An American unmanned underwater device seized by Chinese military in the waters of the South China Sea earlier this week was potentially "dangerous" to safe navigation in the area, China claimed, adding that the drone would be returned to the US after its investigation.
The Chinese Defense Ministry praised its navy's efforts in handling the incident "professionally," in what has been dubbed as one of the most serious episodes between the two nations' military in years.
"In order to prevent this device from posing a danger to the safe navigation of passing ships and personnel, the Chinese lifeboat adopted a professional and responsible attitude in investigating and verifying the device," Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said in a statement on Saturday, as quoted by AP.
The Chinese have also accused Washington of "military surveying" with its ships in their "presence," and demanded the US "stop such activities."
"China will continue to maintain vigilance against the relevant US activities and will take necessary measures to deal with them," the statement warned.
The device in question, which turned out to be an underwater drone apparently deployed by an American oceanographic vessel, would be transferred to the US "through appropriate means," the Defense Ministry spokesman said.
Later in the day, the Pentagon confirmed that an "understanding" has been "secured" with Beijing "through direct engagement with Chinese authorities." The drone would be returned to the US, Reuters reported, citing Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook.

The incident in the South China Sea that has sparked fears of further tensions between China and the US happened on Thursday. A Chinese navy lifeboat seized the unmanned device before the US survey ship, the Bowditch, who it belonged to, managed to do so some 100 miles off the coast at Subic Bay in Philippines, where the US has a naval base.
Claiming that the drone was "clearly marked" as being American property, another Pentagon spokesman, Jeff Davis, said on Friday the device cost some $150,000 and the US "would like it back."

On Saturday, US President-elect Donald Trump accused Beijing of "stealing" the device "in international waters," dubbing the act "unprecedented."
