BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Foreign Ministry said on Friday it was against parties entering territorial waters in the name of freedom of navigation, as the United States is considering sailing warships close to China's artificial islands in the South China Sea.

Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comment at a regular news briefing.
