Vietnam’s third consecutive weekend of anti-China protest Some demonstrators shouted “Down with China” like the fierce slogans. Tight control of demonstrations in Vietnam, this continuous public protest is considered very rare. The occasion of tension with China, Vietnam, the ED also a step by the United States, 17 countries issued a joint statement calling for the South China Sea, “freedom of navigation”, and the bilateral relations to explore “strategic level.” In the Philippines, stressed the official side of peace, hard to one side or the South China Sea issue to the United Nations and other ASEAN to push more on the table. Some media in the country is trying to depict China in various shades of “bully” image, and some even China and Hitler and the “Japanese imperialism” link. Research Institute of Xiamen University, Nanyang village land 19 of the “Global Times” said the South China Sea is a long-term stalemate, laissez-faire and even the use of anti-Chinese sentiment in Vietnam and the Philippines is very dangerous, because they are more dependent on China, if the friction upgrade hurt the most will be their own.
more official acquiescence or a calculated?
19, according to the Associated Press reported that about 300 people gathered that day Chinese embassy in Vietnam in Hanoi front street demonstrations, chanting anti-China slogans demanding that the Chinese from Vietnam’s territorial waters. Also broke out in southern Ho Chi Minh City the day of demonstrations. “I came here to defend the nation against the Chinese invasion,” said 82-year-old Nguyen Long. He participated in the 1979 Sino-Vietnam border conflict. “I believe we heard people inside the embassy shouting” Down with China! ‘”Agence France-Presse reported that the number of demonstrators have hundreds of people, police than demonstrators number more than. “East China Sea (ie the South China Sea) is not China’s pond, I came here that my patriotic stance.” One demonstrator said. Police acknowledged the protesters’ patriotic spirit, “while loudspeakers on the demonstrators, said:” gathered here will lead to complicate the situation, affecting diplomatic relations. “
the outside public view, for China has been Vietnam protesters apparently official acquiescence. The Associated Press said that demonstrations are extremely rare in Vietnam, if any, are usually quickly dispersed by security personnel, but the escalating dispute with the South China Sea, Hanoi in the past three Sundays to allow anti-China demonstrations. “Los Angeles Times” said the South China Sea conflict in Vietnam led to a large outbreak of anti-Chinese, the Vietnamese government by the national media and public opinion and nationalist demands against Chinese pressure.
Other analysts believe that China’s hostility catharsis is the Vietnamese government’s “careful calculation.” Japan’s “Yomiuri Shimbun” reported that China’s anger comes pouring the occasion of Vietnam’s inflation remains high, prices and other commodity prices rose by 15% this year, causing public discontent. Vietnamese government seems calculated to affect the stability of the regime of this dissatisfaction, if taken to reconcile the position of China, will lead to increased dissatisfaction. Vietnam appears to have taken a confrontational stance on the domestic situation considerations.
escalation of the conflict to Vietnam, South China Sea and proximity to the United States a step. 19 Vietnam News Network reported that Vietnam and the United States 17, the fourth held in Washington, political, security and defense dialogue, both sides called for freedom of the seas, against the use of force in the South China Sea. The two countries also put the Vietnam-US relations to enhance the strategic partnership were discussed. 18, Bloomberg reported that the United States and Vietnam in the South China Sea, the joint statement referred to the recent “disturbing events” and stressed that the South China Sea and stability of the international community’s “common interests.” Proposal last week condemned China’s “use of force” in the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on East Asian and Public Affairs, Mr Webb said: “The current United States-Vietnam relations are very good, in a sense, the issue of sovereignty in fact contribute to the South China Sea between us relationship, they understand that we have common interests. “
AFP commented that, although memories of war still fresh in the rapid improvement of relations between the United States and Vietnam, an important reason for this is tension between Beijing and Hanoi, Vietnam painful memories from China to Vietnam for thousands of years of rule. Singapore’s “Today online,” said the global strategic balance as a sign of change, the rise of China in Vietnam and the United States and other countries caused concerns prompted two former enemies repaired. Vietnam also has the media advocating the side of the international community with its own Vietnam “Youth” website to “the international community to support Vietnam in the East China Sea dispute,” the title says, many experts support the position of Vietnam, the Australian Defense Force Academy Vietnam expert Carl Gentile said: “If the local state threatened or bullied by China, the United States will give political and diplomatic support, but the bottom line is that the Philippines and Vietnam to defend the exclusive economic zone must rely on their own sovereignty.”
