BEIJING (Reuters) - China's foreign ministry said on Wednesday that any construction on a reef in the South China Sea also claimed by the Philippines is normal, since the reef is Chinese territory.
Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comment at a regular briefing, but she did not say whether any construction was underway.
The Philippine foreign ministry on Wednesday accused China of reclaiming land on a reef in the South China Sea and said it appeared to be building an airstrip.
