Whether China deploys Haiyang 981 to Spratly Islands?

25/09/2014


Philippine President Benigno Aquino expressed concern about the recent activities of the two Chinese survey ships in the South China Sea which can be a sign that China will carry out oil drilling.
In an interview with the AP on the sideline of the UN General Assembly session in New York on September 23. Mr. Aquino said that all the countries involved in the South China Sea - an important trade route of the world - are so worried about the sententous behavior of China. He also hopes that in the Philippines’ lawsuit against China to international arbitration court, the court will have a clear absurdity about China’s claims, creating a fair play and reducing tension in the South China Sea​​. The lawyer of the Philippines said that the verdict will not be made before the beginning of 2016.
Mr. Aquino has displayed the pictures which prove   that China is reclaimming offshore Johnson Reef of Spratly Islands of Vietnam while other countries also have sovereignty claims. Regarding Reed Bank of Spratly Islands, Mr. Aquino said China has launched two hydrographic ships coming here since June. The Philippines President is not sure about the purpose of the two ships but he questioned whether China has brought Haiyang 981 here or not? But the two ships definitely conducted measurements in this area - he said. This is not only a concern of the Philippines. We believe that besides claimming countries, it affects all parties across the South China Sea”.
AP remarked that while the economic and military power of China is developing, China has behaved more aggressive and administrative claims in the disputed area as well as controlled over the fisheries in the South China Sea.
The President of the Philippines consecutively raised strong voice in the international arena on the conduct of China about the South China Sea issue. During a visit in last September to Spain, Belgium, France and Germany, he also mentioned South China Sea issue with EU counterparts to seek support to resolve the dispute with China, preventing further escalation of tensions in the sea. These countries have also expressed support for the resolution of disputes in a peaceful manner and based on international law.

Communication mechanisms like military hotlines to manage maritime emergencies, similar to the one set up by China and Japan and the one that China and Vietnam agreed to institute in June 2013, could be established among all claimants.

The development of a multilateral, binding code of conduct between China and ASEAN countries is often cited as a way of easing territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

Bringing territorial disputes to an international legal body presents another means of conflict mitigation.

While China has historically preferred to handle all disputes bilaterally, the resumption of negotiations between Beijing and ASEAN still holds promise for reinvigorating a multilateral framework toward greater cooperation and conflict resolution.

An outside organization or mediator could also to be called upon to resolve the disagreement, although the prospect for success in these cases is slim given China’s likely opposition to such options.

Despite extensive trade ties, the parties to the dispute could respond to a rise in tensions by imposing economic sanctions.

Lê Tín 25/9/14 15:36

In response to a Chinese action, for instance, Washington could sanction financial transactions, the movement of some goods and services, and even travel between China and the United States.

Verbal declarations that communicate the seriousness of the dispute and convey support for an ally, as well as offers of military assistance, can also serve as essential “coercive de-escalation” measures during a crisis.
