Recently, Sino-US relations have been tense, with small military actions. The United States has sold arms to Taiwan and supported India with high-profile support on the Sino-Indian border issue. Yesterday, the US destroyer, the USS Mustin, broke into the territorial waters of Xisha and was expelled. A spokesman for the southern theater of the PLA stated that the US illegally broke into the territorial waters of Xisha in China, accusing it of provocative behavior and seriously infringed upon its sovereignty and security interests. It also proved that the US military was the source of the disaster that undermined peace and stability in the South China Sea.
According to media sources, Li Huamin, a spokesman for the southern theater of the PLA, said that the USS destroyer USS Mustin illegally broke into the territorial waters of Xisha, China yesterday. The sea and air forces in the southern theater conducted surveillance and verification of the US ships and warned them of the evacuation.
Li Huamin accused the provocative actions of the United States, which seriously violated China’s sovereignty and security interests, and was a naked act of hegemony. He pointed out that the current New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic is still spreading around the world. The United States ignores the safety of domestic people, does not focus on the prevention and control of the national epidemic, and does not do useful things for international anti-epidemic. However, it has sent warships to the South China Sea to show its might Provocations and troubles have fully exposed the hypocrisy nature of the US side’s assertion that the US military is the source of scourge that undermines peace and stability in the South China Sea.
Li Huamin emphasized that China has indisputable sovereignty over the islands in the South China Sea and its adjacent waters. The troops in the theater will always maintain a high degree of alert, take all necessary measures, resolutely perform their duties and missions, resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and security, and firmly maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea.
