Momentary coverage while flying over Paracel Islands:
Vietnam condemns China's new cruise to contested islands In a move that has faced fierce opposition from Hanoi, China opened a new route for cruise ships to sail to the Paracel Islands one week after welcoming a high-ranking member of the Vietnamese Communist Party to Beijing. “Vietnam has incontestable sovereignty over the Paracel Islands,” Le Hai Binh, the Vietnamese foreign ministry spokesman, said in a statement Thursday. The opening of the cruise route violates the resolution on China-Vietnam maritime issues signed in October 2011 and the Declaration on the Conduct of the Parties in the South China Sea (DOC) in 2002, the spokesman said in the statement. Vietnam maintains the new route will only further complicate the status quo in the East Sea – the Vietnamese term for the South China Sea – and the region. “Vietnam demands that China immediately halt such wrongful activities,” the statement read.

and brinksmanship up close in the South China Sea Vietnam Coast Guard 8003, South China Sea (CNN) -- To be at the front line of a "cold war" is, these days, a rare thing -- particularly when that front line is a remote chain of islands in the South China Sea, hundreds of kilometers from the nearest landfall. The waters around the Paracel Islands, a largely unpopulated archipelago administered by China but claimed by Vietnam, have become the "battleground" in an increasingly volatile territorial dispute between the two communist neighbors. Taking advantage of a rare opportunity to witness the spat up close, CNN traveled to the area with the Vietnamese Coast Guard. Tensions between Beijing and Hanoi ratcheted up last month, when a Chinese state-owned company deployed an oil rig in waters off the Paracels. It was set up unilaterally, without any discussion between the two sides, much to the annoyance of the Vietnamese who view it as a Chinese incursion into their sovereign waters. Since then, an increasing n ...

Vietnam Has Prepared Evidence Against China in Sea Spat By Bloomberg News May 30, 2014 10:48 AM ET Vietnam has prepared evidence for a legal suit challenging China’s claim to waters off the Vietnamese coast and is considering the best time to file it, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said today in an interview. “We are prepared and ready for legal action,” Dung said, sitting in the prime minister’s compound in Hanoi in front of a bronze bust of *** Chi Minh, the founder of communist Vietnam. “We are considering the most appropriate timing to take this measure.” Dung, 64, spoke four days after a Vietnamese fishing boat sank in a collision with a Chinese ship in an area near the disputed Paracel Islands where China has placed an oil rig. A legal filing would follow a case against China submitted by the Philippines to a United Nations’ court over contested shoals off its coast. Dung, who faces pressure from citizens calling for a strong response to China’s oil rig maneuver, risks damaging econo ...

For my Vietnamese friends and students, here is a piece for your mind! China's deployment of an oil rig off Vietnam's coast near the Paracel Islands has prompted a tense sea standoff and touched off deadly anti-China rioting. The conflict pits two neighbors with very similar governments but whose people bear ill feelings rooted in a rivalry that dates back centuries and has occasionally burst out into armed conflict. THE ANCIENT HISTORY: Vietnam was ruled off and on for more than a millennium by Chinese dynasties who regarded the southern region as a conquered province. That formally ended in 938 with the defeat of a Chinese force, although China briefly annexed Vietnam again during the Ming Dynasty in the 15th century. RECENT DECADES: Vietnam's friendship with China cooled after Hanoi drew closer to the Soviet Union, China's bitter rival for leadership of the Communist camp. Then, Vietnam invaded Cambodia in 1978 to oust the murderous Khmer Rouge regime — a close Chinese ally. Chinese forces poured acr ...
WORLD NEWS: China-Vietnam tensions: Beijing vows to continue drilling - China says its oil rig will continue drilling in contested waters in the South China Sea, despite deadly anti-Beijing riots in Vietnam. Top General Fang Fenghui said Beijing could not "afford to lose an inch" of territory, blaming Hanoi for stirring up trouble in the region. Speaking in the US, he also warned that America's efforts to increase its focus on Asia were fuelling tensions. A Chinese worker died in an attack on a steel mill in Vietnam on Wednesday. Almost 150 other people were injured as protesters targeted the Taiwanese mill in the central Ha Tinh province. On Tuesday, at least 15 foreign-owned factories were set on fire at industrial parks in Binh Duong province, and hundreds more attacked. No casualties were reported. The protests have been triggered by China's decision to move its Haiyang Shiyou 981 oil rig into waters west of the disputed Paracel Islands earlier this month. This triggered confrontations between Vietnam ...
US, China spar again on South China Seas dispute Reuters | Wed, May 14, 2014 China hit back at the United States over the disputed South China Sea on Tuesday, after US Secretary of State John Kerry said recent Chinese moves in the resource-rich waters were "provocative". Tensions rose last week after China moved a giant oil rig into an area also claimed by Vietnam. Each country accused the other of ramming its ships near the disputed Paracel Islands. China claims almost the entire South China Sea, rejecting rival claims to parts of it from Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei. "He (Kerry) said China's introduction of an oil rig and numerous government vessels in waters disputed with Vietnam was provocative," US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, referring to a telephone call between Kerry and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in which North Korea was also discussed. "He urged both sides to de-escalate tensions, ensure safe conduct by their vessels at sea, and resolve the dispute ...
China wants to occupy the Paracel Islands from Vietnam. China to lower rig right on the Paracel Islands to provoke Vietnam.

