Obama warns against 'aggression' in South China Sea

US President Barack Obama walks to board Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, May 28, 2014West Point (United States) (AFP) – President Barack Obama warned Wednesday that the United States was ready to respond to China’s “aggression” but said that Washington should lead by example by ratifying a key treaty. In a wide-ranging speech on foreign policy to US military cadets at West Point, Obama said that the United States should shun isolationism and that its military must be prepared for crises. “Regional aggression that goes unchecked — whether it’s southern Ukraine, or the South China Sea, or anywhere else in the world — will ultimately impact our allies, and could draw in our military,” Obama said. “It’s a lot harder to call on China to resolve its maritime disputes under the Law of the Sea Convention when the United States Senate has refused to ratify it — despite the repeated insistence of our top military leaders that the treaty advances our national security,” Obama said.
