China urged the U.S. to stop provocative actions that violate its sovereignty and constitute a threat to China’s national security, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Sunday.

Earlier, the Chinese Ministry of Defense confirmed that the destroyer USS Higgins and the USS Antietam guided-missile cruiser took place on Sunday 12 nautical miles from the disputed Parasel Islands (Sina-whale) in the South China Sea, which China considers its own.

“The Chinese side has expressed sharp dissatisfaction and resolute protest to the American side, and we urge the American side to immediately stop such provocative actions that undermine sovereignty and threaten China’s national security,” Lu Kahn said in a published statement.

The representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry stressed that the PRC will continue taking all necessary measures to uphold its sovereignty and its security.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of China accused the American ships of unauthorized intrusion into the territorial waters of the PRC, calling their actions an unceremonious violation of the country’s territorial sovereignty and norms of international law.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
