Navigation freedom not implying wanton activities in South China Sea: FM

(Xinhua)    11:12, March 08, 2016

BEIJING, March 8 -- Navigation freedom in the South China Seadoes not imply wanton activities, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday.

China hopes to secure freedom of navigation, Wang said at a press conference on the sidelines of the ongoing session of the National People's Congress.

However, he said, "Freedom of navigation does not imply doing whatever you want."

Thanks to joint efforts made by China and other countries in the region, the South China Sea remains among the world's safest and freest sail lanes, he said.

Any attempts to disturb the South China Sea and destabilize Asia would not be allowed by China and most other countries in the region, he said.
