Allies concerned at China's maritime moves

Then-deputy national security advisor Tony Blinken speaks at the White House on July 28, 2014 in Washington, DCUS, Japanese and South Korean diplomats Thursday renewed concerns about moves by China to stake its claim to disputed seas and urged Beijing to preserve freedom of navigation in the key waterways. Deputy US Secretary Tony Blinken repeated America’s position that all competing claims in the South and East China Seas should be dealt with according to the rule of law. Countries should “not take unilateral actions,” he stressed, after Beijing’s efforts to stake its claim to most of the South China Sea were high on the agenda for trilateral and bilateral talks with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts. “We have consensus among us that the peaceful and harmonious rise of China we all welcome,” said Japanese Vice Foreign Minister Akitaka Saiki.
