BEIJING, Dec 19 (FAM) – Chinese military analysts said the US should put a halt to its spying activities in the South China Sea after the defense ministry announced China will return a US underwater drone seized in the waters.

“This is not the first time that we seized a US underwater drone in the South China Sea, but the one we seized on Thursday is new and more advanced than before and might carry valuable information just gathered in the South China Sea,” Li Jie, a Beijing-based naval expert told the Global Times on Sunday.
