Pentagon against Chinese military exercises in South China Sea

United States Department of Defense said it is worried about China’s holding of military exercises in the South China Sea, saying this step will diminish the situation in the disputed waters.

According to the official statement "conducting military exercises over disputed territory in the South China Sea is counterproductive to efforts at easing tensions and maintaining stability."

The Pentagon also noted that "the military exercises are the latest in a long string of PRC actions to assert unlawful maritime claims and disadvantage its Southeast Asian neighbors in the South China Sea."
