Non-militarization of the South China Sea is not the responsibility of China alone, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday in Washington, urging the United States to refrain from close-up military reconnaissance in the region.

At a joint news conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry after their talk, Wang said, "China, the United States and the ASEAN countries have all committed to non-militarization. Non-militarization is not the responsibility of one party alone. It's something that we share."

Wang is visiting the US from Tuesday to Thursday. The trip comes as recent Chinese military deployments on some of its islands are making headlines in international media.
