Subscribe to our YouTube channel here: https://sc.mp/2kAfuvJ China and several of its neighbours have been involved in a decades-long dispute over who controls the South China Sea. China claims most of the sea as its territory, but the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan say parts of the sea belong to them. Tensions have risen over the years and resulted in several confrontations as well as US involvement. The South China Morning Post looks at the origins of the dispute, what these countries are fighting over and what they’re doing to assert their territorial claims.

What does China want? | The Economist

An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

China's territorial claims | The Economist
 
03:08
Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbours bedevil its boundaries to the east, south and west. Added to www.audiovideo.economist.com in February 2010. Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj Over the centuries China has grown and shrunk, and grown. It began as a unified state in a third century BC but became far larger by the time of Mongol rule in the 13th century, and again during the last imperial dynasty the Qing. In 1921 Mongolia's independence took out a huge chunk. Today's map is a legacy of empire building. Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbors still bedevil its borders. Even at the best of times China and Japan often treat each other as rivals. Their differences are sharpened by territorial feuds. A cluster of rocks called the Diaoyutai Islands, or Senkakus in Japanese, is the focus of much bickering. Japan controls them, but China says it should. And how to draw the line between their exclusive economic zones. Japan says it should be halfway between them, China claims the entire continental shelf up close to Okinawa. In 2008 both sides agreed to develop the area together but now Japan's are angry about the Chunxiao gas field, known as Shirakaba gas field in Japanese, where it thinks China is trying to suck natural gas from the Japanese economic zone. Other claims would stretch China's territory deep into Southeast Asia. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia all have competing claims with China here. In 2002 all parties agree to exercise self-restraint but tensions have been growing again recently. China said last year it wanted to develop tourism on the Paracel Islands which are also claimed by Vietnam. Again oil and gas are involved, and China wants a boat service from Hainan. Tensions are simmering again in the Himalayas too. Disagreements here with India led to a border war in 1962. China's recent worries about Tibet seem to be reviving them. China's stepped up its accusations that India is occupying what China calls South Tibet. India calls this region the state of Arunachal Pradesh. To the west India says China is occupying its territory in Aksai Chin. Talks between China and India have been getting nowhere. Finally there's Taiwan. China's long been fearful that the island might make a formal bid for independence. In the mid-1990s China made gestures that alarmed Taiwan and its backer America. America moved to aircraft carriers close to the island is warning to China to back off. Lately things have been smoother; in 2008 director rights between Taiwan and the mainland were launched along with direct sea transport and postal links. China's trying to persuade its neighbors that its rise is not to be feared but its border disputes and feud with Taiwan create widespread unease in the region. Many wonder whether a powerful China might one day try to take by force the land that it sees as its own.

China's island building in South China Sea not "territorial expansion": Australian expert
 
02:05
INTRO China's artificial island building in the South China Sea is a product of defending its historical territory claims and not a case of territorial expansion, according to an Australian analyst. PKG China is building a series of safe havens within its territory in the South China Sea, aimed at better protecting human lives and property that are often vulnerable in the rough seas. Greg Austin is a former Australian intelligence analyst who has studied the South China Sea for over 30 years. SOUNDBITE: GREG AUSTIN, University of New South Wales "The idea that the building of these artificial islands is somehow creeping territorial expansionism is really not what China thinks it is.China is trying to keep alongside a position against the rival claimants who have occupied all of the natural islands. China's only natural option was to build up these artificial Islands." Austin says, China is defending historical claims that were first made in 1933 by the then government and date back almost five centuries. SOUNDBITE: GREG AUSTIN, University of New South Wales "We shouldn't allow our shock at China's building up of artificial islands to somehow convince us that this is naked aggression by China. It's not naked aggression." "There is no evidence of any Chinese government attack or pressure on any commercial shipping in the South China Sea since 1949 when the communist party took control of mainland China, and even before." Austin says, the only countries to ever use significant force against commercial shipping in the area were the Japanese and allied forces against each other in World War II. Austin calls on China to take a leadership role and settle the dispute once and for all. SOUNDBITE: GREG AUSTIN, University of New South Wales "So um, as senior Chinese officials have said in the last two weeks, China showed great flexibility, great responsiveness in negotiating disputed land boundaries, ah, all along its border in the last 20 to 30 years, including the disputed border with the former Soviet Union and Russia. Ah, well, we’re really looking to China now to see how it can apply its creativity to try and settle down this dispute."