This at the same time, Viet Tan reactionary the opportunity to focus the reactionaries to undermine the country Vietnam. their collection of patriotic workers, set up demonstrations nominally patriotic people, they ask China to withdraw from the Paracels rig. they go smashing, burning and stealing plants from China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Korea. even companies in Vietnam were also smashed and burned. China is using strategy: Using the Vietnamese people beat the Vietnamese. in history, water bandits had used this strategy for my country. China making workers on my country into bloodthirsty zombies. images of Vietnamese people honest, kind, gentle, diligent getting worse in the eyes of friends around the world. the reactionary nature of protest is spreading all over my country ...
NAY PYI TAW, Myanmar – The Philippines and Vietnam criticized China’s continued aggression in the West Philippine Sea/South China Sea during the 24th Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) Summit in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar as other leaders from nation-members expressed concern but urged for peaceful resolution to the escalating tension in disputed waters. Vietnam and the Philippines are currently embroiled in territorial conflict with China in areas where the three neigboring countries have overlapping claims. Vietnam has accused China of provoking tension by parking an oil rig in the Paracel Islands, a group of islets controlled by Beijing but claimed by Hanoi. Aggressive actions from both countries have resulted to collisions of their ships, blaming each other for sparking the confrontation. The Philippines, meanwhile, has detained 11 Chinese fishermen caught by maritime authorities poaching turtles in disputed seas. Beijing has given Manila a warning to release the detained poachers or ‘furth ...

WATCH: Several hurt as China rams vessels in disputed sea MANILA, Philippines — In a video released by Vietnam's Ministry of Defense on Wednesday, Chinese ships backed by helicopters are seen ramming Vietnamese vessels trying to prevent China from putting up an oil rig in disputed waters of South China Sea near the Paracel Islands. Ngo Ngoc Thu, vice commander of the High Command of Vietnam Marine Police, said the footage was provided by Vietnamese fisheries surveillance force showing one of the two incidents this week when Chinese maritime authorities rammed, hit or used water cannons to deter several Vietnamese vessels. The video was posted on YouTube as taped from a press conference led by Thu, whose comments are subtitled on the video. "It can be clearly seen that the cannons on the Chinese ship was uncovered and ready for using at any time," Thu remarked. Windows of the Vietnamese vessels were also smashed, injuring Vietnamese crew members. Thu said that China Marine Police still hit a Vietnamese v ...

