Q: according to US officials, the U.S. Mccain missile destroyer in the adjacent waters of the Spratly Islands Meiji reef "freedom of navigation operations". Please confirm it, and do you have any comment?
Answer: in August 10th, the U.S. Mccain missile destroyer without the permission of the government China, entered the China Spratly Islands on the reefs adjacent waters, the so-called "freedom of navigation operations". Chinese troops immediately dispatched warships to verify the identification of the implementation of the law, and be warned to drive away.
Chinese sovereignty over the Spratly Islands and adjacent waters have beyond all dispute. The relevant acts in violation of China law and international law, serious damage to China sovereignty and security, seriously endanger the life safety of both personnel. China's strong dissatisfaction, and made solemn representations to the US side.

Under this background, some foreign forces against the current continued under the banner of "freedom of navigation" under the banner of affray, in an attempt to disrupt the current good situation not easily won. This clearly shows that, in the end who is unwilling to see the South China Sea remained stable, who is the biggest factor to promote the South China Sea "military".
China to safeguard the country's territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests unwavering determination, maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea will continue. The United States this provocation and forcing the Chinese to have to take measures to further improve homeland defense ability.
China urged the United States to respect China's sovereignty and security interests, and respect the joint efforts to safeguard peace and stability in the South China Sea countries in the region, and play a constructive role, do not damage the stability of the mutual trust between the two countries and regions.

The United States warships to the South China Sea for what purpose, is already known to all exposed ambition ". In the United States this show of force, promote regional military, and easily lead to air and sea accidents act, Chinese army resolutely opposed.
For a long time, in the joint efforts of China and neighboring countries, the situation in the South China Sea showed a positive development trend. But the United States under the banner of "freedom of navigation" under the guise of affray, sent warships and military aircraft Chinese illegally entered the South China Sea islands adjacent waters, a serious threat to Chinese sovereignty and security interests, seriously endanger both front-line personnel safety, seriously undermine peace and stability in the region.
At present, the overall stability of Sino US military relations. But the above provocations seriously damage the strategic mutual trust, create difficulties and obstacles to the development of military relations. We strongly urge the US side to correct the error immediately stop using the so-called "freedom of navigation" the name of illegal provocation. Military provocations will only encourage China forces to further strengthen the defense capacity building, firmly safeguard national sovereignty and security.
