It is noteworthy that the advent of this book coincided with the Vietnamese National Assembly has just approved the occasion of the Vietnam Law of the Sea “.
Vietnam Communication Media Publishing House issued written about the East China Sea from the the Renchen Gong axis before the Vietnamese Government Boundary Commission asked questions called “the East China Sea, Vietnam mark,” a book. The advent of this book coincided with the Vietnamese National Assembly has just approved the occasion of the Vietnam Law of the Sea “.
this book up to 400 contains four chapters. The first chapter introduces the role of the ocean and islands of Vietnam in the national economy, national defense and security affairs. In the second chapter, the author, according to the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, to define Vietnam’s marine areas and continental shelf, especially in the scope of the exclusive economic zone a solid legal basis to prove that Vietnam in its territorial waters, continental shelf and expertise economic zones sovereignty and jurisdiction. Chapter III provides an overview of Vietnam three or four centuries ago, began to establish and exercise the sovereignty of the history of the Islands (in Changsha, China’s Nansha Islands) and Hoang Sa archipelago (ie, the Paracel Islands). The final chapter describes the real situation of the East China Sea dispute, and mention some possible solutions.the
“Convention on the Law of the Sea” is not used to solve the Spratly Islands dispute
book of Chen Public axis has also repeatedly stressed that use the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea ” to solve the South China Sea dispute. However, the Convention on the Law of the Sea must be guidelines and preferred it? Terry S. Ng deposit of confrontation and the author of this book had the South China Sea Research Institute, said the “Law of the Sea Convention does not apply to solve the problem of ownership of the territory.
Terry S. Ng deposit: Chen public axis, I know the time of the negotiations on the demarcation of the Beibu Gulf in the 1990s we had an opponent, he was the director of Vietnam’s National Border Committee, has long been either a book, either the author, against the South China Sea and China. It seems from some of the articles he wrote, should be said that he was in Vietnam a radical anti-China elements. This book, he proposed using the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, “the complaint Vietnam’s claims in the Xisha and Nansha, which is absurd, because the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea” is only applicable to the settlement of maritime disputes, it does not change the corresponding provisions of the ownership of the territory. In this sense, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, “it can not resolve the Spratly Islands dispute between China and Vietnam.
the South China Sea since ancient times the Chinese territory of intent to mislead international public opinion >
as early as the Western Han Dynasty (202 BC), the ancient Chinese in the navigation to find the land in the South China Sea and began to engage in the fisheries and production activities. Wan Zhen of the Three Kingdoms period, the book “Southern states foreign body” is well-founded, clearly describes the style of this piece of geographical features. But I do not know the Vietnam of this book up to 400, and what content can be convincing? !
of Chen Public axis in the third chapter of the book is so described: “Vietnam began three or four centuries ago, the establishment and exercise of sovereignty over the Nansha Islands and the Paracel Islands.” This is a fact? Chinese Academy of Social Sciences of Southeast Asian Studies Center, deputy director Xu Liping takes us back a few centuries ago, brushed aside this layer of the fog of history.
Xu Liping: the earliest records of the South China Sea should be in the Eastern Han Dynasty of ancient books has been, when the South China Sea known as the “rising sea”, the Qing government has long been the administrative jurisdiction of the South China Sea Islands and painted more than a dozen pieces of the official South China Sea islands administrative map. Later scholars on the basis of the history of Vietnam research, Vietnam they called the South China Sea East China Sea, in fact, some of the names, not on the historical basis for what he said today the South China Sea islands and reefs of place names, but the Vietnamese offshore reefs of the names, so this is a mistake to say, in fact, mislead the international public opinion and international academics, this argument is untenable.
Vietnam in the South China Sea, a little trick frequently want the opportunity to transfer the internal contradictions
really seen the South China Sea did not give up. ” In recent years, Vietnam is trying to find experts, the high cost to employ Western scholars, looking for historical and legal basis for the Vietnamese presence in the South China Sea. In addition, Vietnam in the South China Sea issue is a little trick constantly, including what hidden reason? The South China Sea, dean of Terry S. Ng kept this detailed analysis.
Terry S. Ng deposit: I can only think in the South China Sea, Vietnam anxious. First, international in its favor; second, behind the United States also need to Vietnam in the South China Sea and China, said things to contend with China; a United States hopes to take the opportunity to return to the Asia-Pacific. Shangri-La Dialogue in early June, U.S. Secretary of Defense the first time in 30 years after first visit to Vietnam’s Cam Ranh Bay, the United States want to rent Cam Ranh Bay, to strengthen its military presence of the South China Sea to counter China’s rise, especially in the western Pacific. This matter behind the shadow of the United States, Vietnam and the United States each strategic needs, the South China Sea has become an important starting point.
in the Southeast Asia Research Centre deputy director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Xu Liping opinion, the Vietnam action frequently, in fact, there is transfer of the consideration of its internal contradictions.
Xu Liping: Since December 2011, Vietnam’s economy, social security is not very stable. Economically speaking, it’s economic growth is clearly slowing down, its industrial development index in the first half of 2012 fell by 46 percent over the same period last year, and many factories closed down, unemployment to population growth. In remote areas, poor people has increased significantly. And ethnic minority areas of the northwest emerging so-called “separatist movement”, Vietnam’s social order is also showing a worsening trend. So the whole, the Vietnam’s domestic situation is not very good, the Vietnamese government to attempt to divert domestic attention.
