China’s foreign ministry on Tuesday condemned a report from the US State Department about Beijing’s claims in the South China Sea, and has called on Washington to view and handle issues concerning these claims in an objective manner.

The State Department report, issued on Friday, said that China’s claims were both unclear and inconsistent. China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei said such a report went against Washington’s promises not to take sides in the dispute.

"The US report ignores the basic facts and international legal principles, and is contrary to the US’s promises not to take a position or sides in the South China Sea issue. It is not helpful in the resolution of the issue and to peace and stability in the South China Sea. We urge the US to abide by its promises, act and speak cautiously, objectively and fairly and so deal with relevant issues," said Hong Lei.
