US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned against coercion in the conflict-riven South China Sea and voiced hope that Beijing would find a peaceful resolution with Southeast Asian nations.

With tensions mounting in recent months between China and other claimants to the strategic waterway, Clinton on a visit to Indonesia declared anew that the United States found a "national interest" in ensuring freedom of navigation.

Clinton, who heads to Beijing today, did not criticise China directly but voiced clear unease over the fast-growing Asian power's recent establishment of a remote garrison in the sea hotly disputed among six states.
