China takes a conciliatory tone

CHINESE Premier Li Keqiang has told the annual United Nations General Assembly that international maritime disputes should be resolved through talks.

China has drawn international condemnation for the militarisation of islands it has constructed in the South China Sea, where it is involved in several maritime disputes with countries in the region.

"Disputes concerning territory and maritime rights and interests should be re- solved through dialogue and negotiation. We need to expand common ground while shelving differences,” Mr Li (pictured) told the assembly.
