Obama: China should stop the bulk work in the area of ​​disputed islands

78
Beijing should stop the bulk works on the disputed islands in the South China Sea, Barack Obama said at a meeting with Philippine leader Benigno Aquino, reports RIA News.




Obama noted that "the United States will continue to adhere to obligations to protect and ensure the safety of the Philippines," while expressing hope for a "peaceful resolution of controversial issues."

“However, the principles of free navigation should not be doubted,” said the president.

He called on China to take “decisive steps to reduce tensions, including the fulfillment of commitments to end further claims on the territory, new construction and militarization.”

The day before, the US president promised to give $ 259 million to the allies in Southeast Asia "to ensure maritime security."

In response, the representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hong Lei, advised Obama himself not to complicate the situation.

“The US should stop spinning the South China Sea problem, escalate tensions and complicate existing disputes in the South China Sea,” said Lei.

“Beijing’s construction activities are completely legal and do not affect the interests of other states,” he said.

We are talking about the controversial islands of Nansha, which in addition to China are Vietnam, Brunei, the Philippines and Malaysia.

Does anyone have any allies. China, allies with us and many more with whom. Well, let's everyone will rattle weapons or compare who the horseradish is longer?

    In the end, disputes between which countries are? That's all. Neither the United States, nor Russia, nor the EU, nor NATO have anything to do with these territories. So let them not get into their own business.

China has not poured anything on disputed reefs (21 Vietnam, 8 Phillipin, 3 Malaysia; the rest are vacant); he filled up his own. Well, the fact that territorial waters are formed is the law; there is land - there are territorial waters.

        France, the USA, South Korea and Russia fought for a South African tender for the construction of six nuclear power plants. At the same time, experts recognized: Rosatom is the main candidate for the 93 billionth contract. But at the end of March, it became clear that we rejoiced early: the Chinese unexpectedly won the tender, although Rosatom had already managed to sign an agreement with South Africa on the construction of an atomic cluster! Why did the Chinese prefer us? And it's simple: they promised South Africans credit support. But excuse me, are we partners? Yes, partners. But they, these our Chinese partners, this year sent a giant combined company with a capital of 113 billion dollars to the energy market.


        and in the early 2000s, a bunch of Chinese lived in the hotel in N. Voronezh, who practiced at the Voronezh NPP ... then they built their first NPP if I'm not mistaken with the assistance of the Russian Federation ... or even according to the Russian project .... quickly learn!

      China (represented by Mao and his partisan army) has been an ally of the USSR (there was such a country before the Russian Federation) since the 1930s .... China was an ally of the USSR in the Korean War (a million Chinese "volunteers" participated in the Korean War) ... China was an ally of the USSR until Khrushch recognized the "cult of the personality of Stalin", that is, did not sell the memory of the great leader .... I even believe that Mao, as Stalin's faithful younger brother, went about emotions — he could not forgive the sucker Khrushchev, who has adored his great brother!

    Let the Chinese do what they see fit for these islands. Indirectly, this applies to Russia, if we recall all the claims to these islands and whom the United States supports.
    On the other hand, this is an example for the Russian Federation. Strengthening the coastline for our territories adjacent to the Arctic Ocean and other northern sea waters of our country. A.M. wrote about this even in the 80s of the 20th century. Kondratov in the book "Atlantis of the 5 Oceans" Hydrometeo publisher Leningrad 1987. In the same book about the existing, ongoing erosion of the Novosibirsk Islands.

    Beijing construction activity is absolutely legal

    The gross domestic product also constantly declares similar - "... the activity of Russia is absolutely legal", it always means that there are no forces and determination to act as in Crimea.

    PS Well, I'm waiting for the cons from the zealous URIA-poets ... laughing


    What you will not do at the request of a good person :)

    Yes, it is better to be friends with the head than to be ur-poets. And objectively evaluate information. And, if you don’t know what, and this is normal for you, don’t be too lazy to read on the Internet. Che-thread useful, not necessarily porn ...

    Washington MUST stop poking its pig’s snout in all the “gags” in the world. How much calmer the world will be.

    The Americans will be much amazed when they find out that the Chinese did not fill the island, but the peninsula ending near the Great Barrier Reef! wink

    In my opinion, China can give Vietnam more money than the United States. Recently, China traveled to countries in the region. Obama is catching up and vryatli will have time for the situation. Beijing for peaceful shipping, and the United States with its provocations create problems for all participants in the disputed area. The American global economy and Chinese economy are struggling for a place in the sun. China is against the intervention of America and will continue its policy and does not need intermediaries. In China, a new silk road is being built with the countries of the region and are ready to be friends with the PRC, and not argue over a tidbit.