The U.S. quietly made a big splash about the South China Sea
 
10:51
On March 1, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated: “any armed attack on Philippine forces, aircraft or public vessels in the South China Sea will trigger mutual defense obligations under Article IV of our mutual defense treaty.” To many analysts, Pompeo’s statement appeared to be the most significant action the Trump administration has taken to “redouble our commitment to established alliances” in the Indo-Pacific region, as promised in the 2017 National Security Strategy. It has long been unclear, however, whether the South China Sea falls “in the Pacific” — in which case the U.S.-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty would apply in the event of an armed attack there. If not, Manila would probably be on its own. Read More: https://wapo.st/2Fkwyzt

US refuses to recognize South China Sea islets as Chinese territory
 
04:55
China has warned against any violation of its territorial waters by American warships. A Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman said the country’s military will take all necessary measures in response to any future incursions by US vessels into its territorial waters around islands in the South China Sea. The warning followed the sailing of a US guided missile destroyer within the 22-kilometer territorial limit of one of the islands newly created by China. The US refuses to recognize the man-made islets in the strategically vital region as deserving of sovereign territory status. The Chinese side took no forceful action during a US warship’s sail-by on Tuesday, but strongly protested the move. The spokesman offered no details on how Beijing might respond differently in the future.

There is also a long-running fued between China and Japan over Senkaku/ Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea. In the west of the country China and India fought a war over a swathe of disputed Himalayan border in 1962 and even in 2016 the spat continues to provoke fiery exchanges between Asia’s two biggest super-powers.

South China Seas territorial disputes: China building massive island at Fiery Cross Reef
 
01:17
Satellite images obtained by a defense publication show that China is building an island large enough to house an airstrip in the disputed Spratly Islands. As shown by satellite images published by IHS Jane’s, China is reclaiming land at Fiery Cross Reef. The reclaimed island will be at least 3,000 metres long and between 200 and 300 metres wide. A People’s Liberation Army garrison has been built on the reef’s southwestern edge. It is not connected to the island yet, but analysts believe China will likely join it up with the island later. The island will be able to accommodate an apron and a runway. Once completed, the construction will give more leverage to China, as it is the only claimant that doesn’t have access to an airfield. China has been building islands, including at Johnson South Reef, Cuateron Reef, and Gaven Reefs, in the disputed area. But the construction at Fiery Cross Reef is by far the largest. The United States has urges China not to continue with the reclamation projects in the South China Sea. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

TRT World - World in Focus: South China Sea Territory Dispute
 
02:26
Tensions rise as China expands in South China Sea On an issue bringing attention for decades, the Spratly Islands dispute comes back rising tensions after China builds a runway on Fiery Cross Reef. Countries claiming territory raged when Beijing conducted its first flight test on the disputed region. Analysts say China’s military presence in South China Sea could result to a Beijing-controlled air defence zone. China tries to control almost all of South China Sea while it often holds drills as part of its navy's annual training. The territory is believed to have huge oil and gas deposits. Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member-states Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei claim parts of the sea. China’s intense presence at Spratlys causes reactions This comes after Vietnam said Beijing violated its sovereignty when it landed a plane on a runway Beijing built on Spratly islands. "China's test flight in Kagitingan Reef definitely has raised tension, and this is one of the causes of concern for countries in the region. First of all, there was the creation of artificial islands, and then they were able to land their aircraft. We fear that eventually China will be able to take control of the South China sea, and it will affect the freedom of navigation, freedom of overflight plus the unimpeded flow of commerce," Philippine Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Charles Jose said. Which country claims what Beijing claims most of the Paracel and Spratly islands territory, a place that Taiwan also hopes for. However, Vietnam says it was the first to dominate the islands holding documentation proof. Philippines and China both claim Scarborough Shoal (Huangyan Island) whereas Malaysia claims a small part of Spratly islands. Brunei also claims territory in South China Sea but not any of the disputed areas. China completed building a new airfield late in 2015 in the Fiery Cross Reef where as experts support, China could accommodate most Chinese military aircraft.

