Even a small conflict in the South China sea could lead to a clash of Armed forces of the PRC and the United States, said the Chinese Admiral At Shanley. Presence of American warships in the 12-mile zone from the Islands of the Spratly archipelago, he considers provocative.
After the American military ships entered the 12-mile zone from the Chinese Spratly archipelago, the relations between the States quickly deteriorated, and the risk of armed conflict in the South China sea has increased several times. In order to avoid a conflict situation, the parties decided to negotiate.

"If the United States will continue to make such dangerous and provocative acts, the situation between front-line forces at sea and in the air greatly aggravated, even insignificant conflict could ignite a war," he was quoted by Reuters.
"I hope the American party cherishes good relations between the naval fleets of China and the United States, which were reached with difficulty, and later similar conflicts will be avoided," he added At Shanley. At the same time, the situation in the South China sea remains dangerous.

The United States did not rule out repetition of similar operations in the future. South China sea is considered to be a problematic point of departure for the PRC. There powers still disagree on the definition of borders with Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines. In the other regions of similar complexity are formed with Japan and South Korea.
