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.
Wang Baodong, a spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, said China would "urge the Commission to take a rational approach towards China and stop issuing such politicized reports that are full of twisted facts and unwarranted allegation."
"We strongly believe China's trade and financial policies are in line with the international rules and China's obligations, and that they're productive for both China itself and the rest of the world, including the United States," he said.
