China summons U.S. ambassador over South China Sea patrol

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui summoned U.S. Ambassador Max Baucus on Tuesday to protest against a U.S. naval patrol close to China’s man-made islands in the South China Sea, Chinese state television said.

Zhang called the U.S. patrol “extremely irresponsible” and urged the United States to cease actions that harm China’s sovereignty and security interests, China Central Television reported.
