China Expanding Reclamation in South China Sea
 
01:44
.An investigation conducted by the Philippine military has shed light on the expansion of China's reclamation projects in disputed waters in the South China Sea. NHK has obtained reconnaissance photos taken by the Philippine military near the Spratly Islands earlier this year. The waters are claimed by China, the Philippines, and other parties. The photos show that China has begun reclaiming 2 new locations at the Spratly Islands -- one at Mischief Reef, another at Subi Reef. Sources in the Philippine military say that together with 5 locations where China began reclaiming last year, at least one-square-kilometer waters in 7 locations have already been developed. At Fiery Cross Reef, long strips of shoal that were underwater in September have been totally reclaimed. The Philippine military says the construction of a runway is underway on the newly reclaimed land, stretching 3 kilometers in length and 200 to 600 meters in width. On Gaven Reef, Johnson Reef, and 2 other locations, several large complexes, such as a 6-story building, are being rapidly constructed. Judging from the types of the facilities and recent Chinese maritime activities in the waters nearby, the sources say China's reclamation projects could be used for military purposes. They say China may begin opening these facilities year's end. The Chinese government has said the development is conducted in waters under Chinese control, but the claim is meeting resistance from the Philippines, Vietnam, and other parties. US officials have also expressed their concerns. China's reclamation projects will likely deepen the tensions between China and other parties involved.

China to expand land reclamation activities in South China Sea, say experts SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z Source video: http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/china-to-expand-land-reclamation-activities-in-south-china-sea-say-experts G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BEIJING - China is focused on the establishment of civil infrastructure on islands in the South China Sea rather than military installations, and will expand land reclamation activities, according to Chinese experts. "Most of the construction on islands in the South China Sea was completed in 2015 and the pace then slowed. Civilian facility construction is the major focus of the South China Sea islands building and the portion of defence deployment is relatively small," Mr Chen Xiangmiao, a research fellow at the National Institute for the South China Sea, told the Global Times on Monday (Feb 5). Mr Chen said some of the islands were likely to be expanded in future through more dredgging. He also noted that the easing of tensions between China and South-east Asian countries such as the Philippines had provided a golden opportunity for China to upgrade these areas. According to another expert, Dr Zhuang Guotu, the head of Xiamen University's Southeast Asian Studies Centre, foreign media was hyping China's construction in the South China Sea. "China has the right to build whatever it needs within its territory," Dr Zhuang said, adding that China's military deployments in the South China Sea were to defend its security and interests, rather than military expansion. Both Dr Zhuang and Mr Chen warned that the US was the biggest threat to stability in the South China Sea . "The US, Australia, Japan and other allies will constantly provoke China over this issue and that will incite other neighbouring South China Sea countries to do the same," Dr Zhuang said. US guided missile destroyer USS Hopper came within 12 nautical miles of Scarborough Shoal, also known as Huangyan Island, in January, according to reports. China's South China Sea construction projects covered about 290,000 square metres in 2017, according to a report released in December on a website run by the Nation... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's why so many nations want to control the South China Sea — and what China wants to do
 
01:59
The South China Sea plays an outsized role in international commerce and politics. A litany of regional and global powers crave its natural resources as well as the benefits that come with controlling on of the world's most important shipping lanes. China has aggressively pursued control over the Spratley Islands — an archipelago of rocks, reefs and cays that sit in the middle of the sea. Malaysia, Brunei, The Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan have staked their own claims to the area, but it's really the United States Navy that stands in the way of China. The Seventh Fleet, however, cannot keep China from reclaiming land on the islands it controls. Professor Dave Denoon, director of the NYU Center on US-China Relations explains how the situation arose and how it will likely play out in upcoming years. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

