So, per usual, the US has angered another country. The activation of China's ballistic missile, DF-26, is believed to be a direct response to a US warship trespassing into China's territorial waters off the Xisha Islands (Paracel Islands) in the South China Sea on Monday. The move was conducted by USS McCampbell destroyer.
A statement from the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs was given. They said, "We urge the United States to immediately cease this kind of provocation," the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in response which accused the US of having "gravely infringed upon China’s sovereignty."
"We will be on high alert and will closely monitor the air and sea situation to strongly defend our sovereignty and security."
