China says US warship illegally entered its territory in South China Sea

  • Washington rejects what it has called unlawful territorial claims asserted by Beijing in the South China Sea
  • China accuses the US of creating security risks in the resource-rich waters

In a statement, the Chinese military’s Southern Theater Command said the USS Curtis Wilbur, a guided-missile destroyer,  entered the waters near the Paracel Islands without permission, adding that its ships and planes followed the US vessel.

It said China opposed the US action, which it said violated its sovereignty and undermined regional peace and stability.

US actions “increase regional security risks, which easily cause misunderstandings, misjudgments and unforeseen maritime incidents,” People’s Liberation Army Southern Theatre Command spokesman Colonel Tian Junli said in a notice posted on social media.
