Russian media said the Chinese if military retaliation for Vietnam to look at US-Russian reaction
June 23, the Chinese Navy’s South Sea Fleet destroyer detachment gun, missile fleet air defense training , testing the ship’s defensive capabilities. The picture shows the detachment of the destroyer fired flares in defense scenarios.
Russia’s “Herald” on July 12, the original title: China – Vietnam: began to compete for the continental shelf from the beginning of this month, the EU began to stop oil imports from Iran. At present, China and India are Iran’s largest oil demand for the country. But with the increasingly tense situation in the Middle East, China is stepping up efforts to find new energy suppliers.
6 end of CNOOC announced for bidding on the nine oil blocks in the South China Sea. But the problem is that Gazprom and ExxonMobil are these blocks in the oil and gas exploration, and very successful. The two companies is obtained from the hands of the Vietnamese Government control block exploration license. In this regard, the Government of Vietnam and the Vietnam National Oil Company, the CNOOC tender should be immediately canceled, because of this threat to the sovereignty of Vietnam, the above-mentioned tender block is located in the extension zone of the continental shelf of Vietnam. Since then, there is news that the warships in China and Vietnam build-up to the disputed area.
the beginning of the year, the U.S. announced that its foreign policy focus to Asia-Pacific region. At present, China is trying to control the U.S. Exxon Mobil Corporation is the mineral block. As a result, the U.S. fleet will protect their company, which may lead to large-scale military conflict. Importantly, holding what position Russia in this conflict? On the one hand, Russia and China are the partner countries within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization this year, the spring between the two navies held a joint military exercise. The other hand, blocks oath sovereignty in China, Gazprom is engaged in exploration work.
is interesting that, at present, the Russian Pacific Fleet are participating in the US-led joint military exercises of the Pacific Rim, this exercise has not invited China to participate. In addition, Vietnam is rapidly expanding in recent years the procurement of weapons from Russia. Russian sale of Su-30MK2 fighters to Vietnam, and equipped with advanced “gem” anti-ship missiles, missile boats, submarines, “Cheetah” class frigates “Bastion” shore-based missile systems and other weapons. Vietnam has become the second largest purchase of Russian weapons after India. Russia to Vietnam sold for the fight against weapons from maritime aggression, including the weapons used to protect the resources of the continental shelf.
China’s domestic situation may promote a military conflict with Vietnam. To divert public attention from the country, a short-term victory is the most appropriate way. China and Vietnam in 1979 war broke out. However, if China really wanted to Vietnam in retaliation, will have to face the United States and Russia’s reaction, because the two companies engaged in exploration work in this area. ▲ (Sergei Pula Wosu Dov, Wang Zhen translated)
