WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States urges all parties claiming the Spratly islands in the South China Sea to stop reclaiming land and building new facilities on the disputed territories, US National Security Advisor Susan Rice stated on Monday.

“We call upon all claimants to reciprocally halt land reclamation, construction of new facilities and militarization of outposts on disputed territories,” she said.

Rice also urged China and the member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to create a code of conduct in the South China Sea.
