China dismisses US appeal to accept tribunal verdict on South China Sea

Beijing: Dismissing the US appeal to accept the verdict of the international tribunal on the disputed South China Sea as "delusional", China on Saturday said it can not be forced to accept the July 12 ruling.

"It can only be a delusion of relevant parties to impose the ruling on China through diplomatic pressurising and negative publicity campaign. We advise them to give up such futile attempts," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.
