China test anti-ship missiles in the SCS - Pentagon

The United States of America thru Pentagon said that the Chinese has launched missiles in the West Philippine Sea and they find it “disturbing” and contrary to pledges that they would not militarize the disputed area.

“Pentagon was aware of the Chinese missile launch from the man-made structures in the South China Sea near the Spratly Islands,” Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Dave Eastburn said.
“I’m not going to speak on behalf of all the sovereign nations in the region, but I’m sure they agree that the PRC’s behavior is contrary to its claim to want to bring peace to the region and obviously actions like this are coercive acts meant to intimidate other (South China Sea) claimants,” Eastburn added.

PRC is an acronym for the People’s Republic of China.
The South China Sea has long been considered as the next flashpoint between the US and China, and was recently exacerbated when they have been insisting their nine-dash line claim base on historical right, and has reclaimed some rock features in the area which is now a military base.
China and the United States have repeatedly traded barbs in the past, since China has flexed its muscles over the South China Sea ,Washington says is Beijing’s militarization of the area, by building military installations on artificial islands and reefs.
