China reiterated it has indisputable sovereignty over islands in the South China Sea on Tuesday, a day after it unveiled a tourism development plan involving the islands.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said at a regular press briefing that China's sovereignty over the islands in the South China Sea, including the Xisha and Nansha islands, is indisputable.

The State Council announced Monday a guideline on the development of tourism in the southern island province of Hainan, which says tourism will be promoted on the Xisha Islands and some uninhabited islands.
