China's 'bullying tactics' won't win respect of international community -Pentagon

WASHINGTON, Aug 26 (Reuters) - China is carrying out “coercive interference” in oil and gas activities in waters claimed by Vietnam, the Pentagon said on Monday, accusing Beijing of using bullying tactics.

“Recently, China resumed its coercive interference in Vietnam’s longstanding oil and gas activities in the South China Sea,” a Pentagon statement said.

“China will not win the trust of its neighbors nor the respect of the international community by maintaining its bullying tactics,” the statement added. (Reporting by Idrees Ali; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
