The US destroyer appeared near the Paracel Islands, which caused displeasure of Beijing. However, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China acknowledged that the American ship did not break the water borders of China and it was in international waters.

Nevertheless, according to the State Council of China, staying the US destroyer close to the territories disputed by China, Vietnam and Taiwan will not contribute to stabilization.

Earlier Vietnam has claimed that even the presence of foreign military forces would normal, if it helped to solve territorial issues.
