The US media reported recently that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army conducted military training in the South China Sea from Saturday (June 29) to Wednesday (July 3). During the test, it launched an anti-ship ballistic missile. The test was a Dongfeng 26 ballistic missile. The US Defense Department said on Wednesday that the situation is worrying and that China has violated its commitment not to militarize this controversial waterway.
US Defense Department spokesman Eastbourne said that although he could not speak on behalf of all “sovereign states” in the South China Sea, he affirmed that they also agreed that China’s actions were contrary to what it claimed to bring peace to the region, and it was obvious. It is to intimidate other sovereign voice countries.
