Chinese military demands US 'stop provocative actions' and 'restrict' naval operations in the South China Sea after USS John McCain enters waters in disputed area without permission

China has demanded the US 'control and restrict' its naval operations in the South China Sea after a US guided missile destroyer entered waters around the disputed Paracel Islands without permission.

A spokesperson for the Chinese People's Liberation Army accused the US of flexing its military muscle after the USS John McCain was spotted sailing into China's territorial waters on Friday.

'It is a naked navigational hegemony and military provocation,' Colonel Zhang Nandong said in a statement.
