US Congressmen condemns China's escaltion in the East Sea

US Congressmen J. Randy Forbes, Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee and Chairman of the Congressional China Caucus, on May 28 issued a statement condemning China’s continued escalation in the East Sea.
China’s continued escalation with Vietnam in the East Sea, including actions that have led to the sinking of a Vietnamese fishing vessel in recent days, has only reinforced the perception that “Beijing is willing to resort to military coercion to achieve its political objectives”, the statement said. 
The United States should never accept the resolution of territorial disputes in the Asia-Pacific by military force or other forms of coercion, it added.
