BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday urged the United States to reflect on its acts on the South China Sea.
"There is indeed a country taking provocative actions in the South China Sea, but this country is not China," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily press briefing. "The U.S. mistaken comments have encouraged dangerous and provocative actions."
"We expect the United States to reflect on its acts. If it indeed expects the Pacific Ocean to be pacific, it should think what role it can play in maintaining regional peace and stability," Hua said.
Hua's comments came hours after the telephone conversation between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday morning.