China Has Nearly Conquered The South China Sea
 
07:59
This video shows you that China Has Nearly Conquered The South China Sea. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s rapprochement with China, a gambit that has traded security concessions for economic and investment largesse, has once again been undermined by developments in the South China Sea. Undisclosed sources, most likely from the Philippine defense establishment, gave the Philippine Daily Inquirer a new cache of satellite images which show China has virtually completed its militarization of the artificially-created islands it controls in the contested maritime area. The high-resolution photos were published on the liberal newspaper’s website on Monday. Last year, defense establishment sources handed satellite imagery of suspicious Chinese activity close to Philippine-controlled Thitu Island, also in the South China Sea, to members of the opposition and the media. Those photos, too, raised questions about Duterte’s accommodation with China. The latest aerial footage shows a sprawling network of runways, advanced weaponries and storage facilities across Philippine-claimed land features in the Spratly Islands, namely on the Fiery Cross, Cuerteron, Gaven, Johnson South, Mischief, Subi and McKennan reefs. As one prominent Chinese academic from Xiamen University’s Southeast Asian Studies Center told the ultra-nationalist Global Times newspaper, “China has the right to build whatever it needs within its territory” in the South China Sea. Earlier this year, Beijing openly celebrated its expanding military footprint across disputed land features, having reclaimed as much as 290 square meters to augment its already large artificial islands. China admitted that it has deployed advanced radar systems to the area, a supposedly reasonable move for defensive purposes. The news of Chinese fait accompli in militarizing the features immediately unlashed a firestorm in the Philippines, with prominent statesmen prodding the government to take a tougher stance. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, a leading national voice on South China Sea issues, lambasted the Duterte administration’s “policy of appeasement”, which has further “embolden[ed] China to further militarize its artificial islands in the Spratlys.” “Has the Philippines been sold? It’s worrisome to see that China’s military bases are almost complete in the [South China Sea],” lamented Senator Benigno Aquino IV, a relative of former president Aquino and a leading voice of opposition. “While their warships are in our seas, we continue to give in to their whims and, all the while, we are kept in the dark as to our government’s dealings with China,” the senator complained. Previous President Benigno Aquino III confronted China and drew closer to the US for strategic assurances. Congressman Carlos Isagani Zarate, member of the left-leaning bloc in the lower house of Congress, lambasted the “inaction and deafening silence” of the Duterte administration. He called on the government to end its “see-no-evil; speak-no-evil; hear-no-evil” approach to what he views as “blatant violation of our sovereignty” by China. china sea, china south, china southern, china southern airlines, chinese airlines, chinese southern airlines, india us, india us relations, india usa, indo us, indo us relations, latest news in south china sea, south china, south china sea, south china sea conflict, south china sea dispute, south china sea news, south chinese sea, us india relations, usa to india ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

China has rejected US criticism of its reclamation works in the South China Sea. The deputy chief of the army's general staff department says China is exercising its sovereignty in the region and fulfilling international responsibilities. Sun Jian-guo noted that the construction has never been an issue with the freedom of navigation. The United States has called on Beijing to halt reclamation works and island building in the disputed waters, saying they're out of step with international rules. China claims almost the whole of the sea but its neighbors including the Philippines and Malaysia have overlapping claims. The South China Sea is believed to be home to huge oil and gas reserves and is a major global shipping route.

China: South China Sea Reclamation Halted

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Beijing has stopped its island building activities in the disputed territory
HOW CHINA HAS USED THE NORTH KOREAN CRISIS TO FURTHER ITS CAUSE IN SOUTH CHINA SEA?
 
