Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma raised serious apprehension about Chinese activities in the South China Sea during a Senate hearing. Inhofe said, “It’s like you’re preparing for World War III. You’re talking to our allies over there and you wonder whose side they’re going to be on.” He stated that he was "concerned" that the message was not coming across, after China used a media blitz to present a host of illegal, artificial islands as "search and rescue centers". It is to be noted that last year Chinese state media circulated images of 2.8 km square island fortress for the first time after its completion. On 29th Jan this year, Beijing’s state run media mouthpiece Xinhua says China’s Ministry of Transport has officially opened a ‘maritime rescue center’ on Fiery Cross Reef. Xinhua quotes the ministry as saying. “The center will offer better support to maritime rescue operations in the southern part of the South China Sea,” As per the latest estimates, the Fiery Cross Reef is third largest of China’s artificial island fortresses having more than 100 building. The news article provided no explanation why gun and missile and hardened aircraft hangars were needed on an island meant for maritime rescue. As per Inhofe, the US sat back and watched as China staked its claim on the contested reefs. He emphasized that because the U.S did nothing, the islands are now equipped with weapons and fortifications.

China has been attacked in the South China Sea by Indonesia! Well, at least that's how the Chinese Foreign Ministry describes it. Indonesia has a different side to the story. China has angered most of its neighbors by building fake islands in disputed territorial waters, and acting generally aggressive. Indonesia had been one of the few neutral countries left. But after a Chinese fishing vessel was caught illegally fishing in Indonesian waters, that might have just changed...

Elizabeth Economy and Sheila Smith, Council on Foreign Relations senior fellows, provide an overview of “Dispute in the East China Sea”—a scenario from CFR’s Model Diplomacy (https://modeldiplomacy.cfr.org), a free multimedia simulation program that engages students through role-play to understand the challenges of shaping U.S. foreign policy in an interconnected world. Smith lays out a basic understanding of the dispute, highlighting the East China Sea as a maritime boundary for four East Asian nations: China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. However as evidenced by current headlines, the East China Sea is most often thought of in the context of the bilateral dispute between Japan and China over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands. Economy notes that Japan administers the disputed islands, but that sovereignty over the area is unclear. This is important because, according to international law, the nation that has sovereignty is entitled to develop potentially valuable resources within the islands’ 200-mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ). The Unites States recognizes that China will assert its interests in new ways as it grows and becomes more powerful, says Economy, but seeks to ensure that it does so in a responsible manner. Smith says she is hopeful that the dispute over the islands can be resolved through diplomacy, adding that “we are watching, we are waiting, we are trying to determine” how China’s rise will affect other nations. Instructors interested in exploring “Dispute in the East China Sea” for their classrooms can visit the Model Diplomacy case profile. https://modeldiplomacy.cfr.org/#/cases/8 For more educational resources from the Council on Foreign Relations, visit CFR Campus at www.cfr.org/education.

Vietnam signed a $2.6 billion contract with Russia in 2009 to modernize its submarine force, which included a deal for Moscow to provide Hanoi with six Kilo-class submarines. 3. Satellite imagery taken on March 23, 2015, shows that China has created enough space on Fiery Cross Reef for a runway that is about 3,000 metres long. 4. China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy has surpassed the US Navy in the size of its submarine fleet. Should we be worried? 5.

The guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell carried out a “freedom of navigation” operation to challenge China’s “excessive maritime claims” in the area. China says it sent ships and aircraft to identify and warn off the US ship. The two-day trade meetings in Beijing are being held during a 90-day truce in the ongoing US-China trade war.

This video shows you that South China Sea Showdown: How Vietnam Would Wage War Against China. Vietnam has reason to worry about China — particularly China’s increasing presence in the South China Sea complete with air bases on artificial islands and a massive maritime militia comprised of fishing boats, with crews answering directly to the People’s Liberation Army. Vietnam has its own claims in the region, and recent naval patrols and a landing by a Chinese H-K bomber in the Paracel Islands — a first — have amounted to a violation of Vietnam’s sovereignty, Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry stated on May 21. What’s less clear is how Vietnam would respond if tensions with China were to ever escalate to armed conflict. The scenario is not out of reach. China’s single war since the Korean War was with Vietnam in 1979. In 1988, Chinese troops and naval gunfire killed 64 Vietnamese soldiers at the Johnson South Reef. And during the past few years, Vietnam has patiently bolstered its military with the help of a long-time partner, Russia, clearly in response to China’s own maneuvers at sea. Vietnam’s military doctrine is also closely guarded, according to a recent article by defense analyst Derek Grossman of the RAND Corporation, a research institute with close ties to the U.S. Air Force. But there are a few key attributes of Vietnam strategy that tells us how it would likely confront China at sea — and those date back to wars Vietnam has fought, and won, in the past. ‘People’s war’ An important concept in Vietnamese warfighting is the “people’s war.” “How could the Vietnamese nation have defeated an imperialist power such as France which was backed by the U.S.?” the legendary Vietnamese general Vo Nguyen Giap wrote in People’s War, People’s Army, a 1961 book of military theory. “When the Resistance War spread to the whole country, the Indochinese Communist Party emphasized in its instructions that our Resistance War must be the work of the entire people. Therein lies the keys to victory.” This is somewhat different from “total war,” which often implies an indiscriminate set of targets for military action. “People’s war” refers to the social characteristics of an armed struggle waged by “masses” — for example, at the local level in the form of an armed village during the Vietnam War. The concept doesn’t easily translate to the sea. But according to Grossman, Vietnam has implemented the “people’s war” doctrine at least in part — primarily through the creation of a Vietnamese maritime militia called the Vietnam Fisheries Surveillance Force or VFSF, mirroring the Chinese version. china sea, china south, china southern, china southern airlines, chinese airlines, chinese southern airlines, india us, india us relations, india usa, indo us, indo us relations, latest news in south china sea, south china, south china sea, south china sea conflict, south china sea dispute, south china sea news, south chinese sea, us india relations, usa to india ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