Beijing should reconsider its South China Sea claims PUBLISHED : Monday, 28 April, 2014, 4:03am UPDATED : Monday, 28 April, 2014, 4:03am Mike Rowse says Hong Kong has an interest in a resolution of the impasse. Now that the embarrassing Philippine hostage saga has finally been put to rest, perhaps we could take a look at another foreign policy issue that could affect Hong Kong. The situation with respect to the Diaoyu Islands is pretty well understood locally. In broad terms, they have been widely regarded as Chinese territory since the 14th century. They came under Japanese administration only after the first Sino-Japanese war and the subsequent Treaty of Shimonoseki in 1895. After the second world war, they were overseen by the United States and treated as part of the Ryukyu Islands. In 1972, the entire group of islands was handed back to Japan. The Chinese case for ownership of the Diaoyu Islands seems strong in moral terms given this history. Many ordinary citizens in Hong Kong have demonstrated accor ...

Who is next? Fourty years ago today was one of the most eventful day in the South China Seas (West Philippine Sea). It was the day after the famous One-day war between the Peoples Republic of China and the South Vietnam following the takeover of the Paracel Islands by the PRC.

Did it ever occur to you that China has territorial disputes with all the nations it shares a border with and eight other countries? The exception is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which it keeps on its payroll. A look into the phenomenon that is Chinese imperialism and its expansionist designs. Here is a list of the countries that have territorial and border disputes with China: Japan :: Parts of the East China Sea, particularly the Senkaku Islands. Also, on occasion, the Ryukyu Islands, on the grounds that the completely independent Kingdom of Ryukyu was once a vassal state of China. The Kingdom of Ryukyu terminated tributary relations with China in 1874.  Vietnam :: China claims large parts of Vietnam on historical precedent (Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644). Also, Macclesfield Bank, Paracel Islands, parts of the South China Sea and the Spratly Islands.  India :: China illegally occupies 38,000 sq km (Aksai Chin) of land in Jammu & Kashmir. It also holds 5,180 km of Indian territory in Pakistan occupied K ...
With new air zone, China tests U.S. dominance in East Asia China's new air defense zone, stretching far into East Asia's international skies, is an historic challenge to the United States, which has dominated the region for decades. For years, Chinese naval officers have told their U.S. counterparts they are uncomfortable with America's presence in the western Pacific - and Beijing is now confronting strategic assumptions that have governed the region since World War Two. China's recent maritime muscle-flexing in disputes over the Paracel islands and Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea and over Japanese-administered islands in the East China Sea has stirred concern and extensive backroom diplomacy in Washington. But it took the events of the last week to spark an immediate and symbolic response from the United States - the unannounced appearance in the zone of two unarmed B-52 bombers from the fortified island of Guam, the closest U.S. territory to the Chinese coast. China's unilateral creation of th ...

Geographic overview: The surface of the earth is approximately 70.9% water and 29.1% land. The former portion is divided into large water bodies termed oceans. The World Factbook recognizes and describes five oceans, which are in decreasing order of size: the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean, and Arctic Ocean. The land portion is generally divided into several, large, discrete landmasses termed continents. Depending on the convention used, the number of continents can vary from five to seven. The most common classification recognizes seven, which are (from largest to smallest): Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia. Asia and Europe are sometimes lumped together into a Eurasian continent resulting in six continents. Alternatively, North and South America are sometimes grouped as simply the Americas, resulting in a continent total of six (or five, if the Eurasia designation is used). North America is commonly understood to include the island ...

Praying for the nations: Taiwan ~ 8 Jul 2013   Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.  He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.     Background:  In 1895, military defeat forced China's Qing Dynasty to cede Taiwan to Japan. Taiwan came under Chinese Nationalist control after World War II. Following the Communist victory on the mainland in 1949, 2 million Nationalists fled to Taiwan and established a government using the 1947 constitution drawn up for all of China. Beginning in the 1950s, the ruling authorities gradually democratized and incorporated the local population within the governing structure. This process expanded rapidly in the 1980s. In 2000, Taiwan underwent its first peaceful transfer of power from the Nationalist to the Democratic Progressive Party. Throughout this period, the island prospered and became one of East Asia's economic "Tigers." The dominant political issues con ...

