Beijing has voiced "resolute opposition against infringement of China's sovereignty and security by any country in any form".

The Foreign Ministry spelled out China's stance after the Pentagon said that US-Philippine joint patrols in the South China Sea will occur "regularly".

US Defense Secretary Ash Carter confirmed on Thursday that the US and the Philippines had already conducted such patrols.
