As Beijing launches new maritime exercises, it has warned that future US naval patrols through the region could have a bad result.

In recent months, the Pentagon has launched a number of provocative “freedom of navigation” patrols within the 12-mile territorial limit of China’s land-reclamation projects in the Spratly archipelago.

During a closed-door forum on Monday, Sun Jianguo, admiral and deputy chief of the Joint Staff Department of China’s Central Military Commission, stressed that freedom of navigation has never been threatened, but added that further acts of military aggression could have dire consequences.

“When has freedom of navigation in the South China Sea ever been affected? It has not, whether in the past or now, and in the future there won’t be a problem as long as nobody plays tricks,” he said.
