US Says China Is Building A “Great Wall Of Self-Isolation”

The back and forth between the US and China continues, as US defense secretary Ash Carter said today at the 15th Asia Security Summit in Singapore that China risks isolating itself with its actions in the South China Sea.


Carter revealed as much when he said the US wouldn’t withdraw because “this region, which is home to nearly half the world’s population and nearly half the global economy, remains the most consequential for America’s own security and prosperity.

In response, China said that now is a time of cooperation and not to immediately take sides as the US is doing, furthermore, that the US shouldn’t be making remarks about territorial sovereignty issues within a region that it isn’t even a part of.
