US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to Beijing increases territorial tensions

Hillary Clinton’s visit to the Chinese capital spiked tensions over territorial disputes between the Asian power and the countries around its coastline including Vietnam, Japan, and the Philippines.

Last Monday while the US Secretary of State was in Indonesia, she reiterated that the purpose of her visit is for the region to resolve disagreements in a peaceful manner.

Beijing however reacted angrily to US involvement accusing Clinton’s office of “unfounded accusations”.