08:15
INTRODUCTION World’s and America’s focus has been on North Korea, and rightly so. Tensions over China's island-building in the South China Sea may have eased in the past year, but Beijing has kept busy. New satellite imagery shows China has built infrastructure covering 72 acres (28 hectares) in the Spratly and Paracel islands during 2017 to equip its larger outposts to be air and naval bases. The Washington-based Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative closely tracks developments in the South China Sea, where China and several Asian governments have conflicting territorial claims. It said on Thursday there has been construction of hangars, underground storage, missile shelters, radar arrays and other facilities. In this video, Defense Updates analyses HOW CHINA HAS USED THE NORTH KOREAN CRISIS TO FURTHER ITS CAUSE IN SOUTH CHINA SEA? BACKGROUND China’s sweeping claims of sovereignty over the sea have infuriated competing claimants Malaysia, Brunei, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines as well as Vietnam. United States, Japan, Australia and India favor freedom of navigation as it is a very important sea route with 5 trillion $ in trade, half of global merchant shipping and 1/2 of world’s oil shipment pass through it. The sea also has alleged 11 billion barrels of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. China embarked on its massive land-reclamation program in early 2014. South China Sea Arbitration, was an arbitration case brought by t Philippines against China The landmark decision rejected China’s assertion that it enjoys historical rights over a huge area of the South China Sea encompassed by a “nine-dash line.” China had argued that the tribunal had no jurisdiction in the matter and rejected the decision. Many complex disputes have been resolved with this type of arbitration including maritime boundaries. China’s outright rejection symbolizes its high handed behavior and utter disregard for international norms. CHINA’S STRATEGY China has tried to change the territorial status quo gradually, island-by-island instead of trying to capture in one go. For example, China first occupied the Paracel Islands in 1974 and then slowly expanded its presence southward by attacking Vietnam’s islands in the Spratly chain in the 1980s. This strategy known as salami slicing, aims for slow accumulation of small changes. STATUS The new construction activity comes as China joins what are likely to be protracted negotiations with Southeast Asian nations on a “ ode of conduct” for South China Sea. Tensions with the US on the issue have also eased, despite Washington's criticism of Beijing's conduct. The construction is the follow-up phase to a campaign of land reclamation that was completed by early 2016 in the Spratlys, an island chain where Malaysia, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam and Brunei also have claims. According to the Pentagon, China has added more than 3,200 acres (1,248 hectares) of land to the seven land features it occupies in the area. ANALYSIS Greg Poling, the initiative's director, said China had seized a diplomatic opening after the election of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who adopted a conciliatory stance toward Beijing over their territorial dispute. It's also been less of a focus for President Donald Trump's administration, preoccupied by North Korea's nuclear threat and trade disputes with China. "It's gotten off the front pages, but we shouldn't confuse that with a softening in China's pursuit of its goals. They are continuing all the construction they want,” Poling said. The most construction has been on Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratlys, including hangars alongside its 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) airstrip, underground structures likely intended to house munitions or other materiel, hardened shelters for missile platforms, and communication and radar facilities, the initiative said. CONCLUSION The United States does not claim territory in the South China Sea but has declared it has a national interest in ensuring that the territorial disputes there are resolved peacefully in accordance with international law and that freedom of navigation and overflight are guaranteed. China has opposed what it calls US meddling in an Asian dispute. It is the greatest of irony that even a communist nation Vietnam has sought support from capitalist America to counter belligerence and aggression from China which is a communist nation. Chinese recent activities have been such. China is embroiled in disputes on multiple fronts, latest being with India on Doklam plateau. America under Trump had already stepped up the game with increase in frequency of Freedom of Navigation Operations as well as initiating investigation in illegal trade practices of China. It remains to be seen how U.S can respond to China and North Korea at the same time. Audio by Scott Leffler — scottleffler.com

South China Sea - China Prepares for New Land Reclamation at Scarborough Shoal
 
02:04
South China Sea - China Prepares for new land reclamation at Scarborough Shoal U.S. military confirmed Chinese activity around Scarborough Shoal in the northern part of the Spratly archipelago, about 125 miles west of the Philippines base of Subic Bay. Admiral John Richardson, the head of U.S. naval operations, said that Chinese surface ship activity, survey type of activity is an area of concern that it may prepare for the next possible land reclamation. China seized the Scarborough reef from the Philippines in 2012. Since then, access to the territory has been restricted by China. Scarborough Shoal forms a triangle-shaped chain of reefs and rocks with a perimeter of 29 miles. It covers an area, including an inner lagoon, of 58 square miles. The shoal's highest point, South Rock, measures 6ft above water during high tide. Located north of it is a channel, approximately 1,214ft wide and 36ft deep, leading into the lagoon. Several other coral rocks encircle the lagoon, forming a large atoll. Scarborough Shoal is within Philippines' 200 nautical mile EEZ, if the Scarborough Shoal was considered the territory of Philippines. But if the shoal was considered the territory of China, then Philippines' 200 nautical mile EEZ cannot cover the shoal. The Philippine government brought the dispute to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea as provided in Part XV of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. A tribunal decision is dues in a few weeks. Chinese increased activities on the reef may related to this pending arbitration decision. Some suspects that China may goes further by declaring an Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ). But U.S. military said that it is preparing on response to such a move.

