China Protests Sailing British Warships Near the Island in the South China Sea
Friday, 7 September 2018 11:21 WIB | GLOBAL |GlobalInggrischina

China accused Britain of "provocation" after the British Royal Navy warship sailed near islands claimed by Beijing in the South China Sea.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chun-ying said the British and international Chinese compilation of HMS Albion sailed near the island of Paracel on August 31.

"The Chinese Navy is legally sending and sending it to the place," Hua said in a briefing Thursday (6/9).

Vietnam and Taiwan also claim the islands, also known as Xisha in Chinese, and Hoang Sa in Vietnamese.

The Reuters news agency, which first reported this news on Thursday, said Albion's maneuver was an affirmation of freedom of shipping. The US Navy also sent ships and planes in the disputed area to conduct "Operation Freedom of Shipping."

Britain and France announced in June that they would send ships to the region for the same exercise.

China claims a large area of ‹‹the South China Sea, from the south to Malaysia, an area far greater than what is internationally recognized, namely a territorial boundary of 22 kilometers of sea.

China's claims are questioned by Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam.
