China concerned about US’ push to “militarize S China Sea”

Chinese Defense Ministry Spokesman Yang Yujun said on Thursday China is greatly concerned about the United States’ push to “militarize the South China Sea region”.

Yang added that some high-ranking officials and officers of the U.S. have repeatedly made “irresponsible comments” on the South China Sea over the past few weeks, saying quote: “The United States has failed to say a single word on activities by the Philippines and other countries to carry out large-scale construction projects and military deployment for years on islands they stole from China. It is an absolute double-standard for the United States to criticize China’s legitimate activities in its own territories.”
