JAKARTA, May 2 (Xinhua) -- China is a staunch force in maintaining peace and stability in the South China Sea, and it will continue its efforts in strengthening coordination and cooperation with the ASEAN to make contributions to the peace, stability, development and prosperity in the region, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here Thursday.

China has ample historical and jurisprudential evidences on its sovereignty over the Nansha islands and their adjacent seas, Wang stressed at a press conference after meeting with his Indonesian counterpart Marty Natalegawa.

Speaking of China's position on the South China Sea issues, Wang emphasized the Chinese government has clear, steadfast and consistent resolve in safeguarding state sovereignty and territorial integrity.

As a responsible power, Wang said, China will stick to its stands on the South China Sea issues, which can be reduced to devoting to maintaining the peace and stability in the South China Sea, effectively implementing the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC) in an all-round way, and peacefully resolving relevant disputes through friendly negotiations with sovereign states directly concerned.
