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.

Vietnam signed a $2.6 billion contract with Russia in 2009 to modernize its submarine force, which included a deal for Moscow to provide Hanoi with six Kilo-class submarines. 3. Satellite imagery taken on March 23, 2015, shows that China has created enough space on Fiery Cross Reef for a runway that is about 3,000 metres long. 4. China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy has surpassed the US Navy in the size of its submarine fleet. Should we be worried? 5.

US destroyers set sail again in the disputed South China Sea

Mischief Reef has undergone a massive land reclamation project and is home to a military-grade airfield. Recent reports have also said the islet has emplacements for missiles, extensive storage facilities and a range of installations that can track satellites, foreign military activity, and communications. Beijing has constructed a series of military outposts throughout the waterway, which includes vital sea lanes through which about $3 trillion in global trade passes each year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Brunei have overlapping claims in the waters, where the U.S., Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies also routinely operate. China says its facilities are for defensive purposes, but some experts say this is part of a concerted bid to cement de facto control of the waters. China’s Foreign Ministry reacted angrily to the latest FONOP, blasting the U.S. ships for entering what it called its “territorial seas … without permission.”

ASEAN to air fears over China's reclamation in South China Sea

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.

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 dispute heating up: China reclaiming land around reef off Philippine coast
 
01:19
Satellite images show that China is reclaiming land around a submerged reef in disputed territory in the South China Sea. The photos show that China has been reclaiming land around Mischief Reef, which lies 250km off the Philippine island of Palawan in the disputed Spratly Islands that are claimed by China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei. Several dredgers can be seen at the northern and western edges of the reef. The entrance to the reef has also been widened to about 275 meters, the New York Times reported. "China is creating a great wall of sand with dredgers and bulldozers," Adm. Harry Harris, the commander of the United States Pacific fleet said in a speech in Canberra, Australia. He noted that China has now created more than four square kilometers of artificial landmass. China has rejected criticism of its reclamation activities and said the work falls "within the scope of China's sovereignty", according to Reuters. A Chinese amphibious warship, capable of holding up to 800 troops was also spotted patrolling the reef's southern entrance, according to the New York Times. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

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.

U.S. military spokeswoman did not confirm or deny the Wasp’s presence the area, citing “force protection and security.” However, the spokeswoman confirmed that USS Wasp “has been training with Philippine Navy ships in Subic Bay and in international waters of the South China Sea … for several days.” This comes at a time when the relation between the Philippines and China has reached a new low.

The reclamation of China in the Spratly Islands in the West Philippines Sea

The reclamation of China in the Spratly Islands in the West Philippines Sea, The reclamation of China in the Spratly Islands in the West Philippines Sea (South China Sea) may have started during the earlier reign but under President Rodrigo Duterte's administration that the militarization of the disputed islands took place in full swing, a former attorney general said Monday. "Land reclamation occurred during Aquino's reign. We complained about it before the court and declared it illegal. But all the militarization took place during the current administration, "said former general official Florin Hilbay at a forum in Quezon City. Hilbay is part of the legal team that won the Philippines case against China in the Permanent Arbitration Court in 2016. In the landmark ruling, the international tribunal rejected China's major claims in the South China Sea. He also said that the Philippines has exclusive economic rights to the waters and coral reefs in its exclusive 200-mile economic zone. But Asian superpowers refuse to recognize the decision, and continue to affirm its claim throughout the South China Sea. The Philippine government has also not ruled out clear decisions favoring economic investment and opportunities from China. By contrast, Mr. Duterte has repeatedly blamed the Aquino government and the United States for not doing anything to stop reclamation at disputed seas in recent years. China completed its dredging work to build seven new islands in the Spratly at the beginning of 2016. But the next phase of its buildup in creating air and naval bases was largely after Duterte took office in June 2016. Data previously released by the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative show that the construction of China's facilities at Spratlys and Paracels by 2017 includes 72 hectares or 290,000 square meters. Kagitingan reef (Fiery Cross Reef) has the most construction with 27 acre or 110,000 square meters. It was also the same year with hangars, airstrips, missile shelters, underground structures, radar communications built or completed. China has also made greater activity by 2018 with the spread of bombers, military transport aircraft, anti-ship and anti-missile platforms, and communications jamming equipment. The government has received criticism for its non-confrontational attitude to the West Philippines Sea problem. Foreign Minister Alan Peter Cayetano has repeatedly explained that they do not want to be involved in a "shouting match" with China. While the strategy may have changed under the Duterte administration, Cayetano insisted that the Philippines has not yet yielded to its claims in the West Philippines Sea. Hilbay, however, said favorable arbitration rulings should be the "core base" of the West Philippine Sea strategy. "It's important to understand what that decision means. Ito ang pinaka-importanteng baraha. Ito ang unfortunately natin. They may have a strong navy but this is our most important tool against China, "he said. He said he believed that it was a binding decision because China is a member of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). "The fact itself says that China recognizes the UNCLOS system, and part of it is the mechanism for the completion of mandatory talks that decide on the Philippines and China," he said.

