South China Sea ruling has no impact on territorial sovereignty: Chinese Premier

Ulan Bator (Mongolia): Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Saturday said the South China Sea arbitration ruling will have no impact on Beijing's territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests, Xinhua news agency reported. He made the remarks at the ongoing 11th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit in the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator.
