Xinhua: Guard Against Foreign Forces in South China Sea

Xinhua published an editorial critical of U.S. Secretary of State Clinton’s remarks at the ASEAN Regional Forum Foreign Ministers Meeting about U.S. interests regarding the disputed South China Sea Islands.  

“These remarks show the interest by foreign forces in intervening in the South China Sea. The underlying motives and the possible impact thereof are worth our attention and alert (toward) the neighboring countries in the South China Sea.”

The editorial warns that whenever there are territorial disputes, western forces will first incite discord in the region and then pose as arbitrators to divide and rule the disputing countries.
