"We hope that all parties can make concerted efforts to uphold the freedom of navigation and overflight enjoyed by all countries in relevant waters under the global law and stay committed to settling the issues and disputes between them through dialogue and consultation", she added.

Hua said the boundary between India and China was yet to be settled: "There are disputes over the eastern section of the China-India boundary".