ASEAN to air fears over China's reclamation in South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SINGAPORE -- Southeast Asian leaders will voice concerns over China's large-scale reclamation in the disputed South China Sea during their two-day meeting here, according to an initial draft of the summit statement, bringing to the fore an issue that was avoided last year."We discussed the matters relating to the South China Sea and took note of the concerns expressed by some leaders on the land reclamations and activities in the area, which have eroded trust and confidence, increased tensions and may undermine peace, security and stability in the region," the draft read. Leaders of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations will meet on Friday and Saturday in Singapore, this year's chair. They are to tackle wide-ranging issues such as trade, terrorism and extremism, North Korea, among other political and security issues. ASEAN member states Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam as well as China have overlapping claims in the South China Sea, a strategic waterway along which $3 trillion to $5 trillion worth of trade passes annually. China has created seven artificial islands to bolster its claims of nearly the entire area. It also equipped them with runways, radar and communication facilities, and other military outposts. The draft statement could still change with consultation and if China's allies in the bloc, such as Cambodia, oppose the document's wording. The current wording of the statement is likely to anger Beijing, which has previously insisted that the maritime dispute has no place in a multilateral summit like ASEAN.Under the chairmanship of the Philippines last year, ASEAN did not reflect the expressions of concerns about China's reclamations during the November summit, which was described by many analysts as the weakest statement on the maritime dispute in years.

US Pacific Fleet Commander Admiral Harry Harris made the comments in a speech in Australia on Tuesday night. China has overlapping claims with neighbours in the South China Sea. It has been reclaiming land in contested waters - something it said last year was "totally justified" as it had "sovereignty" over the area.

South China Sea disputes: China’s land reclamation in the Spratlys grows, says Pentagon - TomoNews
 
01:21
BEIJING — A new Pentagon report released on Thursday says that China’s reclamation efforts in the Spratly Islands has grown dramatically over the last few months, and at a rate far faster than earlier this year. Previous estimates that China has reclaimed 2,000 acres since December 2013 are wrong, the Pentagon report says, and the real amount is around 2,900 acres. According to the Pentagon, China has reclaimed more land in the past 20 months than the other claimants combined over the past 40 years. China said in early August that it has halted its reclamation efforts in the island chain, although many countries question these claims. On Fiery Cross Reef, China has built an airstrip that the country could use as an alternative to an aircraft carrier. Reuters reports that the 3,000-metre-long runway will most likely be operational by the end of this year. At many of the reclamation sites in the Spratlys, China has also built channels and berthing areas for large ships. The new Pentagon report, titled “The Asia-Pacific Maritime Security Strategy,” was required by Congress ahead of a 2015 defense bill. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

South China Sea disputes: China’s land reclamation in the Spratlys grows, says Pentagon

Previous estimates that China has reclaimed 2,000 acres since December 2013 are wrong, the Pentagon report says, and the real amount is around 2,900 acres. According to the Pentagon, China has reclaimed more land in the past 20 months than the other claimants combined over the past 40 years. China said in early August that it has halted its reclamation efforts in the island chain, although many countries question these claims. On Fiery Cross Reef, China has built an airstrip that the country could use as an alternative to an aircraft carrier. Reuters reports that the 3,000-metre-long runway will most likely be operational by the end of this year. At many of the reclamation sites in the Spratlys, China has also built channels and berthing areas for large ships. The new Pentagon report, titled “The Asia-Pacific Maritime Security Strategy,” was required by Congress ahead of a 2015 defense bill. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Next Media Animation’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D animated news graphics that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Truth About China's Massive Land Reclamation in the South China Sea
 
