But when asked to respond to comments from President Trump that if "he was re-elected, America would no longer rely on China, and American businesses would leave China", Mr Lijian urged the United States to "not make an issue out of China in its election". The missiles impacted in the northern reaches of the South China Sea concerning Hainan Island and the Paracel Islands, recognized as the Xisha Islands in China, the official mentioned.

"The U.S. Navy exercised navigational hegemony in the name of freedom of navigation, seriously undermined China's sovereignty and security interests, and severely sabotaged the worldwide navigation order in the South China Sea", Senior Colonel Li Huamin, a spokesperson for the PLA Southern Theater Command, was quoted as saying by Global Times Friday.

During the regular Chinese Foreign Ministry press conference, spokesman Zhao Lijian said "relevant training activities" conducted in the South China Sea were "routine".

Beijing has overlapping claims with Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Taiwan in the South China Sea, where it has been building military installations on disputed reefs and outcroppings to assert its sovereignty.

"We urge the US to look at China and bilateral relations in an objective and rational light, work with us towards the same goal, manage differences, promote cooperation and bring China-US relations back onto the right track of coordination, cooperation and stability". Commenting on the significance of this show of strength, a former director of operations at the U.S. Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center had told CNN: "The different scale of demonstrated combat power between the People Liberation Army Navy's and United States Navy's exercises will be noticeable. USS Mustin was not "expelled" from any nation's territory", U.S. Pacific Fleet spokesman Lt. James Adams told Newsweek on Friday.

According to South China Morning Post daily, the Chinese army launched two missiles including an "aircraft-carrier killer" apparently as a warning signal to the U.S. forces in the South China Sea, where they have been conducting military drills since August 24.

All three claimants require either permission or advance notification before a military vessel or warship engages in "innocent passage" through the territorial sea.

China's military test-fired two missiles into the South China Sea, including a "carrier killer" military analysts suggest might have been developed to attack USA forces, a newspaper reported Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020.

The missiles, in turn, were launched the day after Beijing complained about a U.S. Air Force U-2 reconnaissance plane allegedly violating the airspace near a PLA exercise.

"The trespass severely impacted China's standard routines and schooling things to do, and violated the rules of actions for air and maritime basic safety in between China and the United States, as perfectly as related global procedures", Wu, the Defense Ministry spokesperson, mentioned.

The U.S. continues to run freedom of navigation runs (FONOPS) to counter China's military strength.

"The US has, ever since the Cold War, been pursuing a policy of dominating the world, being able to dictate to other countries what they can or can't do, overthrowing governments around the world and trying to become the sole superpower to the point where they can dictate anything and everything to any country they want to, friendly or not friendly", Wong explained.
