US Bombers Fly Over South China Sea

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told Reuters that there was nothing preventing the U.S. from navigating the area by either sea or air.

China's Defense Ministry said in a statement to Reuters that the country was monitoring "relevant countries' military activities next to China."
