China Warns “What We Do Or Don’t Do [In The South China Sea] Is Up To Us, Noone Else”

China Warns “What We Do Or Don’t Do [In The South China Sea] Is Up To Us, Noone Else” (ZeroHedge, Aug 4, 2014):

Having spied on RIMPAC for a week or two, it appears the Chinese imperialist rhetoric is rising once again. China can build whatever it wants on its islands in the South China Sea, Reuters reports a senior Chinese official said on Monday, rejecting proposals ahead of a key regional meeting to freeze any activity that may raise tensions in disputed waters there: “what China does or doesn’t do is up to the Chinese government. Nobody can change the government’s position.” Of course, after showing what is at stake here, it should hardly be surprising that China is pushing back again. But don’t worry, China’s Ocean Affairs minister added “trust in us Asian people to use Asian means and wisdom to resolve our own problems.”
