WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said significant concerns remained over China’s policies in the South China Sea.

“I was clear ... that we have continued concerns about China’s activities and militarization in the South China Sea. We pressed China to live up to its past commitments in this area,” Pompeo told reporters at a news conference following diplomatic talks with Chinese officials.
