China’s Defense Ministry expressed discontent at the actions of the United States, describing the illegal entry of the warship into Chinese territory waters as a “severe provocation.” Spokesman Yang Yujun said the US has turned a deaf ear to China’s warnings many times and is sticking to its agenda of militarizing the South China Sea. Yang said the US is trying to stir up regional tension and profit from it, and that it is necessary and reasonable for China to deploy defensive facilities on the Nansha islands. He also said China is determined to protect national sovereignty by strengthening naval and air force patrols and reinforcing defense capabilities in the region.
