BEIJING, July 8 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday said it firmly opposed any foreign warships or planes entering the Yellow Sea as well as adjacent waters that were engaged in activities that would impact on its security and interests.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang made the remarks in response to a question on a scheduled joint naval drill between the United States and the Republic of Korea (ROK) at a regular news conference.

China has expressed serious concern to the relevant parties, he said, calling the relevant parties to exercise calm and refrain from doing things that might escalate tensions in the region.

Lee Bung-woo, the head of the press office at the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the ROK, said on Tuesday that the ROK-U.S. naval drill might be conducted after the UN Security Council takes action over the sinking of the ROK frigate Cheonan.
