US Declares China's Claims for Disputed Territories in South China Sea Unlawful

The United States has officially declared a number of territorial claims of China in the South China Sea illegal. This was stated by the head of the US State Department Mike Pompeo.


In a statement, Pompeo pointed out that the United States is strengthening its policy "regarding a vital part of the region - the South China Sea." In addition, according to the US Secretary of State, Washington considers it illegal "China's efforts to" bring the resources of the region under control through threats. "

According to the United States, China did not provide legal grounds for its policy regarding the disputed islands and territories. Washington emphasizes that in 2016, the arbitral tribunal rejected all claims of Beijing, and the United States will officially adhere to the position of arbitration in its policy.

Washington officially declared unlawful "any actions by China," "threatening the fishing and development of hydrocarbons by other countries" in the South China Sea region.

The world will not allow China to dispose of the South China Sea as its maritime empire

- declared Pompeo.

Official Beijing responded to Mike Pompeo's remarks by criticizing them.

China's position on the South China Sea is consistent and clear. Firmly defending its territorial sovereignty and rights and interests at sea, China adheres to a policy of settling disputes through negotiations and conferences with directly related states <...>. The United States is not a country directly involved in these disputes, but continues to intervene in this matter.

- The report says the Foreign Ministry of China.

            And China declared it illegal for the United States to interfere in other people's territorial disputes.
            Perhaps he really should raise this issue at the UN level. Russia will definitely support him.

      I quote Maxim. blacks can’t restrain themselvesThe truth is that. I propose organizing a worldwide boycott of US dollars with indicative burning of banknotes of $ 1 and $ 20, which depict portraits of the slave owners of Washington and Jackson. Executions in front of the buildings of the US embassies. But in Moscow, this will not happen directly. There are people, even though he is liberal, even though he is a patriot, but he loves dollars. It is possible for NGOs to oblige foreign agents to make their contribution to the fire material under threat of closure. But not only them, the Echo of Moscow, too - these contribute three times. They will know how to slander.

    The world or Washington is trying not to allow?
    I am often struck by the thought that all kinds of courts judge either innocent or petty bipods (abstract pocket thieves), but these criminals who are not just in camera, the gallows crying, do not notice point-blank. The feeling that he lives in an alternative reality, where everything is turned upside down.

      In the capitalist world, the judicial system is also capitalist. It's one thing to catch and imprison some small punks in an exemplary manner, while writing several volumes of the "case" - it seems like the Law works. But when Capital has "democratic" interests, international law is cowardly silent, thereby justifying the most horrible crimes.

      They used to say something like this about intervention if their interests are affected. Then it was about BV. Where is the USA and where is BV. However, their interests approached our borders

    Well, firstly, the South China Sea has long been a disputed zone, many islands and resources! Plus, there are former US vassals who are asking for protection from China. And you can understand them. The Philippines, for example, are unlikely to be able to defend the rights to their territory against China. China behaves in this region brazenly and without ceremony, I know this firsthand! And most importantly, this is the beginning of a real cold war between the United States and China! And whoever passes whom, that will become the world hegemon! But the commentary of the Chinese side shows how they are afraid of confrontation with the United States! The Soviet Union at one time responded to such challenges more decisively and menacingly! China is still weak, but this confrontation is only in the hands of Russia! There is time to boost the economy while super powers sort things out! And try to make money on it!

    It is funny, as readers of VO, recognize China’s right to the entire territory of Southeast Asia, without any reason, and violently criticize the United States, which advocate the established borders of states.
    In their fervor in the United States, China’s heels are ready to lick.

    So the United States can, where they want to dispose, but China does not.
    The US is not a country directly involved in these disputes, but continues to intervene in this matter.
    So he himself answered, "We can, but you cannot." And China was so scared that it laughed.

    The fact of claims is illegal, as is the United States. Let the neighbors decide the dispute, and not the overseas snout.

    The Chinese are happy. Instead of boring "regrets" it is quite clear
    China adheres to a policy ... of negotiations and meetings with the states directly related to this <...>. The United States is not a country directly involved in these disputes,[i] [/ i] however continue to intervene in this matter

    in general, a worthy answer translated from the diplomatic: "whose cow would bellow ..."
