Zhang Qiyue, spokeswoman of China’s Foreign Ministry, issued a protest over an alleged US naval vessel incursion in the Yellow Sea, which China considers part of its territory. Zhang said that US ship Bowditch has violated both international maritime law and China’s interests.

The Pentagon denied that there had been a collision involved in this incident. This story came at a sensitive time as Jiang Zeming, China’s President, is expected to visit the US later this October.
