Three months before the March 20, Indonesia, Africa and France were detained for up to 13 months of four Chinese fishermen, Chinese Ambassador to Indonesia in the continued efforts of institutions, only just released.
In fact, the growing controversy in the South China Sea in the context of the South China Sea countries in the unlawful purpose of controlling the South China Sea I frequently take the Chinese fishermen surgery, ranging from detained persons, confiscation of property, while in shooting hurt life.
Indonesia tone is still strong
Indonesia, according to media reports, Chinese fishermen are being hosted in the city of Pontianak in Indonesia Marine and Fisheries within the Authority, said the fishermen detained place in March this year to complete, can accommodate about 100 people.
Indonesia “Jakarta Globe,” claimed that these Chinese fishing boats not only did not go through legal procedures, but also prohibited the illegal use by the local trawl fishing, the fishermen of these are in addition to snatch face high fines, will also be detained for some time, and so on.

fishermen catch me very popular

the same time, according to Chinese aquaculture sector GPS positioning system shows that China seized eight fishing boats were in Chinese traditional fishing grounds, such as Indonesia did not say, “the agency violated Indonesia’s economic zone” . Indonesia before the fact by default, but the high-profile move to snatch it is a Chinese fishing boat suddenly.
Borderland History and Geography Research Center of Chinese Academy of Social deputy director Li Guoqiang, told “International Herald Tribune”, “in fact arrest the fishermen of neighboring countries is very popular.” Renowned historian as the South China Sea, Li Guoqiang has repeatedly went to the South China Sea research, according to his understanding, in Qionghai Tam Mun Town has some of the arrested fishermen have not been released.

is to strengthen the motivation behind The so-called “sovereignty”

Clearly, the South China Sea around the state frequently arrest of Chinese fishermen’s purpose is to strengthen the South China Sea so-called” sovereignty oath. “This is the South China Sea South China Sea, neighboring countries, an important part of the strategy, but also they occupation of the South China Sea waters a valid interest in the “trump card.” Li Guoqiang, researcher believes that the Chinese fishermen detained in Indonesia such behavior will have a significant impact on the one hand to the development of relations between the two countries created a problem; the other hand, the behavior of Indonesia played a bad role model.
the South China Sea policy rights to be first
“International Herald Tribune” correspondent from Beijing gold micro-frequency fisheries resources in the South China Sea swallowed by the surrounding, neighboring countries, the South China Sea by Chinese fishermen armed vessels harassment, how should China do?

So, the Chinese navy in the South China Sea South China Sea predicament is the lack of effective containment of the military do?
However, the Chinese Academy of Borderland History and Geography Research Center, Li Guoqiang, deputy director of the Chinese navy in the South do not think the lack of military means. He told the newspaper pointed out that currently, China’s military does not lose any country around the South China Sea, the People’s Navy has enough power to maintain the sovereignty and interests. The question is “shelving disputes and seeking common development” principle does not fall real place, even failure.
interview of an anonymous Navy has deep feelings for this person, he said that China’s policy for the South China Sea is actually a fuzzy state, “We South China Sea, there is no clear policy, we do not know if even the cake where it will be clear how a knife how to draw. South China Sea must be a policy first. “
escort for the sound implementation of fisheries, Li Guoqiang that law enforcement agencies naturally escort duties, but all day long and can not send its ships to follow as law enforcement agencies, according to normal procedures of law enforcement, sworn sovereign to protect the fishermen while fishing should be in accordance with the law to catch fish. “Currently, the Standing Committee is considered the” Island Protection Act “, this may be forthcoming law, strengthen and consolidate our position of sovereignty in the South China Sea is of great significance . “