More background information dating back almost 4 decades to understand China's intensifying aggression today in the East and South China Seas. Recommended reading. Marwyn Samuels' View Conclusion for "Battle for the Paracels" Though the on-going feud between China and Vietnam remains the most serious source of conflict in the region, it is not the only dispute that involves the status of the islands of the South China Sea. On 16 June 1976, for example, the PRC issued a stern warning to Manila that Philippines sponsored oil exploration activity in the Reed Bank area of the Spratly Islands constituted 'an impermissible encroachment on China's territorial integrity and sovereignty'. 64 Similarly, Hanoi and Manila have also exchanged differences of opinion as to their own respective interests in the Spratly Islands. 65 Furthermore, the continued presence of a large ROC garrison force on Itu Aba Island (T'ai-p'ing tao) complicates an already muddled legal and military situation in the Spratlys.

Vietnamese Anti-China Protesters called ‘Thieves’ and ‘Beaten’ in Detention June 3, 2013 www.rfa.org Vietnamese authorities branded anti-China protesters as “thieves and prostitutes” and brutally beat them at a weekend demonstration against the recent ramming of a Vietnamese trawler by Chinese navy vessels, an activist said Monday. Some of the protesters at the rally in Hanoi Sunday were taken to a detention center in batches before they were freed, according to a blogger who was among those held. Around 150 people protested near central Hanoi’s Hoan Kien Lake before security guards hauled off “more than 20” of them onto waiting busses, blogger Nguyen Huu Vinh—also known online as JB—told RFA’s Vietnamese Service. “We patriots were categorized as prostitutes and thieves—more than 20 people were arrested,” Vinh said following his release. “They took us to Loc Ha [detention center] and separated us into different rooms. Some of us were beaten brutally.” The gathering—at w ...

Tensions rise in the South China Sea as China fires warning flares at a Vietnamese fishing boat. Both countries claim the Paracel Islands.
Se inscreva na ARF, nosso comitê em inglês! Vagas limitadas! The territorial disputes in the China Seas are probably the most concerning debate in the current international scenario, due to its many aspects, repercussions and the major powers involved. The Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands are challenged by Japan and China in the East China Sea. In the South China Sea, the Paracel Islands are disputed between China and Viet Nam; the Spratly Islands ownership is contested by Brunei Darussalam, China, Malaysia, Philippines and Viet Nam; and Scarborough Shoal – Huangyan Island for the Chinese – is contested by China and Philippines. The repercussions of the disputes involve the economic factor – the areas are major trade routes, fishing spots and wealthy in natural resources, such as oil and gas – and the political aspect, which divides interests and loyalties in the Asia Pacific area, including Western and Eastern States. They also comprise national armed forces, that patrol the islands and the sea, eventual ...
Tony Ew Atreides Well, you've failed. On the other hand China has attacked and seized Tibet, East Turkestan, Inner Mongolia and the Paracel Islands. China also attempted to seize Damansky Island and the northern part of Vietnam by force. Now the Chinese are threatening to seize lands from Vietnam, Japan and the Philippines. The real aggressor is China and its pattern of aggressive behavior seems very clear to me. Like you know history in that part of the world very well? China in fact is VERY CIVILIZE! The disputes in the S China Seas can EASILY be resolved with BILATERAL NEGOTIATIONS China had proposed from Day One. But WHY don't the other countries, especially Philippines, Vietnam agree? The Japanese goverment should release the flight pattern logs of the Japanese navy ships and the helicopter that were radar locked so we can see if there was INTENTIONAL pretext to FORCE a response from China BAITING her to fire the first shot. I have to remind people Japan master the Playbook of Deceit from observation ...
Please don't forget your responsibility and duty towards the nation in the traditional "Quý Tỵ" NEW YEAR . Đón xuân "Quý Tỵ" xin đừng quên trách nhiệm và bổn phận đối với đất nước. Dear Vietnamese, Vietnamese traditional New Year is coming soon. People in the country prepare to celebrate this festival which best can be called "Đón Xuân" or "Ăn Tết", just epitomizing our cultural identify "TẾT". You need to buy some foods, goods and products for New Year party, gifts to family or friends and so on. What should you buy these things for celebrating Tết? This is my advice for you: AVOID TO BUY MADE-IN-CHINA THINGS It never sound stupid if you say "no" to China, although their goods and products are better and cheaper than yours. There is no doubt that Vietnam has been losing its rights on the islands in disputed water. For example our fishing areas around Hoang Sa and TRUONG SA. (the Spratly Islands and the Paracel Islands) have become smaller and narrower over time. ...

