This is South China Sea Corps monitoring the implementation of the “2009 11 cruise the South China Sea cruise regularly rights enforcement,” patrol area is the northern South China Sea, the Huangyan Island , Nansha northeast, northwest waters, cruising time for 11 to 22 May.
perform the tasks of the “China Marine Surveillance 81″ boat on a sunny afternoon, from Guangzhou, Cheung Chau pier, towards the first leg of the trip – the sand islands located in the Huangyan Island.
4 days after 9 am, “sea monitoring 81 ‘boat after a long journey has finally approaching the Huangyan Island waters. Huangyan Island Although they are called “island” is essentially a large circular reef, exposed at low tide the water is a few small stones. Circular reefs surrounded the area called the “lagoon”, is a relatively calm waters, the color is lighter than one thousand meters deep to be a lot of glowing shallow blue-green.

vice president of China Marine Surveillance Corps Sea Captain Xuanjin Hai told reporters this year, China’s sea waters near the Huangyan Island prison for a number of cruise, so far, China has carried out the waters near Huangyan Island The patrol has not been any interference in China’s fishing boats fishing near the Huangyan Island also were not carried out to prevent. Reporters on board arrived this morning, maritime surveillance in this area has a half-hour cruise, and ships of the Philippines did not suffer interference.
However, the Huangyan Island did not really like the surface of the calm. Borderland History and Geography Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Research Center, Li Guoqiang, deputy director of the view that the Philippine sovereignty over the Nansha Islands by way of legislation to seize the means of the bilateral dispute is rare that the sovereignty of the Philippines and China compete for the way has been upgraded.
not Nansha do not know how serious the situation
“Nansha addition to Taiping Island, above the surface, vegetated islands are occupied by other countries each cruise through the heart of these islands is particularly sad “
Nansha Islands in China with more than 800,000 square kilometers sea, the distribution of more than 230 islands, reefs, shoals, shoal, which exposed surface and the year round low-tide elevation, but a total of more than 50, most of the neighboring countries were divided, control, Vietnam (29), Philippines (9), Malaysia (5) are stationed on the islands and reefs occupied by the army, the layout of the fire . Stationed in China, only eight reefs (including Taiwan stationed in Taiping Island).
line, and this set of data just stop at the awareness stage, until the deep South China Sea, the reporter was really aware of the occupation of the seriousness of the sovereignty of the South China Sea.
starting the morning after the sixth day, “sea monitoring 81″ approaching the Nansha islands northeast of the fee letter, Ma Huan Island, two islands have been occupied by the Philippines. Two tall houses, buildings and several antennas on the bare letter of the island is clearly visible fee, to uphold the Philippines national flag flying on the beach near the island parked a BUTTERFLY. And Ma Huan dense vegetation on the island, the island’s coconut trees swaying in the wind, the island surrounded by white sandy beaches. Philippine Navy barracks either looming among the trees, should be a beautiful picture.
seventh day, just after 7 am, “sea monitoring 81″ travel to the Nansha Islands sea area northwest of the south key. Suddenly tense atmosphere on board. Prior to passing reefs, sea surveillance of all players are squeezed in a shot, when it was on the port side lookout, was shot in the starboard side. Founder of Taiwan left the ship stationed in the Pacific islands, the Philippines occupying the right front of the South Island and double reed key sandbar.
for the people who first arrived in Nansha, these two have great appeal, the gap between only 17 nautical miles. Just an hour ago, we had just been occupied by the Vietnamese blue ship reefs, shoals London Him. Small radius of less than 10 nautical miles within the area there are so many disputes, the situation is more serious in central and southern Nansha, the South China Sea with China Research Institute of Wushi kept saying, “Nansha has formed interlocking of stalemate.”
reporter also saw the South Island and North sub-sub-dependent island of the two islands, but Vietnam and the Philippines were occupied by the two armed forces stationed on the island, heavily guarded. Maritime surveillance law enforcement officials told reporters that the Nansha Islands and some only 1 away from the sea, at the other side bunker lights clearly visible.
