USA provoking us - China warns

China is protesting the alleged incursion of a U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane into a no-fly zone imposed during live-fire military exercises in the country's north.

"The trespass severely affected China's normal exercises and training activities, and violated the rules of behavior for air and maritime safety between China and the United States, as well as relevant global practices", Wu said.

According to Wu, the move severely encroached on China's sovereignty, heavily interrupted China's ordinary military operations and could easily cause misjudgment and even result in accidents.

The statement said the exercises were being staged by China's Northern Theater Command but gave no details as to their exact time and place.

"This was a naked act of provocation", the ministry said, quoting spokesperson Wu Qian.

'This is China's response to the potential risks brought by the increasingly frequent incoming USA warplanes and military vessels in the South China Sea, ' the source said to the Hong Kong-based newspaper.

"China firmly opposes such provocative actions and has lodged solemn representations with the U.S. side".

Hainan Maritime Safety Administration announced on August 23 the Chinese army would perform drills on southeastern Hainan Island and Vietnam's Hoang Sa Islands from August 24 to 29.

Taiwan has complained that China has stepped up threatening military activities in recent months near the island which Beijing considers its own.

In a related statement, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said the U.S. "will begin imposing visa restrictions on People's Republic of China individuals responsible for, or complicit in, either the large-scale reclamation, construction, or militarisation of disputed outposts in the South China Sea, or the PRC's use of coercion against South-east Asian claimants to inhibit their access to offshore resources".

"Operations in the South China Sea continue to demonstrate enduring US commitment to allies and partners, and a cooperative approach to regional stability and freedom of the seas", the release said.

The high-altitude reconnaissance planes were flown over China, the former Soviet Union and other countries in the Communist bloc during the Cold War and upgraded versions to continue to support missions in Asia and elsewhere.

China is also holding naval drills in the South China Sea, which it claims virtually in its entirety but over which five other governments also exercise claims.

Beijing's anger comes as U.S. and Chinese relations have deteriorated to historic lows, with confrontations simmering on trade, military and political matters.
