A top US diplomat has called on China to clarify or adjust its territorial claims in the South China Sea in accordance with international law.

Daniel Russel, assistant secretary of state for East Asia, criticised Beijing's so-called "nine-dash line" that outlines its claims.

He said there were "growing concerns" over China's "pattern of behaviour".

Tensions are already high over China's imposition of an air defence zone above disputed islands in the East China Sea.
