Our army will be: the Philippines, if it continues to trouble down the end will be very embarrassing
in recent months, the Philippine government reached its occupation of the Huangyan Island an attempt an attempt to mislead, claiming that Huangyan Island is its territory. In the case of lack of U.S. support to choose sides and ASEAN will not be a stand, the Philippines angrily made many unwise move, such as the clamor to be launched in the United States, Canada, Australia, Italy, Japan and other countries of the Philippines Overseas in these countries cities on the Chinese protests, but also to the proceedings of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. The Chinese side is necessary to refute the Huangyan Island is a territory of the Philippines lie to the international audio-visual.
Huangyan Island is the South China Sea Dongsha Islands, the only part exposed surface of the atoll, formed within an area of ??130 square kilometers, the depth of 10-20 meters of the lagoon, the southeastern end of a wide 400 m, 9-11 m deep channel off the coast connected to medium-sized fishing boats and small ships can thus access. China first discovered the yellow rocks, 1279 Kublai Khan had sent the astronomers GuoShouJing universally mapping “, the measurement points on the election in the Huangyan Island, which is a traditional fishing ground of Chinese fishermen. In January 1935, the amphibious Map Review Committee will be the Huangyan Island included in the territory of China, in 1947 and again in 1983, naming the Huangyan Island. After the founding of new China, Huangyan Island a number of scientific investigation and the establishment of sovereignty flag. Judging from the geological structure, the Huangyan Island is a natural extension of the Chinese continental shelf, China has indisputable sovereignty over the Huangyan Island.
history, the Spanish occupation of the Philippines in 1565. 1898, the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, Spain was defeated, the signing of the “beauty Xi Bali Treaty, the Philippines became U.S. territories. The Philippines in 1942 was occupied by Japan. After World War II, the Philippines is still the U.S.. 1946 Philippine declaration of independence. 1898 “America Xi Bali Treaty and in 1900 the United States and Western Washington Treaty, the US-British Treaty of 1930 explicitly provides that the Philippines is in the east of longitude 118 ° and Huangyan Island is located at latitude 15 ° 17 ‘ longitude 117 ° 51 ‘, in the west of the Philippine homeland. 1947 US-Philippine general relationship between the Treaty, the 1952 US-Philippine military alliance treaty, Philippine Section 3046 of the territorial sea baseline Act and the 1968 Philippine territorial waters baseline correction law in 1961, have reiterated the three international conventions the force of law once again express provision of the Philippine territorial limits of the Philippine baseline point and baseline were not including the Huangyan Island. 1981, the maps published in the Philippines in 1984, Huangyan Island standard in the Philippine territory outside the boundaries. These historical facts fully prove that Huangyan Island is Chinese territory, but not the Philippines fabricated Philippine territory.
the last century, 90 years ago, the international community, including China with the sovereignty of the Huangyan Island, the Philippines has never raised any objection. June 17, 1986, Deng Xiaoping met with Philippine Vice President Salvador Laurel, the issue of the South China Sea Islands, and now many of the world map can prove that the South China Sea Islands belong to China. April 16, 1988, Deng Xiaoping met with Philippine President Corazon Aquino pointed out that, on the authority of the map marked South Sea Islands have been under the control of the Philippine public opinion also mentioned this. Philippine Vice President, the President is no objection. 1992, the Philippines, the former national security adviser, Gele Si claimed Huangyan Island is a territory of the Philippines, which began to stir up territorial disputes in the Huangyan Island. 1993, the Philippines island of illegal surveying, inspection, patrol. In 1997, the Philippine Navy to destroy China’s sovereignty flag. In June 2009, the Philippines maps published before the Huangyan Island and even the Nansha Islands included in its territory.
Philippines proposes the main reason is that the requirements of sovereignty over the Huangyan Island Huangyan Island is within its 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic zone. But the land to rule the waves, the basic principles of international law of the sea. The United Nations International Convention on the Law of the Sea allows coastal States to establish a 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic zone, but clearly states: “the coastal State has no right to the detriment of the inherent territorial sovereignty of other countries.”
In summary, Philippines claimed that with sovereignty of the Huangyan Island, is totally untenable. Philippine own creation farce, even though its allies also difficult to clearly choose sides to support it. Huangyan Island is China’s inherent territory, irrefutable historical evidence, not to be the Philippines tampering. Advise the Philippine government to end the farce of this importune! Continue to go downtown, can only make their fate more embarrassing. ▲ (The writer is former vice president of the Academy of Military Sciences, the People’s Liberation Army Lieutenant General)