04:25
Many believe that China's massive land reclamation and building of military structures like air strips and ports is part of its effort to preempt any favorable ruling to the Philippines in regards to latter's UNCLOS arbitration case against China's 9-dash line claim. China's action is a cause of concern for its Asian neighbors as well as the US. In January 2013, Philippines took China International Tribunal for the Laws of the Sea to challenge the latter's expansive 9-dash line claim in the South China Sea encompassing Philippines sovereign territories in Scarborough and Spratlys. In 2013, in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan's November 2013 destruction in Central Philippines, China was criticized by many countries including its hawkish media for initially donating a paltry $100,000 but increased it to $1.6M amid international criticism. This is in contrast to US aid to its former colony and military ally of $20M and former World War 2 enemy Japan's $30M. Even Swedish furniture manufacturer Ikea's donation of $2.7M surpassed China's donation. It is believed that it was a political statement of China in response to the Philippine UNCLOS arbitration case against her.

South China Sea disputes: China is building a massive airstrip on Fiery Cross Reef - TomoNews
 
01:44
Recent satellite images show China is building its first airstrip in the disputed Spratly Islands and may be working on a second airstrip, according to an analysis by defence journal IHS Janes. Airbus Defence and Space satellite imagery taken on March 23 shows that China has created enough space on Fiery Cross Reef for a runway that is about 3,000 meters long. China began to turn Fiery Cross Reef into an island in late 2014. Fiery Cross Reef lies to the west of the disputed Spratly Islands, an archipelago that is claimed in whole or in part by China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei. Fiery Cross Reef is called Yongshu by China, Kagitingan by the Philippines and Da Chu Thap by Vietnam. Speaking at a press conference in Beijing on Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei defended China's construction in the South China Sea as "reasonable" and "legal." "The relevant construction is conducted within China's sovereign territory, it is reasonable, understandable and legal, and it is not targeting or affecting any other country," Lei said. Other Airbus Defence and Space satellite imagery from March showed reclamation work on Subi Reef, which could also create space for another 3,000-metre runway. Subi Reef is only 25 km away from Thitu Island, which is known as Pag-asa in Tagolog and which China calls Zhongye Island. Thitu Island is held by the Philippines and is home to a civilian population. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

In this episode you will learn more about the Sino-American conflict in the South China Sea. Once both China’s dominant economic market and its physical infrastructure have integrated its neighbours into China’s greater co-prosperity area, the United States’ post–World War II position in Asia will become untenable. The attempt to persuade the United States to accept the new reality has recently become most intense in the South China Sea. An area approximately the size of the Caribbean and bordered by China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippines and others of Southeast Asia, the sea includes several hundred islands, reefs, and other features, many of which are under water at high tide. In 2012, China took control of Scarborough Shoal from the Philippines. Since then, it has enlarged its claims, asserting exclusive ownership of the entire South China Sea and redefining the area by redrawing the map with a “nine-dash line” that encompasses 90 percent of the territory. If accepted by others, its neighbouring countries have observed that this would create a “South China Lake.” China has also undertaken major construction projects building ports, airstrips, radar facilities, lighthouses, and support buildings, all of which expand the reach of its ships and military aircraft and allow Beijing to blanket the region with radar and surveillance assets. The United States has no doubt about what is driving this undertaking. As a recent Defense Department report notes, China’s “latest land reclamation and construction will also allow it to berth deeper draft ships at outposts; expand its law enforcement and naval presence farther south into the South China Sea; and potentially operate aircraft that could enable China to conduct sustained operations with aircraft carriers in the area.” China’s longer-term objective is also clear. For decades it has chafed at the operation of US spy ships in waters adjacent to its borders. While Chinese military planners are not forecasting war, the war for which they are preparing pits China against the US at sea. The powers that dominated China during the century of humiliation all relied on naval supremacy to do so. Xi is determined to not make the same mistake, strengthening the navy, air, and missile forces of the PLA crucial to controlling the seas, while cutting 300,000 army troops and reducing the ground forces’ traditional dominance within the military. Chinese military strategists, meanwhile, are preparing for maritime conflict with a “forward defense” strategy based on controlling the seas near China within the “first island chain,” which runs from Japan, through Taiwan, to the Philippines and the South China Sea. A third world war is not inevitable, but if there is to be WW3, it will certainly begin here. Previous Episodes Link to Episode 1 | https://youtu.be/MJLpGiHhr8E In the first episode we had a look at the scale of China’s Economy today and China's economic development, to understand why China has become a favourite by analysts around the world to become the great power of the 21st century. Link to Episode 2 | https://youtu.be/73k3v-AxJvM In the second episode we took a look at the challenges that China will have to overcome in order to assert its influence over the world. Is there a China economic bubble? Will China's Economy collapse? This video will hopefully develop your understanding of the Chinese Economy. Link to Episode 3 | https://youtu.be/nvm0V95yjeA In the third episode we took a look at the Chinese President, Xi Jinping. What are his ambitions? Can he achieve them? In 2012, China’s President, Xi Jinping, said “The greatest Chinese dream is the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.” The research for this video was based on an excellent book by Graham Allison called "Destined for War".

