The US Department of State made a statement provoking relations between China and other regional countries, ignoring the efforts of China and ASEAN countries to protect peace and stability in the South China Sea and deliberately misinterpreting international law rules such as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This statement came from China's Washington Embassy.

In the statement of the Chinese embassy, ​​“China's attitude and view on the South China Sea is clear, it has never changed. Determined to protect territorial sovereignty and maritime interests in the South China Sea, China favors peaceful settlement of related disputes through dialogue. China is insistent in controlling disputes through relevant rules and mechanisms and making joint gains through cooperation. ” expressions were used.

In the statement, which pointed out that the situation in the South China Sea is generally peaceful and stable and has been improving continuously, it was stated that negotiations were made and progress was made regarding the agreement called South China Sea Rules of Action.

Remarking that the USA is not a party to disagreements, the statement said: “Despite this, the USA, which tries to get involved in regional affairs, shows power in the region, provokes tension and encourages contradiction. Although he did not sign the Convention on the Law of the Sea, he uses the contract as a tool and criticizes other countries; It violates the sea and air fields of other countries under the pretext of navigation and freedom of flight. The United States must respect other countries' efforts to maintain peace and stability, while remaining true to their commitment to neutrality on territorial sovereignty in the South China Sea. ”
