The United States has once again accused China of militarizing the South China Sea to intimidate and coerce neighbors. The Pentagon chief said Washington will compete vigorously with China’s actions if needed. The remarks come amid growing discord between China and the U-S over the disputed waters and islands. Last week, two U.S. Navy warships reportedly sailed near South China Sea islands over which China has territorial disputes with its neighboring countries. Beijing has dismissed the US official’s claims of militarization. It says military activities on the islands have been for self-defense purposes. Beijing has repeatedly warned the United States against sending warships to patrol the South China Sea.
