In his remarks, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Sun Weidong said at present, the biggest security challenge in the South China Sea comes from outside the region.

Sun Weidong said US-led forces are promoting military deployment and actions in the South China Sea, inciting and intensifying maritime disputes and damaging the legitimate rights and interests of coastal countries.