South China Sea Tension: China Completes Military Facility On Second Island
 
06:43
www.undergroundworldnews.com China has reportedly completed an airstrip on Fiery Cross Reef, one of the islands Beijing has constructed in the South China Sea. Back in April, satellite images which appeared to show that construction had commenced on the runway set off alarm bells in the US and among Washington’s regional allies in the South Pacific. Since then, China’s land reclamation efforts in the disputed waters around the Spratlys have sparked an international furor and touched off a war of words between Washington and Beijing, with the Pentagon assuring China that the US Navy will continue to operate as before in the region and the PLA claiming it will enforce a no-fly zone over the islands “if threatened.” Although China recently claimed to have largely finished the dredging effort, construction atop the islands is moving forward and as Reuters reports, the airstrip on Fiery Cross, first spotted some three months ago, looks to be complete.

Mattis’ remarks on South China Sea 'ridiculous', says Chinese military official
 
02:12
It’s the US that is militarizing the South China Sea, not China, a senior Chinese military official said in an exclusive interview with CGTN’s Global Watch program on Sunday. Zhou Bo, the Senior Colonel and director of Security Cooperation Center of China’s Central Military Commission, made the remarks at the 17th Asia Security Summit in Singapore, in response to recent remarks by US Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Zhou said China’s land reclamation in the South China Sea is not prohibited by any international law and the US is the prominent factor in instability of the region.

U.S. Will Not Block China's Access To Its artificial Islands in The South China Sea
 
10:11
U.S. Will Not Block China's Access To Its artificial Islands in The South China Sea Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, made international headline when he said, during his confirmation hearing with the senate, that United States should block China access to its manmade island in the South China Sea. But that was the first time he took a clear position toward the issue, but also was the last time. No one ever heard this again. So what is the Trump’s administration strategies on the South China Sea? The state department announced that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will travel to Japan, the Republic of Korea and China from March 15 through 19th, his first visit as Secretary of State to the East Asia and Pacific region. The state department clearly said “This administration is also intent on pursuing a constructive relationship with China.” So the key words is “constructive relationship with China”. Preventing China access to those sand built island would not be seen as constructive, but more likely an act of war. So the conclusion is, the South China Sea blockade threat will not be on Rex Tillerson’s agenda during his first official visit to the region next week. The South China Sea is a shallow but endlessly complicated body of water. Six nations , including Taiwan now compete for maritime jurisdiction based on conflicting claims to sovereignty over 51 of roughly 150 islands, atolls, and specks of rock just above the waves south and east of the mainland's coast. At the moment, Trump’s administration has no clear strategies on the South China Sea, besides carrying on the Obama’s Pivot Asia strategies and the Freedom of Navigation. Neither which will stop or slow down China nine dash line claims in the region. On the Freedom of Navigation, Trump’s administration deployed one of its most powerful, and advanced carrier strike group, including aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to patrol the South China Sea water. This move has been well received by Allies and observer. But patrolling will not stop china’s military buildup and land reclamation in this disputed water.