China bluntly told the United States to stop sending ships and military aircraft close to islands claimed by Beijing in the South China Sea, during talks that set the stage for a meeting between President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping later this month. The U.S. pushed back Friday, insisting it will continue to “fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows.” In late September, U.S. and Chinese vessels nearly collided near a disputed reef. Despite the frank airing of differences at the meeting in Washington of the two nations’ top diplomats and military chiefs, both sides stressed the need to tamp down tensions, which have flared amid a bitter trade dispute that Trump and Xi are expected to tackle at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina. “The United States is not pursuing a policy of Cold War containment with China,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters following the U.S.-China Diplomatic and Security Dialogue. “Rather we want to ensure that China acts responsibly and fairly in support of security and prosperity of each of our two countries.”

Vietnam is modernising its military and fostering ties with the US and other countries. In a broader context of US-China competition, it seems that Vietnam will play an increasingly important role; but at the same time, this will put it in a collision course with the China, with potentially detrimental consequences for international security and for the regional stability of an area marked by territorial disputes. Only time will tell what will happen, but it seems that Sino-Vietnamese relations will follow a downgrading course in the coming years.

The U.S. sent two warships close by islands claimed by Beijing in the disputed South China Sea on Monday, the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet said, as American negotiators arrived in the Chinese capital for talks aimed at resolving a trade spat between the two powers. A spokesman for the 7th Fleet told The Japan Times that the guided-missiIe destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble had “conducted freedom of navigation operations (FONOPS) in the South China Sea,” with the two vessels sailing “within 12 nautical miles” (22 km) of the Spratly Islands.

Reef Madness: The insignificant island chain pushing the south china sea to the brink of war Subscribe to Journeyman: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=JourneymanPictures For more on this escalating situation visit: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlGSlkijht5gc6AwNdNCKra10gSLaxae6 For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/?lid=67224 The Spratly Islands are an unremarkable scattering of reefs and sandbars in the South China Sea. But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict? "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has warned Beijing against militarising the South China Sea following reports that China has installed missile systems in the Spratley Islands for the first time. Ms Bishop would not say if the Australian Government had intelligence confirming that - but said if the reports were accurate, then the Government would be worried. "If the media reports are accurate then the Australian Government would be concerned because this would be contrary to China's stated aspiration that it would not militarise these features," Ms Bishop said.

USA / China / Russia High Tension (https://youtu.be/Beqji2xQhW8) South China Sea High Tension - US / UK / China (https://youtu.be/ImSbaGXLKpw) 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

China has established numerous military installations in the South China Sea, primarily in the Spratly and Paracel Islands. In the Spratlys, China has built airfields at Subi, Mischief and Fiery Cross, along with potential missile, radar and helicopter infrastructure at several smaller formations. In the Paracels, China has established a significant military installation at Woody Island, as well as radar and helicopter facilities in several other areas. China continues construction across the region, meaning that it may expand its military presence in the future. The larger bases — Subi, Mischief, Fiery Cross and Woody Island — have infrastructure necessary for the management of military aircraft, including fighters and large patrol craft. The installations have been objected by it neighbors such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Vietnam. Though the US takes no position on the territorial dispute in the South China Sea, its warships have conducted routine “freedom of navigation” operations near the reclaimed islands.

RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN A dangerously close encounter in disputed waters has become the latest flashpoint in worsening Sino-American relations. The South China Morning Post reports that on September 30, the USS Decatur was sailing near China-claimed Gaven Reef in the South China Sea’s Spratly Islands when it was approached by a Chinese ship. The PRC destroyer Luyang reportedly came within 45 yards of the American vessel’s bow, prompting it to maneuver to prevent a collision. The South China Sea has long been a site of conflict, not just for the U.S. and China, but for many countries in the region, whose overlapping claims on disputed waters are based on their Exclusive Economic Zones. In contrast, China purports to own 90% of the South China Sea based on historic rights, using a nebulous “9-dash line” to back its territorial claim. Though the U.S. has no stake in the disputed waters, it has repeatedly challenged China’s maritime claims through freedom of navigation operations, resulting in several altercations over the years. American and Japanese ships held joint military exercises in the contested region as recently as September. Weeks later, U.S. bombers flew through the area twice in three days. Following the USS Decatur incident, a U.S. Navy proposal suggests a large military exercise in the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait as a global show of force to warn China, reports CNN. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

South China Sea dispute kya hain? [in hindi] Aur kyun iss par itnaa vivaad aur behas ho rahi hain? South China sea poore duniya ke samundra ka bohot hi ahem hissa hain. Jahan se duniya ka 30% shipping trade (vyapaar) guzarta hain. Itna hi nahin samundra ka ye hissa duniya ke kaee keem’ti cheezoon se bhara pada hain. Chahe wo world ki 10% fishries ho, Crude Oil ho, ya Natural Gas! Yahan par qudrat ke bahut se khazane maujood hain. Subscribe to our channel here: https://goo.gl/XTRf92 ------------------------------ Do you Know; What is South China Sea Dispute? It is a territorial and sovereignty dispute over a busy waterway. And two island chains Paracels and the Spratlys claimed in whole or in part by a number of countries. Goods worth $5.3 trillion pass through the South China Sea, which is also rich in marine life, contributing to 10 percent of the world's fish trade. And the 3.5 million square kilometers of underlying bedrock in South China Sea contain oil and natural gas deposits that, by US estimates are at least equal to Mexico’s and by some Chinese estimates, may be second only to Saudi Arabia. Its also home to lucrative fisheries and supply routes that carry 80 percent of China’s crude imports, the territorially disputed region may be the most strategically important waterway of the 21st century. Why does China want to control the South China Sea? Control of the South China Sea would allow China to dominate a major trade route through which most of its imported oil flows. It would also allow China to disrupt, or threaten to disrupt, trade shipments to all countries in East and Southeast Asia as well as deny access to foreign military forces, particularly the United States. The floor of the South China Sea contains massive oil and natural gas reserves. Sovereignty over the region could give China a level of energy security and independence far beyond what it currently possesses. Why is the US involved in South China Sea Conflict? Every year about $1.2 trillion of US traded goods pass through this route, and US wants it to remain as part of international waters. The stretch is also close to the Philippines, an ally of United States in the region from where America can keep an eye on the developments in China.

This video shows you that War in the South China Sea: 3 Ways America and China Fight it Out. Support Us: Power Bank: https://amzn.to/2M1HHqi Sony Headphone: https://amzn.to/2Qa0KlC Redmi 5: https://amzn.to/2wHzXUw What’s less than clear is that Beijing fully understands the risks of this strategy, or the dangers of pushing the United States Navy on freedom of navigation, one of the long-term core interests of the United States. And given that governments sometimes don’t even understand that they’re playing a dangerous game until they find themselves in the middle of it, a great deal of caution is warranted. It’s easy to imagine an even more serious confrontation in the SCS. Another accidental collision would be bad enough, but if a scenario developed similar to that of the downing of KAL 007, with a Chinese fighter jock actually opening fire on an American plane, the situation could get ugly very quickly. And if an American pilot fired upon a Chinese plane, the reaction of the Chinese public could become too much for Beijing to reasonably handle. Neither China nor the United States want war , at least not in the near future. China’s military buildup notwithstanding, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and its components are not ready to fight the United States. The U.S., for its part, would surely prefer to avoid the chaos and uncertainty that any military conflict with China would create . Nevertheless, both China and the United States are making commitments in the South China Sea that each may find difficult to back away from. Over the past two weeks, these commitments have generated a war of words that analysts of the relationship have found troubling. The key problems focus on China’s efforts to expand (or create) islands in the Spratlys , which could theoretically provide the basis for claims to territorial waters. The insistence of the United States on freedom of navigation could bring these tensions to a boil. Here are three ways in which tensions in the South China Sea might lead to conflict. Island Hopping in the SCS Over the past several months, China has stepped up construction of what observers are calling “ The Great Wall of Sand .” This “great wall” involves expanding a group of islands in the Spratly chain so that they can support airstrips, weapons, and other permanent installations. It appears that Beijing is committed to defending these new islands as an integral parts of Chinese territory, a position that the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea does not support. Washington has other ideas, and has maintained that it will carry out freedom-of-navigation patrols in areas that China claims as territorial waters. The prospects for conflict are clear. If U.S. ships or aircraft enter waters that China claims, then Chinese sailors, soldiers, and pilots need to take great care about how they respond. A militarized response could quickly lead to escalation, especially if American forces suffer any kind of serious damage. It’s also easy to imagine scenarios in which island-building leads China to become embroiled against an ASEAN state . In such a case, a freedom-of-navigation patrol could put China in an awkward position relative to the third party.
