China is warning the United States to stay out of its dispute with five other nations over territorial rights in the South China Sea, an energy-rich region and major shipping route in Southeast Asia.
The Obama administration called on China Wednesday to rein in North Korea after its artillery attack on a South Korean island, as the Pentagon ordered the USS George Washington aircraft carrier strike group to the Yellow Sea for naval exercises with South Korean forces.
Chinese security forces used "disproportionate force" and acted with "deliberate brutality" in crushing a protest in Tibet in 2008, according to an international human rights group.
Chinese officials said yesterday the focus of relief work after the devastating May 12 earthquake in the country's Sichuan province is shifting from search efforts to helping injured and homeless quake victims.
Chinese Embassy spokesman Wang Baodong said the rule of law requires all parties — government agencies, social organizations and individuals — to "conduct business within the framework of the Chinese Constitution and relevant laws."
"There's of course room for improvement, and there's the phenomenon of failure to observe the law and miscarriages of justice," he said, "but China's determination to push forward the process of Chinese characterized democracy and rule of law is unswerving."