“Nansha addition to Taiping Island, above the surface, vegetated islands are occupied by other countries, each cruise through the heart of these islands is particularly sad.” Xuan Jinhai emotion, our Navy stationed in Nansha seven reefs, are submerged at high tide.
massive construction projects on the islands and reefs in the occupation of neighboring countries
red, blue roof of European architecture and tree-shaded, like China’s developed eastern provinces Some well-off villages on the island each base are equipped with an armed fishing boat
addition to a large number of occupation, the Nansha Islands and neighboring countries for the construction is also very willing to invest. In this cruise, the reporter found, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, the three countries despite the strength are not strong, but at the cost of both building reefs. Among them, the largest investment in Vietnam, the construction of reefs. China Marine Surveillance has organized several cruise, approaching the South Vietnamese occupation sub Island, South Island, 29 islands and reefs, islands and reefs found on the construction of modern, red, blue roof of European architecture and tree-shaded, like our Some wealthy eastern provinces of the village.
“sea monitoring 81″ close to the more sub-accounts for South Island, the reporter saw a number of villas built on the island-type buildings, parked on both sides of the island there are four carriers, seems to shipment of stone.
Xuanjin Hai said that last April he came to cruise along the coast to see the large-scale reclamation works being carried out, the island is operating excavators and dump trucks, parked near the island of nearly 10 one thousand tons class vessel, required for the delivery of the island construction building materials. Through the cruise, discover Vietnam’s Xuan Jinhai reclamation basic drawing to a close, the new construction of a breakwater on the lights neatly set.
China Marine Surveillance departments accounted for 29 more by the power of the analysis found that reefs stationed in Vietnam in the reefs far from home to invest relatively more, the general construction of artificial islands and concrete way of building bases, each base configuration an armed fishing vessels; in some of the major islands, there are a number of armed transport ship guardian and is responsible for supply. In the distance closer to home Wanan Beach, Lee Jun Tan, Chun beaches and other places who, the construction of tall houses on the water, the configuration life is short, fast guard gunboats.
Vietnamese armed boats to our rapidly approaching
has launched two Vietnamese armed boats, to the “sea monitoring 81″ fast approaching, the nearest when only 2.1 nautical miles. This situation is very common
is Yuehua Jian, Kanako three armed escort ships appeared off the island. The more of them armed guard ship “VAN HOA737″, “HQ996″ has launched, the “sea monitoring 81″ fast approaching, the nearest at only 2.1 nautical miles to the crew with a telescope overlooking our side, until the identification of “sea monitoring 81 “before heading north to give up always keep track.
Xuanjin Hai said that the situation is very common, Vietnam, Malaysia, the defense of the islands and reefs occupied quite strict, since 2008, the previous cruise, ocean surveillance ship was stationed in Vietnam encountered troops Ming Island gun warning, discharge of flares and other actions.
April last year, Chinese maritime surveillance patrol near the southern sub-island formation, the island bursts of two red flares warning. Last June, the cruise fleet Qian sandbar near London, its observation deck at the top of the radar antenna suddenly began to turn, the shore in front of large artillery muzzle uniform sea during this period, China Marine Surveillance four law enforcement officers to hear shots … …
talk to reporters while Xuan Jinhai another thrilling story. Last April, Malaysia’s maritime surveillance patrol fleet was approaching the light Sing reef occupied area, the horse began to garrison shouted: “Chinese tracking ship/Chinese ship/white ship, the Royal Malaysian Navy calls, answer.” Formation has not been ignored and continue eastbound. Subsequently, the light Sing out a reef east of the boat, a speed of 26 to the fleet sailed. Subsequently, the formation of the Malaysian military plane flew over, circling at low altitude and formation called “Chinese research vessel, the Chinese research ship” hovering three weeks to leave behind. This situation approaching in formation when Yuya Shoal again.
response or way to build aircraft carrier
China can no longer be a passive response, “the construction of aircraft carriers is necessary, it can act as a deterrent in the event of armed conflict , China will not in a passive position “
divided the waters around the country, occupying the island is only a first step,” their real purpose is to always continue the occupation of these islands and reefs, and as a base, competing interests of more sea power. “Xuanjin Hai said that Vietnam, Indonesia, Brunei has begun in the United States with the help of a large number of mining fisheries, oil and gas resources.
Nanyang Institute of Xiamen University, Professor Li Jinming told the “International Herald Tribune”, Southeast Asian countries on the same interest in the South China Sea, and many U.S. military supplies to go through the South China Sea waterway transport, the South China Sea is an important strategic position, so they will hold together to deal with China.
this regard, Li Jinming suggested that China can no longer be a passive response, “the construction of aircraft carriers is necessary, although the United States and India and other countries ﹑ ﹑ Japan pay close attention to the growth of Chinese naval forces, attempts to suppress the development of the Chinese Navy, but construction of aircraft carriers can act as a deterrent, in the event of armed conflict, China will not in a passive position. “
