DOD warns Chinese about military exercises, missile launches in South China Sea

“The PRC’s actions, including missile tests, further destabilize the situation in the South China Sea,” the Pentagon declared in a statement.

The Defense Department on Thursday warned the People’s Republic of China for carrying out military exercises with ballistic- missile launches in the disputed South China Sea, calling them “counterproductive” when it comes to successfully “maintaining stability.”

“Conducting military exercises over disputed territory in the South China Sea is counterproductive to easing tensions and maintaining stability. The PRC’s actions, including missile tests, further destabilize the situation in the South China Sea,” the Pentagon declared in a statement about China’s activities that started on August 23 and will run through Saturday.

China’s recent actions represents a breach of the nation’s commitments in the 2002 Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, the U.S. said.
