China has branded as "irresponsible" US comments that it is intimidating its neighbours with its military deployment in the South China Sea.

A top Chinese general said China had the right to deploy troops and weapons "on its own territory".

Earlier US Defence Secretary James Mattis said Beijing's actions called into question its broader goals.

Six countries have competing claims in the sea, but China has backed its own with island-building and patrols.

Gen. Mattis had made his critical comments at a security summit in Singapore.
