Secretary Kerry Delivers Remarks on the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, November 21, 2013
Secretary of State John Kerry strongly criticized a controversial air defense identification zone announced by China on Saturday that includes a chain of disputed islands claimed by both China and Japan. “The United States is deeply concerned about China's announcement that they've established an 'East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone,'" Kerry said in the statement on Saturday. “We have urged China to exercise caution and restraint, and we are consulting with Japan and other affected parties, throughout the region,” Kerry said. Freedom of overflight and other internationally lawful uses of sea and airspace are essential to prosperity, stability, and security in the Pacific.
