China has territorial disputes with Philippines, Japan, Vietnam, India and many others and yet it continue to adopt hardline position rather than negotiate in the proper international forum. China is highly dependent with other countries for trade and it will hurt its economy if relations with its neighbors are not in order. Its leaders should realize that the use of force and intimidation has no place in the present day diplomacy.

china4sailor"You Silly Japan... Stop starting wars..."China claims most of the South China Sea, including waters close to the shores of its neighbours.In April, Chinese patrol vessels prevented the Philippine Navy from arresting a group of Chinese fishermen at the Scarborough Shoal, which is close to the main Philippine island of Luzon.Manila says China has continued to station patrol vessels in the area even after the Philippines withdrew its vessels and called for a peaceful resolution to the dispute according to international law.....why do china always say they are being aggravated when they are the one who is the aggressor?you greedy china..stop starting wars...

The focus of the latest conflict is the Scarborough Shoal, which the Philippines insists is well within its exclusive economic zone but which China claims along with most of the South China Sea....CHINA=GREEDY

repost.....Why China is so afraid of UNCLOS when it is a signatory? It is its tactic to resort to bilateral talks in which it can intimidate the weaker nation, a prey on the predators paw. It's a shame for this growing superpower to exercise its military might against the weak and lowly neighbors. It's like robbing a poor fellow with its meager food in his hand while he is enjoying a sumptous food on his table. China: let these nations live on their own. Do not grab what is not yours just because you have the means. You are bound to obey international laws

Thanks for the information. I didn't know this (but I am only slightly surprised).
