TOKYO (AP) — A U.S. diplomat in Tokyo on Tuesday slammed China’s “increasingly hostile maritime actions” as a threat to the security of waterways in the resource-rich Indo-Pacific, as U.S. United seek to strengthen security cooperation with their allies, Japan and the Philippines.
US Deputy Chief of Mission Raymond Greene said Beijing’s disregard for international law and heavy-handed actions were aimed at increasing its control over the region. “Specifically, the People’s Republic of China’s increasingly hostile maritime actions threaten the security of our waterways,” he told a news conference ahead of a meeting of officials from the three countries.
