BEIJING, June 20 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Friday there is no need to over interpret the recent deployment of four oil rigs in the South China Sea.

The four oil rigs are in the waters off Guangdong and Hainan provinces, said spokeswoman Hua Chunying at a daily news briefing when asked whether the four rigs will be positioned into disputed waters.

The coordinates of the rigs can be found on the website of China's Maritime Safety Administration, said Hua. "There is no need to make a fuss about normal activities."

China's Maritime Safety Administration issued announcements this week about the drilling operations of oil rigs Nanhai 2, 4, 5 and 9.