What is the Reason behind China's Man maid Islands in South China sea in Telugu | KC Entertainments
 
06:12
Fiery Cross Reef, also known as "Northwest Investigator Reef", "Yongshu Reef" by the Chinese,"Kagitingan Reef" by the Filipinos,and by the Vietnamese was, prior to large scale reclamation activities by the PRC, a group of three reefs just west of the western edge of Dangerous Ground in the Spratly Islands of the South China Sea. The area is occupied and controlled by China (PRC) as part of Sansha and is also claimed by the Philippines, Taiwan (ROC) and Vietnam. The reef was named after the British tea clipper Fiery Cross, which was wrecked on the reef on 4 March 1860. (A later sister ship has also been named Fiery Cross). The reef was surveyed by Lieutenant J. W. Reed of HMS Rifleman, who reported it to be one extensive reef in 1867, and found the apparent wrecks of the Fiery Cross and the Meerschaum.It was occupied by the PRC in 1988 when they built a UNESCO Marine observation station there, despite immediate opposition from Vietnam leading to armed conflict in March of that year. In 2014 the PRC commenced reclamation activity in the area, and it has been converted into an artificial island of 274 hectares (680 acres).There were around 200 Chinese troops on the reef in late 2014,though this number was likely to have increased significantly in 2015 with the addition of support personnel for the new airbase (including 3,125 m-long runway)and associated early warning radar site.[citation needed] According to Center for Strategic and International Studies, it is "the most advanced of China’s bases" in the sea’s disputed areas, with 12 hardened shelters with retractable roofs for mobile missile launchers already completed. It has enough hangars to accommodate 24 combat aircraft and four larger planes. Fiery Cross reef has a runway long enough to land a Chinese Xian H-6 bomber. A bomber like this could perform combat operations within 3,500 miles of the reclaimed reef.

China rejects US criticism of reclamation work in South China Sea

China strongly criticizes the US for accusing Beijing of increasing tension in the region through its construction projects in disputed parts of the South China Sea. Chunying made the remarks in response to the latest US National Military Strategy report which renewed anti-Beijing allegations regarding the contested South China Sea islands. China claims almost the whole of the South China Sea but its neighbors including the Philippines and Malaysia have overlapping claims. Beijing says creating islands is within its sovereign rights. But China’s neighbors fear the construction work in disputed waters could lead to more land reclamation by China and pave the way for military installations far from its shores.

Southeast Asian nations back halt to land reclamation in South China Sea
 
25:20
By Amy Sawitta Lefevre and Trinna Leong KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Southeast Asian countries on Tuesday backed a U.S. call to halt land reclamation in the South China Sea, underlining unease in the region over Beijing's continued expansion on disputed islands. China has said it does not want the issue raised at this week's meeting of foreign ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Kuala Lumpur. But Malaysia Foreign Minister Anifah Aman said member nations agreed that "exercising self-restraint in the conduct of activities that would complicate or escalate tension must be enhanced" in the South China Sea. Philippines Foreign Minister Albert Del Rosario accused China of carrying out "massive reclamation activities" in the disputed waters. "We see no let up on the unilateral and aggressive activities of our northern neighbour in the South China Sea," he said at a meeting in the Malaysian capital. "The massive reclamation activities ... have undermined peace, security and stability in the South China Sea," he said, urging Southeast Asian countries to address the issue with China.

The Malaysian minister struck a slightly softer tone,... urging China to discuss its plans with ASEAN nations as he noted China was one of ASEAN′s most important trading partners. China continues to defend the reclamation, saying it′s Chinese territory and the structures are for public service use and to support Chinese fishermen.
