US inciting confrontation in South China Sea - Beijing

Spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in the United States claimed Washington is guilty of "inciting confrontation" in the South China Sea following a statement issued by the US Department of State which denounced Beijing's efforts in the region.

The Chinese side "firmly" opposed the accusations made previously by the United States, referring to most of Beijing's maritime claims as "completely unlawful."

The embassy noted the US is "flexing muscles, stirring up tension and inciting confrontation," all "under the pretext of preserving stability," advising the country against taking sides on the issues of territorial sovereignty or getting directly involved in said disputes.
