China’s arrogance has once again been exposed in the South China Sea. China’s embassy on Sunday strongly condemned the statements made by the Philippines’ ambassador to the US, saying they disregarded basic facts. Let us tell you that the South China Sea is one of the most important sea lines of international trade. It is considered rich in natural resources. China makes extensive claims on maritime areas. This has reportedly angered rival claimants including Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.

What explanation did China give on Philippines’ allegations?

The Chinese Embassy said that the rhetoric made by the Philippines ambassador had unnecessarily escalated the South China Sea issue. Not only this, because of this China has been tarnished. Philippines Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez said on Wednesday that the US views the South China Sea issue and a possible Taiwan conflict seriously. Given all the clashes taking place there, he believes the real flashpoint is the West Philippine Sea.

China retaliated on Philippines’ claims

The Chinese Embassy hit back at the Philippines’ claims, saying that ‘inviting wolves home and involving small groups will not help resolve differences in the South China Sea, but will, on the contrary, further complicate the situation.’ The embassy has urged Romualdez not to spread rumors of threat from China. The Philippines Embassy in Beijing has not yet said anything on this statement.

Why is the South China Sea strategically important?

In fact, the South China Sea is a huge reserve of untapped oil and natural gas. This is also a huge area for fishing. It is said that there are huge reserves of natural gas in this area up to 190 trillion cubic feet. Apart from this, the South China Sea is also very important from the strategic point of view for various countries. Its importance for sea route trade is also unmatched. That is why China claims the entire South China Sea.

But Vietnam, Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and America and India reject this claim of China. North Korea, South Korea, Japan, China, Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam are the major countries whose territorial waters are the South China Sea.

What is the main dispute in the South China Sea?

According to experts, there is a major dispute regarding territorial waters in the South China Sea. Apart from this, Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) is another major cause of dispute. China changed it of its own free will in 2013. This has become a major cause of controversy. Due to this, China’s ADIZ is crossing the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. This is the main cause of controversy.
