China today warned the United States against taking sides in territorial disputes, as it prepared for a visit by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Clinton is currently on a tour of the Asia Pacific region during which she is expected to reaffirm calls for freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, where Southeast Asian nations have accused Beijing of growing assertiveness.

The United States is reinforcing its military presence in the Pacific, a move that analysts say is aimed at countering China's growing power in the region, and which has sparked concern in Beijing.

The Philippines, Vietnam and other nations claim islands in the South China Sea and have accused Beijing of a campaign of intimidation.