UK to send new aircraft carrier loaded with F35 jets into South China Sea The United Kingdom will deploy its new aircraft carrier, loaded with two squadrons of F-35 aircraft into the politically-fraught South China Sea. British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson confirmed in a speech that the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth will sail into waters that are the subject of dispute between China and other nations. At an address given to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, Williamson said Britain was the second largest investor in the region and it must display “hard power” and “lethality” to help protect interests. The £3 billion ($3.9 billion) carrier’s outing will also sail into the Middle East and Mediterranean and will be officially a mixed U.K./U.S. deployment. “Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier’s air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces (and) reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners,” Williamson said. The U.K. defense minister did not confirm exact dates for the mission. China has laid claim to almost all of the strategic South China Sea which is viewed as important for shipping lanes and potential resources. United States destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed close to the Spratly Islands, territory disputed by China and the Philippines. China claimed that the ships entered without official permission but a spokesman for the US Navy’s 7th Fleet told CNN that the operation was to “challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law.” China is in the process of developing its own aircraft carrier capability, with currently only one considered combat-ready. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) the country could have as many as 6 carriers by the 2030s. Source www.cnbc.com
WHY CHINESE MILITARY OUTPOSTS IN SOUTH CHINA SEA WILL NOT LAST EVEN A FEW DAY AGAINST U.S ?
 
07:18
China has established numerous military installations in the South China Sea, primarily in the Spratly and Paracel Islands. In the Spratlys, China has built airfields at Subi, Mischief and Fiery Cross, along with potential missile, radar and helicopter infrastructure at several smaller formations. In the Paracels, China has established a significant military installation at Woody Island, as well as radar and helicopter facilities in several other areas. China continues construction across the region, meaning that it may expand its military presence in the future. The larger bases — Subi, Mischief, Fiery Cross and Woody Island — have infrastructure necessary for the management of military aircraft, including fighters and large patrol craft. The installations have been objected by it neighbors such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Vietnam. Though the US takes no position on the territorial dispute in the South China Sea, its warships have conducted routine “freedom of navigation” operations near the reclaimed islands.

Territorial Dispute in the South China Sea: Islands, Oil, and the Hope for Peace
 
02:56
From http://VideoThink.net : China has been using aggressive military tactics to secure disputed petroleum resources around the South China Sea. This is worrying China's neighbors. The resulting arms race will cost a great deal of money for all these nations. These vast sums would be better spent on improving ordinary people's lives. Being the largest country in the area, China inevitably has a military advantage. Apparently, the temptation to use this advantage is irresistible for China's leaders. However, building up China's military to intimidate its neighbors will not only be expensive, but will risk starting a destructive and costly war as well. If China's leaders really believe they have a valid territorial claim, then they should pursue arbitration, as Vietnam and the Philippines have done. The results of arbitration would likely be that China would be required to share the disputed territory and resources with its neighbors. Is that not good enough for China? Pursuing arbitration and sharing natural gas, oil and fishing resources would earn China considerable respect, which it won't get by bullying. The South China Sea includes, the Spratly Islands, the Paracel Islands, the Pratas Islands, the Macclesfield Bank, and the Scarborough Shoal.

South China Sea: US Navy to challenge China's outrageous territorial claims - TomoNews
 
01:18
WASHINGTON D.C. — The United States Navy has signalled its intention to sail a surface ship close to Chinese artificial islands in the South China Sea to demonstrate Washington doesn't view the reclaimed land as sovereign territory. A U.S. official speaking to the Financial Times on the condition of anonymity said the Navy would sail a ship within the 12 nautical mile territorial zone claimed by China in the Spratly archipelago sometime within the next two weeks. The Navy Times reports that officials said the move could happen "within days," following formal approval from the Obama Administration. China claims almost the entirety of the South China Sea as its territory, a contested area extending deep into Southeast Asia. Here, China has been busy constructing artificial islands on submerged reefs and wants to enforce territorial no-go zones around this reclaimed land. Under the United Nations Law of the Sea Convention, a navy ship can may pass within 12 nautical miles of territory without conducting military operations, this is known as "innocent passage." The U.S. Navy plans to conduct such a maneuver near the Spratly Islands — to signal it doesn't recognise China's absolute claim on the area. China's South China Sea claim is also contested by Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Taiwan, countries whose 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zones overlap with China's Claim. The U.S. says it wants to support free passage per international law. U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Admiral Scott Swift told the New York Times that Washington does not recognize any of China's territorial claims in the area. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

