In response, the PLA organized naval and air forces to track, verify, identify, and warn the ships away, noted Li.
"The Chinese military is determined to safeguard national sovereignty and security as well as maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea, no matter what tricks are played by U.S. ships," added the spokesperson.