Melior Merioles 17 hours ago · China’s Creeping Invasion: The Real Score At The Scarborough Shoal By ANDREW JAMES MASIGAN January 13, 2013, 11:13am Every Filipino should be aware of the real score at the Scarborough Shoal, as the situation is getting very serious. In a unilateral act of aggression, China recently announced that the Spratly Islands, Paracel Islands and Maclesfeild Bank would now be administered by its own political entity called Sansha City. The newly formed administrative body calls for the construction of Chinese military barracks in our islands, headed by no less than a Senior Colonel from the Chinese Military. They have permanently deployed military ships on the shoal and are mounting regular combat-ready patrols of its environs, indicating that they are militarizing the area. In another act of provocation, the Chinese roped off the entrance leading to the Scarborough lagoon, preventing Philippine vessels from entering. Beijing authorized its coastguards to accost foreign vessels (P ...

fm the Daily Tribune www.tribune.net.ph No retreating? Written by Ninez Cacho-Olivares Friday, 23 November 2012 00:00 Noynoy really should brush up on his Philippine History before giving out speeches claiming that Filipinos historically do not retreat from a fight with foreign aggressors, and in this case, he refers as the present day foreign aggressor, China, as he said in his speech. Noynoy said in his arrival from Cambodia statement that he has given China the very strong message that he and the Philippines will not retreat from a fight. Noynoy’s speech cited historical accounts where he said Filipinos, at no point in the past, ever took a step back against foreign aggressors. “We all are aware that in many points in our history, there were instances where foreign forces tried to annex their territories to the West Philippine Sea. We have seen it happen in 1974 and 1988 at the Paracel Islands, where foreign forces from Vietnam and China engaged in a confrontation. “We saw it recur in 1995 as t . ...

Many Countries? There are 196 countries in the world today. Unless you don't count Taiwan… Taiwan is not considered an official country by many, which would bring the count down to 195 countries. Although Taiwan operates as an independent country, many countries (including the U.S.) do not officially recognize it as one. Because the People's Republic of China considers Taiwan a breakaway province of China, countries who wish to maintain diplomatic relations with China have had to sever their formal relations with Taiwan (more than 100 countries, however, have unofficial relations with Taiwan). How many countries belong to the United Nations? 192 countries are UN members. The exceptions are Taiwan (in 1971, the UN ousted Taiwan and replaced it with the People's Republic of China) and Vatican City. Kosovo is not yet a member. The newest UN members are Switzerland (2002) and Montenegro (2006). What are the world's newest countries? The world's newest country is South Sudan, which gained independence from S ...

By Peter Symonds 7 August 2012 The Obama administration has further inflamed disputes in the South China Sea with a US State Department statement on Friday criticising China for formally establishing the city of Sansha and a garrison in the Paracel Islands. State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell maintained that the US was not taking sides in the competing territorial claims by China and several South East Asian countries. However, in noting “an uptick in confrontational rhetoric” and “disagreements over resource exploitation”, he singled out China’s upgrading of Sansha City and the stationing of troops as running “counter to collaborative diplomatic efforts to resolve differences and risk further escalating tensions in the region”. Ventrell also pointed to “coercive economic actions, and the incidents around the Scarborough Reef, including the use of barriers to deny access”—an oblique criticism of China’s actions in the ongoing dispute with the Philippines, a US ally, over the ...

Beguiled by undersea oil and gas deposits and the weakness of fellow claimants to the Paracel Islands, China launched a naval offensive to seize the disputed archipelago.
