Trump decries threats to sovereignty in Ukraine, S. China Sea


US President Donald Trump on Tuesday decried threats to sovereignty in Ukraine and the South China Sea.

In his maiden speech to the UN General Assembly, Trump did not explicitly mention Russia or China, but the comment was clearly aimed at Moscow and Beijing.

"We must reject threats to sovereignty from the Ukraine to the South China Sea," Trump said. "We must uphold respect for law, respect for borders, and respect for culture, and the peaceful engagement these allow."
