China hits back at US in row over South China Sea

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying alluded to the US when she blamed “some countries” for flexing “their military muscles again and again” in the South China Sea.

Last week, US officials said they were considering sailing warships in an area around the Spratly island chain which China claims as territory.

It has sparked tit-for-tat warnings between the two powers.
