US Says China's Activity in South China Sea Won't Help Peace

May 1, 2015

The U.S. State Department said on Friday that China's activities building on reclaimed land in the South China Sea do not contribute to peace in the region, regardless of how the facilities are used.
 
China has said the United States and other countries would be welcome to use civilian facilities it is building for search and rescue and other purposes. State spokesman Jeff Rathke said the U.S. position is that this activity does not add to regional stability.
