China to U.S.: Stop Ships, Jets to South China Sea

The Straits Times reports that “China has urged the United States to stop sending ships and planes to the South China Sea and to respect its core interests, amid a domestic debate on whether a US bomber had indeed flown unintentionally near a Chinese-built artificial island.”  

“‘The world is facing multifaceted challenges and needs multi-party cooperation to handle that,’ Foreign Minister Wang Yi told US Secretary of State John Kerry in a phone call on Sunday.”  

“‘While the US is seeking Chinese cooperation, it also should respect China’s core interests and major concerns, he said.”
