China news agency reporter Zeng Jia
11th Asian Security Summit will be held in Singapore on June 1, outsiders predict the South China Sea issue will again be the focus, and even the media that support in the United States, “the anger in Southeast Asia representative will gang siege China”. In this regard, China Contemporary International Relations Institute scholar Chen Qinghong said, “under siege” “exaggerated, after all, the South China Sea issue is just part of the security in Asia, most Asian countries hope that the development of stable relations with China.
Asia Security Summit, sponsored by the UK Department for International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Singapore government support due in 2002, the first official meeting was held at Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore, it is also known as Shangri-La Dialogue. This year’s conference, attended by 28 Asia-Pacific countries, the United States, Britain, France, Russian officials also will attend the meeting.
a time when China and the continued stalemate in the Huangyan Island, the Philippines, Japan sent warships in the sensitive time visit to the Philippines, India also has four warships to move into the South China Sea. A background of the U.S. military magazine “Defense News” magazine said the United States at this meeting renewed commitment to protect its allies in the Asia-Pacific, the South China Sea dispute is this dialogue, the “key”. Pre-Panetta went to the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii, followed by visit to Vietnam, India, and his being viewed as the United States is trying to strengthen links with the Asia-Pacific allies.
Chen Qinghong, an interview with the China news agency reporter, said that the organizers have announced the issue, the protection of freedom of navigation “is one of the topics of the summit, in the current situation, the South China Sea issue is the focus can not be avoided. But for the intervention by the U.S. intent to China stressed that the multi-faceted bilateral negotiations to resolve the dispute, participants should be the most direct stakeholders of the event.
the same time, the United States has been trying to promote the development of the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea, ASEAN countries and China to multilateral mechanisms involved in the South China Sea issue. But the United States is not the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea “Member States, can not with ASEAN and other allies in the common law on the basis of coordination in an awkward position.
more importantly, Asian countries want to maintain a stable relationship with China, to develop economic and trade exchanges in various fields. “Chen Qinghong said that most of the participating countries are not parties of the South China Sea issue,” trip this Tanghun Shui does not meet their national interests, after all, “Shangri-La Dialogue” is not the South China Sea Dialogue “, and the containment of China, the intensification of the South China Sea issue is not conducive to the Asia-Pacific stability and economic development of the region,” the so-called emergence ‘siege’ situation, an exaggeration! “
example, he said, India’s interest in oil and gas fields in the South China Sea, Japan’s concern lies in the East China Sea gas field development, and stimulate the Chinese and upgrade the tensions is not conducive to their interests achieved.
is worth noting that, in the Philippines two defense ministers have been cooling for the South China Sea dispute. Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister Liang in the ASEAN secretary of defense on the May 28 meeting with Philippine Defense Secretary Jia Siming, both sides agree that the two defense departments in dealing with sensitive issues at the same time, I hope to continue to maintain communication in order to facilitate the promotion of issues related to peaceful and reasonable settlement.
even if the United States backed by its Asia-Pacific allies also has its own intention to form a consensus seems quite difficult. Global strategy and change consulting company Chairman Paul? South Korea only care about? The Jarrah analysis pointed out that the Asia Pacific League of the United States vulnerable and showing faults, the U.S. Asia-Pacific partners with a common threat, there is no common view of the region: Japan reluctant to take on more responsibility for their own defense, or too dependent on the U.S.; North Korea constitutes a threat; India to focus on border issues with China and Pakistan; Philippines is a “financial burden” of the United States; Although Vietnam has the potential to become the United States Asia-Pacific allies, but the difference is huge.
