Reporter: March 9, the U.S. Defense Department on China and the United States vessels in the confrontation between the South China Sea to China protested, saying that China ships to the escalating provocation, reached its peak. No. 10, Chinese Foreign Ministry that hard to refute, the U.S. provoked the United States on Chinese ships to monitor the ship’s allegations, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma towards the continued (sound) argument is a serious criticism of the United States contrary to the facts and wrong. He also said that if the Navy surveillance ship Impeccable without China’s permission, the Chinese exclusive economic zone for illegal activities, violated international law and Chinese law, what would you evaluate this matter?
Jin Yinan: We first say in this matter is not strange happened today. We had previously repeatedly warned the U.S. proposed that the United States, this variety of reconnaissance, surveying ship in the China activities within the exclusive economic zone, very close to China’s territorial waters, China’s national sovereignty is not only a provocative behavior, and is severely damaged, and the impact of China’s national security interests. China demands the U.S. side to stop the investigation of China’s coastal areas, on this situation, we have repeatedly made representations with the United States have been prior, we see this event occurred in early March.
we conducted in late February when the U.S. Department of Defense conference, has repeatedly talked about the issue, said the U.S. vessels should not be in China’s maritime exclusive economic zone this investigation. Those who carried out this way, you should leave immediately, otherwise the resultant problems, the U.S. should take responsibility. Now turn the United States raised protests in China, we say this protest is unjustified. We say that any country, its maritime rights and interests, first of all look at our range from the sea is 12 nautical miles territorial sea, this is our sovereignty.
12 海里 and 12 nautical mile is adjacent to outside economic zones, economic zones adjacent to a sovereign state is capable of independent maritime law enforcement, the U.S. ship activities, he said, from about 120 km away from us, we say Even if he said exactly this position, he also no doubt in China 200 sea miles within the exclusive economic zone. Our addition to the 12-mile territorial sea, economic zone adjacent to 12 sea miles, 200 nautical miles exclusive economic zone, we say that the United Nations under the Convention on Law of the Sea, in the exclusive economic zone, any other vessels, including merchant you, including warships have adopted the right, but this is the right of innocent passage through.
I think we should pay attention to these two issues, is the first one is through, you are not in the presence of through. So the United States aboard the oceanographic survey ship, he resides in this place, it stops at this place does not move, he engaged in a variety of ocean exploration, temperature probe, probe currents, and a variety of sound reflection sea, sonar detection, including a variety of techniques to detect. Actually pose a great threat to our security. He is not through, he is resident.
second United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea, through the requirement is also limited, not to say that any form of adoption. United Nations Law of the Sea Convention is very clear that, called innocent passage. Is your national security of the sovereign state Ye Hao, Ye Hao its economic interests, the interests of its political and military interests are not a direct threat and interference, then this can be called innocent passage. We say that the United States, neither by sea research vessel, still less harmless passed.
then in such circumstances, I think this behavior is not the issue, said U.S. protests, the first question should be our protest.
Commentary: According to reports, no time is the number five U.S. Navy ocean surveillance ships, one was built in March 1992, the main use of underwater acoustic detectors to obtain ocean temperature data and to detect and track submarine service in other countries. Impeccable belongs to the U.S. Navy sealift Command has 25 kinds of special vessels, the Pentagon and other U.S. government’s mission to provide support.
Jin Yinan: our behavior on the U.S. side of this ocean of protest, never stop. We say that since last year and this year China and the U.S. Department of Defense U.S. Department of Defense to meet the working meeting, Chinese representatives have made this issue a very serious negotiations. With the words of the United States are very heavy, so in this case, the United States went on a stick to their behavior, we say that these, if the consequences as we have said in the talks the two sides, thus the consequences of should be responsible by the United States, no doubt.
so we can see, the United States to a country other countries, sovereign state coastal surveillance behavior, let us say just for China. He is truly a global behavior. Where in the world, he has significant strategic interests he thinks the place, he should do it. The second American to conduct such acts, he acts on their own this package, although we say that some packaging is not very clever. Can even be said to be very poor, the United States proposed the United States does not recognize the United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea, does not recognize that all countries have a 200-mile exclusive economic zones, such rights and interests, so that he did not admit that in the United Nations Convention on the Exclusive Economic Zone under the vessels within the so-called right of innocent passage, he simply does not recognize.
told him what the reason is? He said there is a road in front of your yard, you can not block this road, the only way that you are Chinese, other vehicles can not pass. He said this road is everyone’s, we go through. Then we had to refute, we say you are not the problem through, you climb inside the entrance courtyard, others spy. What we oppose is the behavior you pry, you is not through the act. You spy on behavior, we say that in this case, you say to explain how the United States. He did not much reason, he explained that it was our routine behavior that is not a presidential decision, the U.S. military must do it.
from this small problem, in fact you can see, the world’s behavior and the face of such hegemony. I see very clearly that the U.S. national interest is the highest point, there is no reason to compile a reason, the core is to maintain America’s national interests, its national interests embodied in this, he maintained that he believes that the future strength of these growth Soon, the state is fully part of the investigation, including marine, space satellites, this investigation, as well as human intelligence collection, maintaining complete control of the country’s dynamic, and vital U.S. national interests. This is what we can see today, although the U.S. has a very large cross-interests, the interests of the exchange. But the U.S. containment of China, to prevent one day did not stop.
Reporter: As you just said, the United States dispatched military ships and aircraft in addition to the Chinese coastal waters of spying has taken a variety of ways, including space for investigation of China, and was our national security to those alerts?
Jin Yinan: This is a small phenomenon. We found him on the ocean, the occurrence of such conflict. We say that the United States to pick the big things, he said he would like to protest in China, the U.S. government to express displeasure, and we know. Rights of the sea like this fact, almost every day doing. We in the East, nor in the Yellow Sea, South China Sea, Huaihai can see our maritime surveillance department, we maritime patrol boats, maritime patrol aircraft, they are very hard. There is space, of course, we say that the space problem may be more complex. Because when the U.S. oceanographic survey ship that arrived in my coastal areas through the investigation, we can fully grasp the proof that you are in my 200 sea miles along the coast within the exclusive economic zone, your activity is a violation of United Nations Law of the Sea Convention, we can learn from perspective of international law, sovereign rights and obligations from the perspective of the United States made a very favorable criticism.
and this sovereign state can not protest for me, because I activities in the international public space. This is our security is facing new problems. Say today, for a sovereign country, just to maintain the territorial sea, territory, airspace security, has been unable to cope with this situation today. We can look at the situation today, not just the 12-mile territorial sea, it is 100 km away from us in our local activities, in fact, has violated my exclusive economic zone, not to mention space. Now the space above you like a year after the Chinese military reconnaissance satellites, remote sensing satellite, a variety of satellite nine thousand times, the number is very intensive.
today the use of satellite technology in the international public space, over the same time he can shoot very clear image of the surface. Including the major ports, bridges, roads, tunnels can be patted very clear. Well, this is to give us a today, than in the past, the more complex and more difficult to maintain it’s such a security task.1 2 Next
