Expert: difficult to support of the United States on the Huangyan Island, the Philippines
International Online News: Philippine Foreign Secretary Rosario and Defense Minister Jia Siming on the 30th visit to the United States, “2 +2″ talks held in Washington with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Panetta. Rosario said earlier that in the talks, the United States informed the Huangyan Island incident. For the United States act of the Philippine foreign and defense ministers, Mr. Qu Xing, director of the China Institute of International Studies, in an interview with this reporter, which is under enormous pressure at home and abroad, the Philippines, hoping to find the United States and its illegal territorial the required support, but the current U.S. statements made illegal claims in the Philippines is difficult to get the support of the United States.
ended on the 30th, the confrontation of the Philippines in the Huangyan Island has been going on for 20 days. From the Huangyan Island, China’s inherent territory, to create disturbances caused by bilateral confrontation, to the just-concluded US-Philippine joint military exercises, and then to the Philippines, the United States, “2 +2″ talks, the Philippines around the Huangyan Island can be described as frequent moves. In this regard, Mr. Qu Xing, director of the China Institute of International believes that the Philippines to attempt illegal territorial claims over the Huangyan Island, China’s inherent territory originally not Zhanli, together with the Philippine government in its domestic misinterpreted facts, speculation has resulted in greater political pressure, and thus want to seek the support of the United States.
Qu Xing, said: Philippines to the United States to talk about this event, the motivation is very clear, it is hoped to get the support of the United States, the Philippines know its own in this matter is not Zhanli, but also in the strength of the fundamental not a Chinese rival. matter was referred to this level, in fact, the domestic political pressure is very large, because the people at home do not know whether it is a situation in this context how do? it felt able to help it is the United States. In fact, the U.S. may not really be able to help it, because this thing is to change the status quo. Huangyan Island should be said, for centuries, the Chinese fishermen in the activities there, the Chinese government it into their own territory to the world officially released map, also in 1948, put it into their own territory until 1997 in the Philippines are not the activities different meaning, and now suddenly raised, so it knows this matter it does not Zhanli, so I hope to get the support of the United States. “
the United States since 2009 to return to the Asia-Pacific strategy, launched an intensive diplomatic and military exercises and other activities in related areas, in this kinds of background, the United States will intervene in the Huangyan Island events? Mr. Qu Xing, the United States has made clear that neutral stance on the island sovereignty, and does not agree to the use of force to solve the problem, he believes that the United States will not support the Philippines.
Qu Xing, said: “the attitude of the United States is now publicly expressed attitude is three points: the first point, for sovereignty over these islands, it holds a neutral position, that is, it does not position; second point international navigation channel in the South China Sea, the freedom of navigation should be guaranteed; Third, the United States does not agree to the use of force to solve the problem. Therefore, these three positions from the United States to analyze things on the Huangyan Island, the Philippines does not necessarily able to get the support of the United States because the Philippines with China in this confrontation, the United States is actually an attitude position, that the United States insisted on such an attitude no position on the island sovereignty issue, and expressed support for the Philippines Huangyan Island the sovereignty of the sound cable. not to use force, not the use of force, in fact, is the Philippines first use of military force it to use military force, the deployment of warships to take action against the Chinese fishermen. This is the first in the use of force, while China sent go boat fishery boat, ocean surveillance ship, these are unworthy of armed civilian law enforcement vessels, in such circumstances, I think the U.S. would not support the Philippines. “
the fourth round of Sino-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue will be held next week in Beijing. Mr. Qu Xing that Huangyan Island, the problem does not become the default topic of the fourth round of Sino-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue. If the United States put forward the incident to find out more, the Chinese side will the truth, the historical basis to make the appropriate introduction. (Li Xiuli Chen Meng)
