“India and the US should not disturb peace in the South China Sea and play a constructive role in the disputes,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.
“With concerted efforts of China and ASEAN countries, the situation there is cooling down. We hope other countries especially non-regional countries can respect the efforts by the non-regional countries to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea and play a constructive role in this regard,” Geng Shuang said.
It’s not the first time that China has warned India to stay from the disputed region. China claims almost all of the South China Sea which is the bone of contention as other countries such as Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Brunei and Vietnam also have their counter claims.
