Obama draws red line on water… US calls for land reclamation ‘halt’ in South China Sea

The US has called for an “immediate and lasting halt” to land reclamation in disputed areas of the South China Sea.

US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter told the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore that China’s actions in the area were “out of step” with international rules.

China claims almost the whole of the South China Sea, resulting in overlapping claims with its neighbours.

Chinese officials have described US remarks on the South China Sea as “groundless and not constructive”.
