China warns US: stay out of maritime spat

China on Wednesday warned the United States to stay out of the deepening territorial spat in the South China Sea and accused other countries in the region of provocation, a report said.

Vice foreign minister Cui Tiankai said neighbouring countries, including Vietnam, were responsible for recent incidents in the disputed waters and dismissed calls for Washington to play a greater role in resolving tensions .

"I believe some countries now are playing with fire. 
And I hope the US won't be burned by this fire,"
- Cui Tiankai
