US Vice President Joe Biden warned China on Thursday against escalating a dispute over an East China Sea air zone, adding that regional peace and stability were in Beijing's interests. China's controversial move last month to declare an "air defence identification zone" (ADIZ) -- which includes islands disputed with Japan -- has "caused significant apprehension in the region", Biden told a group of 60 American business leaders Thursday morning. "As China's economy grows, its stake in regional peace and stability will continue to grow as well, because it has so much more to lose," he added. "That's why China will bear increasing responsibility to contribute positively to peace and security."
