Stop provocative action in SCS - US to China

Stop provocative action in SCS - US to China




US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim has slammed China for the test firing of its missiles in the South China Sea, saying such act by China was “provocative” and “inconsistent with international law and principles.”

Kim sad that the United States has been urging countries to refrain fro taking aggressive and unilateral actions that could imperil regional and global stability.


“We have stated our position very clear for quite some time now and I believe our friends in the Philippines agree that countries including China should refrain from such actions,” he said at the US Independence Day and Philippine-American Friendship Day.

In a report quoting an unnamed US official, international news agencies said China had test-fired anti-ship ballistic missiles from artificial islands in the South China Sea. “It’s clear that countries should behave according to international law and practices. In fact, China has indicated that it would stop militarization but obviously that has not happened,” he added.

Our very own Department of National Defense (DND) gave the statement that it would investigate the missile tests but admitted it had nothing in its hands but news reports from the media.
