by Bill Gertz

China’s imposition of new restrictions on foreign fishing in the South China Sea is a “dangerous and provocative” measure, the State Department said on Thursday.

“The passing of these restrictions on other countries’ fishing activities in disputed portions of the South China Sea is a provocative and potentially dangerous act,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters.

“These regulations appear to apply to the maritime space within China’s so-called nine-dash line,” she said. “China has not offered any explanation or basis under international law for these extensive maritime claims.”
