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.

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 one on one with Malaysia to settle South China Sea disputes China has been pushing Malaysia to solve the two countries’ South China Sea disputes in the hope of calming one of its most important neighbours. A source familiar with China-Malaysia ties said Beijing had suggested setting up a “bilateral consultation mechanism” to discuss disputes exclusively with Malaysia – one of the more vocal claimants in the disputed waters since Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad took power last year. Beijing has been aiming to negotiate a code of conduct for the South China Sea with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) and complete a first draft of a pact by the end of this year, but the two sides remain far apart.

A war of words over potential U.S. actions in the South China Sea is heating up. China is urging the U.S. not to conduct naval patrols within the territorial waters of islands over which Beijing claims sovereignty. The words come as the U.S. is thought to be weighing such patrols-inserting itself, physically, for the first time into territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

The U.S. on Wednesday finished a weeklong sail through the South China Sea with India, Japan and the Philippines, a region fraught with tension amid disputed territorial claims, according to a Navy statement Thursday. The guided-missile destroyer USS William P. Lawrence joined the Indian navy destroyer INS Kolkata and tanker INS Shakti; Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force helicopter carrier JS Izumo and destroyer JS Murasame; and Philippine navy patrol ship BRP Andres Bonifacio in international waters May 2-8. The six vessels gathered “to train together and promote maritime cooperation throughout a free and open Indo-Pacific,” the Navy said in the statement. The ships practiced “formation exercises, communication drills, passenger transfers and held a leadership exchange aboard JS Izumo” during the exercise, according to the statement. The region is important to trade and rich in natural resources. Five nations — China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan — have overlapping claims to almost 70 reefs and islands in the South China Sea, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative. The quadrilateral exercise follows a U.S. request in December that its Pacific allies boost their military presence in the South China Sea. China continues to claim and militarize reefs and islands in the region, contrary to a 2016 decision by a United Nations tribunal. China has created 3,200 new acres of land in the sea’s Spratly Islands since 2013, building artificial land masses for military outposts, according to the center. Last year, China placed “anti-ship cruise missiles and long-range surface-to-air missiles on outposts in the Spratly Islands,” according to a report on China’s military power published last week by the U.S. Defense Department.

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.

The United States angered China today... after a U.S. Navy warship sailed near disputed territory in the South China Sea. Beijing told Washington... to think twice about ″making trouble.″ Our Connie Kim has the story. China says it warned the American destroyer as it entered the waters near the islands ″illegally″ and without its permission... and said it will continue to monitor the waters and airspace... and take any other necessary steps. The Spratleys are a disputed group of more than 750 reefs， islets， atolls， cays and islands claimed by four other countries， including Vietnam and the Philippines. Although the statement from China′s foreign ministry gave no details on precisely where the U.S. ship went，... an unnamed U.S. defense official told Reuters on Tuesday， the USS Lassen sailed within 12 nautical miles， or 20 kilometers of China′s manmade islands in the South China Sea. The Pentagon has thus far declined to comment but had previously said that the patrols are within its rights of free navigation and are routine. Twelve nautical miles around a territory is internationally recognized as sovereign waters， but the U.S. does not recognize the manmade islands as China′s sovereign territory. Washington says the construction of artificial islands on submerged reefs does not entitle a country to claim a territorial limit. Even though Washington does not recognize the islands as Chinese territory， this will be the first time the U.S. has breached the 12－mile nautical limit since China began building up the islands in 2013. China has long stood firm on its claim to the islands，... saying it would ″never allow any country″ to violate its territorial waters and airspace in the area. U.S. experts in China caution against further escalation，... as Washington could launch another patrol near the artificial islands in the coming weeks. Connie Kim， Arirang News.

