BEIJING: China aims to turn some of the islands in the disputed South China Sea into Maldives-style resorts for weddings with new developments on areas that don’t need a military presence, a state-run newspaper quoted a top official on Friday as saying. China began tourist cruises to the Sea on a trial basis in 2013, as part of efforts to cement its claims by boosting the civilian presence there.
