Wang Yi, head of the office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, called on states outside the region to stop sending warships and aircraft to the South China Sea. He made this statement at a meeting of foreign ministers on East Asian cooperation, writes RIA Novosti.
As the politician clarified, these countries need to stop provoking disagreements between regional states and not try to achieve their geopolitical interests in this way. He urged them to play a positive role in maintaining regional stability, and not vice versa.“There is no need to send so many advanced ships and aircraft here again to saber-rattling,” Beijing stressed. Earlier, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said that the United States should stop sending military equipment to the Chinese border. This threatens the security and sovereignty of the republic, said the representative of the department.
