"McCain" illegally entered the waters near the reef and conducted a so-called "freedom of navigation operation" on Thursday without permission of the Chinese government, Xinhua quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang as saying.

Washington is dependent on Beijing to rein in the belligerent North Korea.

"We told them we are a usa [ship] conducting routine operations in worldwide waters".

The ship sailed within six miles of the man-made Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands, Stars and Stripes reported citing an anonymous US Navy official.

The ruling invalidated Beijing's claim to sovereignty over large swaths of the South China Sea.

The reef is part of the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, which is the scene of rival claims between China and neighbouring countries. It's true in the South China Sea.

"All operations are conducted in accordance with worldwide law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever global law allows", he said.

"Beijing can now deploy military assets, including combat aircraft and mobile missile launchers, to the Spratly Islands at any time", the US-based think tank had said in June.

The Guardian reported Friday a us official said the Chinese frigate sent radio warning at least 10 times to the USS McCain.

"They happen off the coast of Canada" and "in the waters off shore of our major allies, friends, partners all around the world", she said.

It is the third time this year that U.S. ships traveled within 12 nautical miles of land claimed by China, the report said. About 45 islands are occupied by relatively small numbers of military forces from China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam.

"But provocative actions by the U.S. like this one have seriously harmed mutual strategic trust, and caused difficulties and obstacles in developing military-to-military relations".

The US administration has been prodding China to work with North Korea through its diplomatic channels to tone down Kim's nuclear ambitions but Pentagon officials, including President Trump have felt increasingly frustrated with Chinese officials. "The provocations of the USA would compel China to take measures to increase its defense capabilities buildups".

Now it seems China's patience with the territorial row is running out.
