China slams US for 'hyping' up naval probe seizure
Beijing (AFP) –
Beijing Saturday slammed the US for "hyping" up its seizure of a naval probe in the South China Sea, saying it was "strongly opposed" to US reconnaissance operations.
"The hyping up from the American side is inappropriate and unhelpful to the swift resolution of the problem," China's defence ministry said in a statement.
