外文标题：China defends its South China Sea activities as ‘restrained’ after US raises concerns
BEIJING: China defended its activities in the South China Sea as restrained and responsible on Friday after the US intelligence chief called its expansion of outposts in the region an "aggressive" effort to assert sovereignty.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said the country's activities on shoals and in surrounding waters it claims are "reasonable, legitimate and legal" and that its attitude has been one of "restraint and responsibility."
China says it has historical claims to a huge swath of the South Sea China that overlaps the claims of several neighbors including Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines, and it objects to what it considers US meddling. The US says it has a national interest in the peaceful resolution of the disputes in the region.

Russia was restrained by USA post II world war. UK was restrained by France before that. Now it is the turn of India to restrain China

China has become a fat Sumo wrestler trying to occupy space more than its size. An Omnivore ?

China needs to behave like a responsible super power - if they are one indeed. Bullying all the neighboring countries is not the way to go.

We need Modiji's plan to succeed by making India very strong country both Economically and Militarily within next 15 years.
If India wins a war against China, India will be admitted to UNSC as a Permanent Member.

Dragon nation is more aggressive than before.
Chinese are not fools like Pakistanis. They know very well that any invasion like 1962 will be dangerous as India is well prepared to meet any war against them. China's greatest enemy is USA. Taiwan is a part of China and because of USA they are not able to recapture Taiwan.