UK and US Naval Manoeuvres  Threaten to INFLAME Territorial Tensions in South China Sea

US and UK navy ships last week conducted joint manoeuvres in the South China Sea - a move which could threaten to escalate regional tensions amid fears of growing Chinese dominance. Both the UK and US insisted the drills were to emphasise their shared goal of peace and stability in the region. Commander of the USS McCampbell, Commander Allison Christy said: “Professional engagement with our British counterparts allows us the opportunity to build upon our existing strong relationships and learn from each other.” The news release that accompanied the manoeuvres stated it was a “personnel exchange of designed to address common maritime security priorities”.

UK to send new aircraft carrier loaded with F35 jets into South China Sea The United Kingdom will deploy its new aircraft carrier, loaded with two squadrons of F-35 aircraft into the politically-fraught South China Sea. British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson confirmed in a speech that the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth will sail into waters that are the subject of dispute between China and other nations. At an address given to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, Williamson said Britain was the second largest investor in the region and it must display “hard power” and “lethality” to help protect interests. The £3 billion ($3.9 billion) carrier’s outing will also sail into the Middle East and Mediterranean and will be officially a mixed U.K./U.S. deployment. “Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier’s air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces (and) reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners,” Williamson said. The U.K. defense minister did not confirm exact dates for the mission. China has laid claim to almost all of the strategic South China Sea which is viewed as important for shipping lanes and potential resources. United States destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed close to the Spratly Islands, territory disputed by China and the Philippines. China claimed that the ships entered without official permission but a spokesman for the US Navy’s 7th Fleet told CNN that the operation was to “challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law.” China is in the process of developing its own aircraft carrier capability, with currently only one considered combat-ready. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) the country could have as many as 6 carriers by the 2030s. Source www.cnbc.com

An international court has ruled against Beijing over its territorial claims in the disputed South China Sea. China, however, has said it will not accept the decision.

Why names matter in South China Sea territorial disputes

Why names matter in South China Sea territorial disputes SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Though it is above my station to judge the validity of the sovereignty claims of China versus Japan over the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands, K.L. Tam’s claim that China has an inchoate right to the islands for being the first to name them offers a logic that China itself would likely disagree with, given its claims to the islands of the South China Sea. As noted in Bill Hayton’s excellent book, The South China Sea: The Struggle for Power in Asia , the Chinese cartographer, Chen Duo, published in 1933 his “Newly Made Chinese Atlas”, in which the Chinese sea border stretched down to 7 degrees north – including the Spratly Islands. The government of the then Republic of China’s Review Committee for Land and Water Maps followed this up in January 1935 by publishing a list of the 132 islands and islets that the committee believed rightfully belonged to China. How China-Japan relations will benefit from new crisis management agreement However, all of the names are transliterations of the Western names that appeared on navigation maps dating back several hundred years. For example, North Danger Reef was called Bei Xian and, in the Paracels, Antelope Reef became Lingyang Jiao. In April 1935, the committee published “The Map of the Chinese Islands in the South China Sea,” claiming an extension of the southern border to 4 degrees north. This is the location of James Shoal, which the Chinese translated as Zengmu Tan (“zengmu” is a transliteration of James and “tan” means beach or sandbank). A beach or a sandbank is something that sticks out of the water while a shoal is an underwater feature. James Shoal is 22 metres below the surface. It would appear that the committee was unfamiliar with the area when it declared it to be a land feature and based its territorial claims on a piece of territory that doesn’t exist.