Aquino did not mention China but clearly referred to Asia's rising military power when he mentioned Recto Bank - internationally known as the Reed Bank - as clearly belonging to the Philippines. "There was a time when we couldn't appropriately respond to threats in our own backyard," said Aquino. "Now it's us who are making it clear to the whole world that what is for the Philippines is meant for the Philippines." The Philippines has alleged that Chinese forces have repeatedly intruded into Manila-claimed areas in and near the Spratlys in the South China Sea since February, including at the Reed Bank. Filipino officials said two Chinese patrol boats threatened a Filipino oil exploration ship into leaving the Reed Bank, which they said was within its regular territorial waters and not part of the nearby Spratlys. Two military planes were deployed during the March 2 incident, but the Chinese boats have left by the time the aircraft reached the Reed Bank, about 90 miles (150 kilometres) from the Philippine coast. Chinese officials have said there were no intrusions because those waters belonged to China. The chain of barren, largely uninhabited islands, reefs and banks in the South China Sea are claimed entirety or partly by China, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Brunei. They are believed to be rich in oil and natural gas and straddle a busy international sea lane. The Spratlys have long been regarded as Asia's next potential flashpoint for armed conflict. The Philippines has said it intends to bring the Spratlys disputes before the UN's International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea. China opposed the plan and wants to negotiate bilaterally instead.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

US warships sailed in the disputed South China Sea to 'challenge excessive' claims by China The U S military said one of its warships sailed near the disputed Scarborough Shoal claimed by China in the South China Sea on Sunday, angering Beijing at a time of tense ties between the world’s two biggest economies. The busy waterway is one of a growing number of flashpoints in the U S China relationship, which include a trade war, U S sanctions and Taiwan. China struck a more aggressive tone in its trade war with the United States on Friday. The tough talk capped a week that saw China unveil new retaliatory tariffs in response to a U S decision to raise its levies on $200 billion of Chinese imports to 25% from 10%. The U S destroyer Preble carried out the operation, a U S military spokesman told Reuters. Preble sailed within 12 nautical miles of Scarborough Reef in order to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law, said Commander Clay Doss, a spokesman for the Seventh Fleet.

Dozens of protesters marched to the Chinese Embassy in Manila on Tuesday to denounce what they claimed was China's incursion in Philippine territories in the South China Sea. "We are here to protest the incursions of China in the Philippines territories and their continuing violations of Philippine sovereignty," said Renato Reyes, Secretary General of leftist organisation Bayan (New Patriotic Alliance) outside the Chinese embassy. China claims almost the entire South China Sea. Those claims have been questioned by the Philippines before the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea. Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also have claims over the territory, which is believe to be rich in oil and gas and is also a major shipping lane. Meanwhile China's navy commander did not rule out a meeting between China and Japan at a symposium for top navy chiefs being held in China's northeastern port city of Qingdao. Admiral Wu Shengli said current tensions made it hard for the two navy chiefs to meet but that "this is an international symposium... and we can't rule out that we may chat with each other about some issues." At the symposium, naval officials from the US and nearly two dozen Asia-Pacific nations adopted an agreement aimed at heading off accidents and miscommunication at sea to reduce the possibility of conflict amid rising frictions between an increasingly assertive China and its neighbours. The agreement outlines how warships should communicate and manoeuvre when they come into contact in heavily trafficked sea lanes surrounding China, Japan and Southeast Asia. Tensions have been rising in the region over competing territorial claims, especially over a group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea that are controlled by Japan but claimed by China. Although not legally binding, the agreement indicates China's willingness to engage with its neighbours, US Navy officials said.

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

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.

The South China Sea disputes involve both island and maritime claims among several sovereign states within the region, namely Brunei, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China, Vietnam, Philippine and Malaysia. Non-claimants want the South China Sea to remain as international waters, with the United States conducting "freedom of navigation" operations. There are disputes concerning both the Spratly and the Paracel islands, as well as maritime, areas near to sea, boundaries in the Gulf of Tonkin and elsewhere. There is a further dispute in the waters near the Indonesian Natuna Islands. The interests of different nations include acquiring fishing areas around the two archipelagos; the potential exploitation of crude oil and natural gas under the waters of various parts of the South China Sea, and the strategic control of important shipping lanes. The Shangri-La Dialogue serves as the "Track One" exchange forum on security issues surrounding the Asia-Pacific region, including territorial disputes in the South China Sea. The Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific is the "Track Two" forum for dialogue on security issues. In February 2016, President Obama initiated the U.S.-ASEAN Summit at Sunnylands for closer engagement with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Territorial disputes in the South China Sea were a major topic, but its joint statement, the "Sunnylands Declaration", did not name the South China Sea, instead calling for "respect of each nation's sovereignty and for international law". Analysts believe it indicates divisions within the group on how to respond to China's maritime strategy. "China’s territorial maneuvers in the contested South China Sea are bringing its neighbor Vietnam and the U.S. closer together, according to the new ambassador to Vietnam" Ted Osius.

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.
