China threatens peace in Southeast Asia - Bolton

John Bolton, National Security Advisor to the United States President, took to Twitter to criticize China's policy in Southeast Asia by claiming it threatens "peace and stability" with its "coercive behavior."

"Respect for sovereignty & freedom of navigation are fundamental to the Indo-Pacific vision shared by U.S. & Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). China’s coercive behavior towards its Southeast Asian neighbors is counterproductive & threatens regional peace & stability," President Donald Trump's close aide wrote.

Earlier in July, the US Defense Department slammed China for carrying out missile tests in the disputed waters of the South China Sea.
