Expert: violation of my territorial sovereignty of countries to provoke an anti-system once
tree may prefer calm while the wind blows. June 21, the Vietnamese National Assembly passed the “Vietnam Law of the Sea”, insisted on the Xisha and Nansha Islands is included in the so-called Vietnam “sovereignty” and “jurisdiction” within the infringement upon China’s territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests in a barely veiled way, the intensification of Vietnam contradictions and the situation in the South China Sea, the overall situation of confrontation with their own in-Vietnam relations and regional cooperation. Following a few days ago to send fighters to patrol reconnaissance of China’s Nansha Islands, Vietnam, China’s territorial sovereignty of another provocation, nature is extremely poor.
Vietnamese legislation ignoring the fact that a serious breach of the principles of international law and the spirit. Both from a historical perspective, or a legal point of view, the Xisha and Nansha Islands are Chinese territory. Even the last century from the 1950s, the Vietnamese official statement, as well as the textbook in 1974, Vietnam admitted that the Xisha and Nansha Islands are Chinese territory. Vietnam hands of the pitiful, not even on the table a few so-called sovereignty of the evidence is no legal basis, simply do not form a valid basis in international law as a basis to engage in out of a domestic law of the sea and any action taken pursuant to are illegal and invalid.
Vietnamese legislative inconsistencies, a serious breach of the leaders of the consensus and the “spirit of the” Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea between China and Vietnam. October last year, the Vietnamese leaders during his visit, the two countries issued a joint statement on the basic principles of the agreement made it clear that “the two sides adhere to properly handle and solve the maritime issues through friendly consultations, guide the resolution of the Vietnam maritime issues,” the ultimate in the maritime dispute resolved, the two sides to jointly safeguard peace and stability in the South China Sea, calm and restraint and not take the dispute to complicate or escalate action “. “Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea,” the provisions of Article 5, “the commitment of the parties to exercise self-restraint, and do not take the dispute would complicate or escalate and affect peace and stability operations”. The above-mentioned Declaration and consensus words are still ringing in our ears, the ink was dry, Vietnam’s legislative acts in direct violation of the above principles, the spirit and provisions. This suggests that the lack of sincerity in meeting the leaders of the two consensus and the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, Vietnam.
Vietnamese legislation selfishness, we can only lift a rock only to drop it on their own feet. Vietnam has proposed a 2020 maritime strategy, and has been brewing in the maritime legislation, the legislation was an attempt to form of law to the main content of its maritime strategy to include, for the fabrication of the Paracel Islands dispute, curing the so-called “sovereignty of Nansha provide a legal basis, and by legal form to strengthen the occupation of my reefs to provide a shot in the arm violation of maritime rights and interests. However, the “wrongful act does not create legal rights is a basic principle of international law. If the Vietnamese wears a self-made “legitimate” coat, to go against the Chinese reefs in the South China Sea territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests, to obstruct the normal development of the Xisha and Nansha Islands in Chinese business and law enforcement jurisdiction, only the South China Sea issue is more complex, serious, planted the seeds of more trouble, and even lead to more conflict, friction, in the end can only ask for it.
China has always advocated the settlement of international disputes by peaceful means, at the same time in the maintenance of national territorial sovereignty issues are never ambiguous.
far not said that, since 2010, China has become a sea of ??peace, friendship and cooperation to make the South China Sea, Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership in the development and safeguard regional peace and stability, made its own positive contribution. In the face of individual countries for the occasion of the provocation of China’s territorial sovereignty, China also will not concede. Huangyan Island event is a case in point.
necessary to make clear that individual countries on the issue of territorial sovereignty, the provocation to China, China will be its infringement space compression time, until it quit.
