Tokyo to act cautiously. The Chinese Foreign ministry spokeswoman demanded that Japan reflect on its disgraceful past invasion of Chinese islands. This came amid simmering tensions in the strategic sea. Beijing claims sovereignty over almost all the South China Sea. Japan does not have any claim to the body of water, but has a separate maritime dispute with Beijing in the East China Sea.