China to expand land reclamation activities in South China Sea, say experts

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... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Newly published satellite images show that China is quickly reclaiming land around a submerged reef within the Philippines' exclusive economic zone, with several dredgers in operation and seawalls built. The work on Mischief Reef is China's most recent reclamation in the disputed Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea. A March 16 image published by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies shows what it said were a chain of small artificial land formations as well as new structures, fortified seawalls and construction equipment along Mischief Reef. An image from Feb. 1 showed a Chinese amphibious transport naval vessel about several hundred meters from the reef's entrance. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/d50sptJUCr4/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

CSIS/AMTI PHOTO SINGAPORE – Southeast Asian leaders have raised “concern” over land reclamations and activities in the South China Sea in a joint statement released Thursday. “We discussed the matters relating to the South China Sea and took note of some concerns 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 chairman’s statement of the 33rd Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) stated. The joint statement, however, did not mention China in particular, who has been conducting reclamation and building military installations in the South China Sea. The word “concern” was omitted in the joint statement during the Philippines’ chairmanship of the Asean in 2017. The Philippines, under the Duterte administration, has sought to improve ties with China after Manila and Beijing’s relations were strained due to the sea dispute. The Asean leaders “emphasized the importance of non-militarization and self-restraint in the conduct of all activities by claimants and all other states” that “could further complicate the situation and escalate tensions in the South China Sea.” Though raising concern over China’s aggressiveness in the disputed waterway, the leaders agreed to a peaceful resolution of sea disputes. “We reaffirmed our shared commitment to maintaining and promoting peace, security and stability in the region, as well as to the peaceful resolution of disputes, including full respect for legal and diplomatic processes, without resorting to the threat or use of force, in accordance with the universally recognized principles of... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

US plans more Asia-Pacific drills to counter Beijing’s reclamation in South China Sea

The United States plans to conduct more military drills in the Asia-Pacific region in what is seen as a strategy to counter Beijing’s rapid expansion in the South China Sea. The US and the Philippines are discussing to increase the size, frequency and sophistication of exercises in the region based on a new plan called the Asia Pacific Maritime Security Strategy. China claims most of the South China Sea. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei also have overlapping claims. China has reclaimed more than one-thousand hectares of land in the region since June. Officials in Beijing say the reclaimed land will be used to host outposts that will be used for undefined military purposes, as well as help with maritime search and rescue operations.

The Washingtonbased Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative AMTI of the Center for Strategic and International Studies reported on Thursday that hangars, underground storage, missile shelters, radar arrays and other facilities have been built. The building follows land reclamation by China which was completed in 2016 in the Spratlys. The island chain is also subject to territorial claims from Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, the Philippines and Brunei.

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.

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
