Chinese media criticized the US for “ceaseless provocations” following the warning of US Defense Secretary Ash Carter to Beijing that Washington will continue to send its military where international law allows, including the artificial islands of China in West Philippine Sea.
The Global Times, which is close to China’s ruling Communist party, condemned Washington’s “ceaseless provocations and coercion.”
“China mustn’t tolerate rampant US violations of China’s adjacent waters and the skies over those expanding islands,” it said, adding that its military should “be ready to launch countermeasures according to Washington’s level of provocation,” it added.
“If the US encroaches on China’s core interests, the Chinese military will stand up and use force to stop it,” the paper warned.
China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters earlier that “certain countries have been flexing military muscles in the South China Sea over recent period of times”.
“That is the biggest cause of ‘militarisation’ in the South China Sea,” she added.
What is there to expect with China living on their forged bubble with their fictitious 9-line-territory? They refused to participate in The Hague, and now they are complaining when other countries start flexing their muscles.
We can only wonder what goes in their mind of their fantasy falsifications…
