MetadataShow full item record
The Chinese and US navies are set to hold high-level talks over tensions in the South China Sea after a US warship challenged Beijing's territorial assertiveness in the disputed waterway this week. The US chief of naval operations Admiral John Richardson and his Chinese counterpart Admiral Wu Shengli would hold an hour long video teleconference on Thursday (US time), a US official said. Beijing rebuked Washington for sending a guided missile destroyer within 12 nautical miles of one of China's man-made islands in the Spratly archipelago on Tuesday, saying it had tracked and warned the USS Lassen and called in the US ambassador to protest.
