US analysts: Beijing uses Washington’s North Korea’s abstraction for its own purposes


Specialists at the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative say they have analyzed satellite imagery and concluded that traces of work carried out under the control of the Chinese military are visible on the Paracel Islands, as well as on the Spratly Archipelago (Nanshatsundao). It is noted that China is creating on the islands, which are claimed by several other countries in the region, hangars for aviation technicians, installs radar equipment, carries out soil work to create underground warehouses.

Earlier, the US Secretary of State (this week) called on official Beijing to “abandon provocative actions in disputed territories.”
At the same time in Washington declare that they intend to occupy "neutrality" in the matter of ownership of the islands, adding about the "need to be guided by international law." And when did the United States themselves be guided by international law for the last time? Or is this right, according to Washington, extends to all countries of the world, except the United States?

    What do you want? Themselves are doing the same, but not the other?

      Why shouldn't China do this?

      The Americans will soon begin to blame China for all of their stocks, in Southeast Asia. Like these are not “weak heads” mattresses, but the Chinese are harming them

    it would be strange if Beijing did not take advantage of this. the question is different: maybe the Yankees are extremely “interested” in China playing the Korean theme?

      I understand that international law is created as necessary by the interested party. So am I right?

    "The material stated that while Washington is completely absorbed in the situation with the North Korean nuclear program, China is increasing activity on the islands in the South China Sea, including artificially created ones."
    Yeah, you might think the Chinese are very afraid of the Americans .... They solve their problems calmly and systematically. And the opinion of the states does not bother them much ...
