The White House said on Thursday that the air defense zone declared by China over parts of the East China Sea is provocative and not consistent with the behavior of a major power, and again urged Beijing not to implement it. White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters, "We, the United States, do not recognize and we do not accept it, and will not change the way the United States conducts military operations in the region."
