Beijing's warning comes after the new US administration vowed to defend its interests in the disputed waters. Chinese state media has stated that any US action in region would require Washington to "wage war."



China on Tuesday urged the new US administration of President Donald Trump to exercise extreme caution over the South China Sea, reiterating its claim to the disputed Spratly Islands.

Beijing's comments come a day after the Trump administration vowed to defend its interests and territories located in international waters, including those in the South China Sea.

"We urge the United States to respect the facts, speak and act cautiously to avoid harming the peace and stability of the South China Sea," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a news briefing in Beijing. "China has indisputable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters. The United States is not a party to the South China Sea issue."
US President Donald Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, on Monday warned China that "the US is going to make sure we protect our interests" in the South China Sea. "If those islands are, in fact, in international waters and not part of China proper, yeah, we'll make sure we defend international interests from being taken over by one country," he told reporters in Washington DC.


Spicer's comments signal a sharp departure from President Barack Obama's cautious approach to handling China's assertive claim to the disputed territories.
The Trump administration's pledge to defend its interests in the region sparked a stinging reaction in Chinese state media, which warned that such actions would require Washington to "wage war."
China's "Global Times" newspaper, an influential paper known for its hawkish rhetoric, urged China to strengthen its nuclear arsenal to "force the US to respect it."
