U.S. says concerned about China-Vietnam incident in S. China Sea

WASHINGTON, May 7 (Reuters) - The United States is concerned about dangerous conduct and intimidation in the South China Sea after reports of a Chinese vessel ramming Vietnamese ships, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki also said China’s deployment of an oil rig in a disputed part of the South China Sea was “provocative and unhelpful” to security in the region. (Writing by Bill Trott; Editing by Susan Heavey)
