BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that U.S. criticism of the drone issue is unreasonable, after China returned an underwater U.S. drone taken by a Chinese naval vessel last week in the South China Sea.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comments at a daily news briefing in Beijing, adding she had not seen a Pentagon statement saying the drone was "unlawfully seized".
The Chinese Defence Ministry confirmed the handover in an earlier statement.