Philippines said the agreement with the multinational
“Remember when we go to school when the class bully it? Each class has its own bully.” Philippines “Sun Star” trying to use this analogy the Chinese described as “bullies.” The paper, with a similar school bullies, the history of Nazi Germany’s Hitler, “Blitzkrieg” swept the entire European continent, France and Britain could do was wait and see. Japan also invaded China and most Southeast Asian countries in an attempt to establish the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. China is now powerful, the 1.3 billion Chinese people we sneeze, may be enough to trigger a tsunami engulfed the whole country. We can not help but ask ourselves, if we do not the Americans from Subic Bay and Clark Bay off, will the situation different? Perhaps the Chinese will not be so reckless on the Spratly Islands dispute to bully the Philippines and did not worry about retaliation.
similar sentiment in the Philippines is very popular, but the government did not “soft” means, but frequent moves. According to the “Philippine Daily Inquirer,” 19 reported that Philippine President Corazon Aquino III told the Associated Press, warned China not to violate the Philippine territorial waters, saying the Philippines “will not because it is small and mercy.” According to AFP, the Philippine armed forces chief of staff said the 19 Olympic classes, send naval flagship to the disputed waters, “Raja Hu Ma Bang” number, in order to strengthen maritime law enforcement. He also said that the ship will cross the Philippines, 200 sea miles exclusive economic zone, not armed conflict.
getting other countries to support the Philippine diplomatic focus. “Philippine Star,” 19 said 13 to 17 June United Nations Headquarters on “United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea,” 21st Conference of the Parties, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos and Singapore agreed in six countries , called for peaceful means, according to the “United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea” to resolve disputes in the South China Sea. 18 Philippine presidential palace, said China’s commitment to avoid conflict, therefore, according to the principles of the multilateral dispute settlement in some regions the South China Sea that China will not be disturbed. “Manila Bulletin”, said at the meeting, the Philippine government asked the South China Sea to follow the law, opposing the expansion of territorial disputes.
“difficult people in a war with rival China, the Philippines, how people can do?” “Manila Standard TODAY” gives the answer is sure to internationalize the Nansha Islands. The newspaper said Monday that Western colonizers have used “Chinese man’s opportunity” to describe the humble Chinese coolie in the development of the western United States paved the situation of the tracks. In Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan times before, Hollywood is not a chef in the Chinese Laundry is a craftsman. In the Philippines, Chinese bun, and was only selling “horse face”, Chinese and China have now turned itself. The face of China, the expansion of military and economic giant, the Philippines, the only option is the United Nations, The Hague, and all are willing to accept an international forum we will prosecute to internationalize the Nansha Islands. If this alone can promote the ASEAN summit on the South China Sea dispute is greatly in line with the interests of the Philippines.
Research Institute of Xiamen University, Nanyang village Land 19, “Global Times” interview, said that Vietnam and the Philippines is not China’s rival, so trying to do everything possible to internationalize the South China Sea, South China Sea is showing deadlock a long-term characteristics. Everyone involved in the issue of territorial waters will not easily go back, but the use of anti-China sentiment on both countries and is also a double-edged sword, if the continued accumulation of hostility, it is easy to control. And that the two countries are economically dependent on China’s large, much larger than the Chinese demand for them, if the friction upgrade, I’m afraid they are the most injured.
“accidental discharge is a normal”
19 pm, a white wheel into Singapore port, the bow, “China Marine” message eye-catching. This is causing widespread concern and foreign media in China Maritime flagship “Coast Guard 31″ number. The occasion of tension, “Coast Guard 31″ was successfully crossing the South China Sea, arrived in Singapore. “Philippine Star,” said Coast Guard vessel to visit China new occasion, the United States, “Bell goes” missile destroyer is Singapore’s Changi Naval Base to prepare for the June 28, the waters of Palawan in the Philippines at the 2011 “sea combat readiness and cooperation in training “joint exercises. “I guess now many eavesdropping, surveillance and counter-surveillance activities have been launched.” Anonymous, said an officer.
China before the arrival of Coast Guard ships, National University of Singapore Research Center of International Law held a entitled “The South China Sea and the joint development” meeting, from many countries, nearly 200 scholars attended the meeting . “Global Times” reporter has learned that the message is that atmosphere of the meeting against China, almost all foreign scholars have criticized China’s speech, few people are willing to speak on behalf of China. A Chinese scholar said: “Although China’s national strength has grown rapidly, but China in the international community’s voice is too weak, especially in the South China Sea issue.”
Chinese National Defense University professor Zhang Zhaozhong 19, “Global Times “reporter, said the South China Sea since the mid-1970s highlights to now, China has been relatively tolerant, because the Chinese understand that the South China Sea in order to solve in a short time, can only resort to force or the international tribunal to resolve , the former who also want to see, while the latter has cost too much. Now, with the adjustment of U.S. strategy, the South China Sea situation is changing, which makes the pressure on China to increase.
Zhang Zhaozhong said that the Chinese principle of peaceful settlement of disputes will not change the South China Sea, China would not provoke a major war, but China will not let the South China Sea issue be delayed indefinitely. China should strengthen the marine law enforcement, not be so anxious to solve problems quickly, but we can not allow new problems from recurring, such as new oil, new islands occupied events. China can not bow to U.S. pressure from outside. “As law enforcement accidental discharge occurred during the event, it is inevitable and normal, China has the ability to withstand the friction.” ▲
