Pence: The United States will continue to patrol the South China Sea

The United States does not recognize the jurisdiction of China over the South China Sea and will continue to carry out the passage of ships, as well as spans in its waters, said US Vice President Michael Pence following the ASEAN summit in Singapore, reports Reuters.


Pence: The United States will continue to patrol the South China Sea


Commenting on the statement of the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte, who said that the South China Sea is now "in the hands of China", Michael Pence said that the sea could not belong to anyone and therefore the United States would continue military patrols, as well as shipping and overflights of aircraft in any places that are of national interest to the United States, despite the demands of official Beijing.

Earlier, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, after the ASEAN summit in Singapore, urged Washington to abandon military maneuvers in the waters of the South China Sea, saying that disputes in this region are better dealt with in their own circle and without mediation of the US and its allies. He called the sea "Chinese" and asked the United States and its allies to "accept this as a fact."

The United States has repeatedly threatened China with a "show of force" in the waters of the South China Sea, since "Beijing impedes the free navigation of US naval ships and the passage of aircraft."

        The Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague delivered a verdict on the Philippines' lawsuit against China over a dispute over the South China Sea. The court found no grounds for China’s territorial claims and found that Beijing could not claim an exclusive economic zone
        In Washington, the decision of the Arbitration Court was called "an important contribution" to the resolution of territorial disputes in the region. This verdict should be perceived as "final and legally binding," the State Department said in a statement.
        The Chinese Foreign Ministry said it does not recognize the decision of the Hague court and opposes any action based on it. The Chinese Defense Ministry also issued a statement saying that the Chinese Armed Forces will "vigorously defend the country's national sovereignty, security, and maritime rights and interests" regardless of the verdict of the Hague court.
        In a nutshell, the essence of the conflict

        Spank the pelvis, and like firewalls. Download what you need (like a Korean Boeing) and then shout about the unsafe and unprofessional maneuvering of the American military that led to the sinking of a civilian ship.

    Good morning forum users!
    Here I look at these ..... generally overgrown !!
    One cannot calm down without an indicative flogging. China could put them back a bit. How Iran did it. Well, or poke them a little in guano, knock down arrogance. And these utyrk won't do anything! There will be infofoni, but they will not go to war with China. And to others an example of the fact that their "master" is fake!

      I agree with you, I would very much like that they would be given slaps on the head .. but the Chinese, in my opinion, are not capable of this ..

        Dear Svarog !!!!
        They are just capable. Well, first of all, they are at home. By military standards, China dominates the region. Yes, then the Americans can overtake the ships there, but the job will be done and how everything will turn out to be "zilch" with Korea. In the economy, China for the United States is such a partner that it is better to remain silent, not to act. Very expensive. The second after Japan buy their candy wrappers (correct if not right)? If China, after a public flogging, also presents economic blackmail, then the United States will agree that it has gotten excited.
        Something like this. And whipping them the USA is simply necessary !!!!!
        LIFE IS NECESSARY !!!!!

      China could put a little in their place.

      China has the largest turnover with the USA, it is not beneficial for them to aggravate relations with America. The trade war will end sooner or later and they will agree on everything and decide everything. This is Russia constantly rushing to the embrasure to at least somehow and somewhere annoy the amers ... But China is behaving much wiser.

          Well, for example, for the computer that you are currently using, of course, you spend time on the Internet and, possibly, also earn money without the help of two tools ... For example, for a mobile phone in your pocket which, if not an iPhone, is probably based on android .. Let's let's start at least with this and then we'll see ...

        The people of the United States are undoubtedly one of the greats and have made a significant contribution to the history of civilization. Yankees are good hard workers and scientists, and in general on a human level, for the most part good guys, unlike the same "cousins" - the British. But there are a couple of problems at the country level that spoil everything, and the origins of which, apparently, should be sought since the time of the first settlers. This is 1) "syndrome of a fort on a hostile territory", that is, a feeling of security, if only their armed forces are "stronger than everyone else" at times; 2) the attitude to other peoples as to hostile Comanches, who do not feel sorry for civilians; 3) aggressive behavior due to panic fear of a certain dark future, in which hostile forces will take away the coolest macaque from the United States. And at the same time it is not realized that this is the "darkest future" they are preparing for themselves by their own behavior. In the world, the United States is perceived as a gopot that is tolerated while weak. And as those who have become stronger - and strives to send them to the 23rd letter, often, unfortunately, copying the behavior, "this is not us, this is life."

    The United States does not recognize the jurisdiction of China ...
    So, in fact, the United States does not recognize the jurisdiction of other countries that do not agree with them. And the "allies" are often put in the place that they themselves indicated. But they are trying to make them comply with American laws, which they are trying to extend to the whole world. So what international law can we talk about today and even more so declare it?

    I believe that the statements of the Philippine President Duterte that this sea is now Chinese have been somewhat "smoothed". And these statements had the effect of a wick in the anus on the United States. Sly! Duterte, probably since childhood, solved problems with tough guys in the yard lol
