China asserts jurisdiction over Taiwan Strait, shuns ‘international waters’ stance by US

Recommended Posts

China claims exclusive rights over the Taiwan Strait, a spokesman for the country’s Foreign Ministry said Monday, a statement that could set up a confrontation with U.S. warships that regularly transit the region.

“China has sovereignty, sovereign rights and jurisdiction over the Taiwan Strait. At the same time, it respects the lawful rights of other countries in relevant waters,” China Foreign Ministry spokesman Wenbin Wang said at a Monday news conference.
