|A top Chinese military officer recently inspected the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea cheap nike air max 90 white uk , the defense ministry said Friday, after the top US defense official visited an aircraft carrier transiting the disputed waters.
The coincidence of the two top military leaders' presence in the South China Sea showcased continuing tensions in the water, observers said.
Fan Changlong, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, was briefed on the construction projects on Nansha's islands and reefs.
China's Ministry of National Defense said on its official website that the construction projects are going smoothly. Those projects, including lighthouses, automatic weather stations nike air max 90 white trainers uk , oceanic observation centers and oceanic research facilities, will provide public services for the international community, according to the Xinhua News Agency. But these projects have been criticized by other claimants to the waters.
Five lighthouses have been completed, and four of them are now operational, the ministry added.
Fan also met with officers and soldiers stationed on the islands as well as construction workers.
"The rare official announcement of Fan's presence in the South China Sea has sent out a strong signal to the US, which intervenes in the disputes with some of China's neighboring countries, indicating the Chinese military's increasing determination to defend its maritime rights and interests as well as its readiness for possible escalating confrontations nike air max 90 white online uk ," Liu Feng, an expert in Chinese maritime issues, told the Global Times on Friday.
In particular, China will continue constructing necessary facilities for self-defense, if the US insists on increasing its military presence in the waters, Zhu Feng, director of the Collaborative Innovation Center of South China Sea Studies at Nanjing University nike air max 90 white wholesale uk , told the Global Times on Friday.
On the same day, US Defense Secretary Ash Carter flew to the nuclear-powered USS John C. Stennis for a two-hour visit, Reuters reported on Friday.
"What's new is not an American carrier in this region," Carter said aboard the Stennis, where he met US troops and observed flight operations. "What's new is the context of tension, which exists, which we want to reduce."
During Friday's visit nike air max 90 white black uk , Carter was accompanied by Philippine Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin.
"Following US-Philippines military exercises, Carter sailing in the water with an US aircraft carrier further demonstrated the US stance to step in the South China Sea disputes," Liu said.
Echoing Liu, Zhu said that the US is increasingly pressuring China with the threat of armed confrontation.
"If certain people from the US sincerely wish to peacefully resolve the issues, we hope that their actions would match their words and be genuinely conducive to resolving disputes," China's foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a daily briefing on Friday.
"Some US officials often replace freedom of navigation in the argument," Lu noted nike air max 90 white mens uk , saying the US side has failed to offer one single example where the safety and freedom of civil navigation in this region has been affected since the South China Sea disputes emerged over 40 years ago.
