MetadataShow full item record
The White House warned China on Thursday of consequences over its growing militarization in the South China Sea. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the comment when asked about US intelligence reports that there is a high probability that China’s military has deployed missiles in the Spratly islands, parts of which are within Philippine territory. “We’re well aware of China’s militarization of the South China Sea,” Sanders said, adding the United States has “raised concerns” with the Chinese over this.“There will be near-term and long-term consequences, and we’ll certainly keep you up to date,” she said. Sanders did not say what the consequences might be.
