China says U.S. "irresponsible" over South China Sea ADIZ

BEIJING, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- Some U.S. officials are "extremely irresponsible" to accuse China over a so-called plan to set up an Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) over the South China Sea, a spokesman said on Friday.
"Some U.S. diplomats have made groundless accusations against China without verifying the claim," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a daily news briefing.
Last week, Japan's daily newspaper Asahi Shimbun reported that China had drafted proposals for an ADIZ over the South China Sea.
Danny Russel, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, repeated warnings to China not to impose an ADIZ, which would call on planes to report to Beijing, over the South China Sea.

Australia repeats China air zone concerns after rebuke

BEIJING: Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop defied a stern rebuke from Beijing on Saturday to repeat concerns that China's recently announced air defence zone has increased regional tensions.

"Australia is concerned about peace and stability in our region, and we don't want to see any escalation of tensions, we want to see a de-escalation," she told reporters in Beijing when asked about Australia's stance on China's Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ).

Her remarks came after China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Friday reproached Bishop for Australia's critical stance on the ADIZ, which China announced last month and covers islands in the East China Sea which are claimed by Beijing and Tokyo.
