China claim South China Sea illegal

John Bolton, praised in a tweet Washington’s move to decline Beijing’s maritime claims in the South China Sea, urging to “move beyond freedom of navigation exercises to oppose China’s coercive behavior in the region”. The former Trump appointee stressed that “this is not a Chinese provence and will not be”.

Trump administration has denounced Beijing’s maritime claims over large swaths of the economically important South China Sea, wading into a conflict that has pitted China against several Southeast Asian countries with competing claims

Chinese embassy in the United States said in a statement dated Tuesday that Washington’s accusation is “completely unjustified.”

“Under the pretext of preserving stability, (the U.S.) is flexing muscles, stirring up tension and inciting confrontation in the region,” it said.

“The world will not allow Beijing to treat the South China Sea as its maritime empire,” Pompeo said

We are making clear: Beijings claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them,” said Pompeo

The United States on Monday rejected China’s disputed claims to offshore resources in most of the South China Sea, a move that Beijing criticised as inciting tensions in the region and which highlighted an increasingly testy relationship.