The Philippines, Vietnam, and Territorial Disputes in the South China Sea
 
02:00:37
As Beijing continues to trumpet its “New Type of Great Power Relationship” with the United States, and the United States attempts to buttress its “Rebalance to Asia”, Asia-Pacific nations keep a close eye on relations between the two giants. http://www.wilsoncenter.org/event/the-philippines-vietnam-and-territorial-disputes-the-south-china-sea New questions about China’s intentions and America’s commitments in the region seem to arise every week of late. Tensions are flaring over the Philippines’ arrest of Chinese poachers in its exclusive economic zone, over Chinese reconstruction of a reef in the Spratley Islands, and over Chinese drilling near the disputed Paracel Islands and the protests that ensued in Hanoi. Dr. Aileen Baviera of the University of the Philippines and Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan of the Institute for Foreign Policy and Strategic Studies of the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam discussed their respective countries’ interests in the region and their perspectives on Sino-U.S. cooperation and competition in Asia-Pacific. This event was part of the Wilson Center’s Weighing the Rebalance Series, a joint effort of the Asia Program and the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States. This three-year series brings regional experts to Washington to analyze Chinese and American roles in Asia-Pacific from the viewpoints of countries affected by Sino-U.S. competition and cooperation. The Series will conclude with a multilateral conference and publication of policy-briefs for policymakers in Washington and Beijing.

Protest outside Chinese Consulate over territorial disputes in South China Sea
 
01:49
Filipinos and Vietnamese residents in the Philippine capital Manila staged a joint protest on Friday against China's incursions into South China Sea territories claimed by their countries. Chanting "China get out," more than 100 Filipinos and Vietnamese on Friday picketed the Chinese consulate carrying banners, including one that urged Manila and Hanoi to "join hands" against Beijing. China claims virtually the entire South China Sea, a busy sea lane atop what is believed to be rich oil and gas reserves. Chinese and Vietnamese ships have been locked in a standoff since early this month after Beijing deployed an oil rig near the Paracel Islands that are claimed by Hanoi. Manila has spoken out against Chinese land reclamation on a reef that it says is Philippine territory. Moreover, the Philippines charged nine Chinese fishermen on Monday with poaching more than 500 endangered sea turtles at a disputed South China Sea shoal despite China's demand for them to be immediately freed. There have also been violent anti-Chinese riots in Vietnam.

Taiwan has so far played a marginal role in tackling the series of disputes between China and its neighbors in the South China Sea, through which $5 trillion in ship-borne trade passes every year. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all have overlapping claims in the South China Sea. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/e1Aje1_K0Aw/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

South China Sea dispute

A UN-backed tribunal is on Tuesday expected to deliver its verdict on a Philippine challenge over Chinese-occupied territory in the South China Sea. China claims most of the sea, even waters approaching neighbouring countries, based on a vaguely defined "nine-dash-line" found on a 1940s Chinese map. The Philippines, and other countries, dispute this claim.VIDEOGRAPHIC

Various of abandoned fishing vessel STORYLINE: Along the northwestern Philippine coast, poor children with claw hammers clamber aboard an abandoned fishing vessel to pry loose and steal rusty nails from its deck. It's become a familiar sight in villages where some fishermen have been forced to give up their livelihoods since China took control of their fishing haven last year. Fishermen say Chinese maritime surveillance ships have shooed them from the Scarborough Shoal, in the South China Sea,, and roped off the entrance to the vast lagoon that had been their fishing paradise for decades. Now, they say, they can't even count on the Chinese to give them shelter there from a potentially deadly storm. Joey Legazpi, a local fish trader, recently accused the government of taking a "soft stance" on the issue. "We are nearer the shoal so we should be the ones who should be aggressive," he said. Large swarms of fishing fleets are getting entangled in an expanding labyrinth of Asian territorial conflicts. China and other rival claimants in the South China Sea have poured air, naval and paramilitary forces into the area, increasing the risk of confrontations. Chinese maritime surveillance ships took control of Scarborough, which Beijing calls Huangyan Island, and roped off the entrance to its vast fishing lagoon following a two-month standoff with Philippine government ships last year. The chain of reefs and rocks 230 kilometres (143 miles) west of the northwestern Philippine province of Zambales falls under its 200-nautical mile (370-kilometre) exclusive economic zone, Filipino officials say. The area lies about 870 kilometres (542 miles) from China's nearest coast. Some other South China Sea islands claimed by China are much closer than that, but those are also claimed by other countries, including Taiwan and Vietnam. Many other areas of the sea are volatile. Vietnam lodged a protest in March after claiming its fishermen were fired upon by a Chinese ship, damaging their boat.
