A senior Chinese general vowed Saturday that China's man-made islands in the South China Sea will not impact freedom of navigation, but were meant instead to aid shipping through the disputed waterway.

General Fan Changlong, a vice chairman in China's powerful Central Military Commission, made the comments at a regional forum in the Chinese capital, where Southeast Asian defense ministers have gathered.

"We will never recklessly resort to the use of force, even on issues of sovereignty, and have done our utmost to avoid unexpected conflicts," said the general in a speech at the Xiangshan Forum.

"(The islands) will not affect freedom of navigation in the South China Sea," he added. "Instead, they will enable us to provide better public services to aid navigation and production."

As evidence of alleged peaceful intentions, Fan pointed to the recent construction of two lighthouses on the artificial islands. The lighthouses, he said, "have already begun to provide navigation services to all nations."

The islands, as well as the apparent military dimension of construction on them, has further raised tensions in the South China Sea, where several Southeast Asian countries have competing claims with China.

Satellite images suggest China has built airstrips long enough to handle warplanes, as well as harbors and state-of-the-art radar and weapons-tracking facilities on the islands.

The U.S. views the island-building as destabilizing and has called on China to stop the projects. Pentagon officials are also threatening to sail military ships within the 22-kilometer territorial zones surrounding the islands.

The move, billed by U.S. officials as a "freedom of navigation operation," would be seen by many as a direct challenge to China's sovereignty claims. China has repeatedly warned the U.S. against conducting the missions.

Admiral John Richardson, the U.S. chief of naval operations, said Thursday the operation would be consistent with international law.

"I don't see how this can be interpreted as provocative or anything. They are just steaming in international waters," Richardson told reporters in Tokyo. "So I think from our standpoint, we would see these as part of our normal business as a global navy."

The Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei all have overlapping claims with China in the South China Sea, a resource-rich area through which $5 trillion worth of goods move across each year.

The U.S. says it does not take a position on the territorial disputes, but has condemned what it sees as China's increasingly aggressive behavior toward its neighbors in the area.

Washington has also developed closer military ties with many Asian countries, including some that have competing territorial claims with China.
