China enacts 'emergency mechanisms' after Vietnam protests

BEIJING (Reuters) - China called Vietnam a "provocateur" on Tuesday and expressed concern after thousands rampaged in industrial zones in the country's south following protests against Chinese oil drilling in a disputed part of the South China Sea.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters at a daily press briefing that China had made representations to Vietnam and enacted unspecified emergency mechanisms to provide security to Chinese companies.
