Beijing said on Monday it was "startled" by Manila's recent statement that it would use a warship grounded in Chinese territory as "a permanent Philippine government installation".

"The Chinese government's attitude on maintaining the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity is unwavering. We will never tolerate the Philippines' illegal occupation of the Ren'ai Reef in any form," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.

"China is on high alert for the Philippines' possibly taking more provocative moves in the South China Sea. The Philippines must accept responsibility for the consequences of what will happen," he said.
