China claims most of the sea as its territory, but the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan say parts of the sea belong to them. Tensions have risen over the years and resulted in several confrontations as well as US involvement. The South China Morning Post looks at the origins of the dispute, what these countries are fighting over and what they’re doing to assert their territorial claims.

Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma raised serious apprehension about Chinese activities in the South China Sea during a Senate hearing. Inhofe said, “It’s like you’re preparing for World War III. You’re talking to our allies over there and you wonder whose side they’re going to be on.” He stated that he was "concerned" that the message was not coming across, after China used a media blitz to present a host of illegal, artificial islands as "search and rescue centers". It is to be noted that last year Chinese state media circulated images of 2.8 km square island fortress for the first time after its completion. On 29th Jan this year, Beijing’s state run media mouthpiece Xinhua says China’s Ministry of Transport has officially opened a ‘maritime rescue center’ on Fiery Cross Reef. Xinhua quotes the ministry as saying. “The center will offer better support to maritime rescue operations in the southern part of the South China Sea,” As per the latest estimates, the Fiery Cross Reef is third largest of China’s artificial island fortresses having more than 100 building. The news article provided no explanation why gun and missile and hardened aircraft hangars were needed on an island meant for maritime rescue. As per Inhofe, the US sat back and watched as China staked its claim on the contested reefs. He emphasized that because the U.S did nothing, the islands are now equipped with weapons and fortifications.

China has established numerous military installations in the South China Sea, primarily in the Spratly and Paracel Islands. In the Spratlys, China has built airfields at Subi, Mischief and Fiery Cross, along with potential missile, radar and helicopter infrastructure at several smaller formations. In the Paracels, China has established a significant military installation at Woody Island, as well as radar and helicopter facilities in several other areas. China continues construction across the region, meaning that it may expand its military presence in the future. The larger bases — Subi, Mischief, Fiery Cross and Woody Island — have infrastructure necessary for the management of military aircraft, including fighters and large patrol craft. The installations have been objected by it neighbors such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Vietnam. Though the US takes no position on the territorial dispute in the South China Sea, its warships have conducted routine “freedom of navigation” operations near the reclaimed islands.

The guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell carried out a “freedom of navigation” operation to challenge China’s “excessive maritime claims” in the area. China says it sent ships and aircraft to identify and warn off the US ship. The two-day trade meetings in Beijing are being held during a 90-day truce in the ongoing US-China trade war.

Pentagon officials said two guided-missiIe destroyers had travelled within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the fiercely disputed Spratly Islands. The deployment is seen as the latest attempt by Washington to stand up to what it believes are attempts by Beijing to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese and other Southeast Asian navies operate. China claims almost all of the South China Sea and frequently criticises the US and its allies over naval operations near Chinese-occupied islands. Britain today announced it was sending its new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth to the volatile region on its first operational mission. Beijing and Washington remain at loggerheads over US allegations for China’s militarization of the South China Sea by building military installations on artificial islands and reefs.

An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

Beijing Sent a Hundred Fleets of Ships to The Disputed South China Sea Island China has been accused of sending a fleet of almost 100 ships to hamper Philippine construction work on a disputed island in the South China Sea. Beijing started sending vessels to Thitu, part of the Spratly chain, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) run by the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies. The fleet of ships, dispatched from the nearby Subi Reef, includes vessels from the navy and coastguard along with dozens of fishing boats. The report said their presence was part of an effort to coerce the Philippines into stopping the work on the island, which China also claims as its own. Satellite images showed that a Chinese navy Jianghu V-class frigate and Zhaoduan-class coastguard cutter were off Thitu on December 20, when the number of Chinese vessels had peaked at 95. The report said the Chinese warship was just over seven nautical miles away from the Philippine navy’s frigate, the BRP Ramon Alcaraz, at the time. The Philippine government announced in April 2017 that it would start building a beaching ramp on Thitu, which is known as Pagasa in the Philippines and Zhongye island in Chinese. Once completed, the beaching ramp will allow Philippine ships to bring construction materials to repair and lengthen the runway on the island to accommodate larger aircraft. The work should have been finished by the end of last year, but Philippine officials said it had been delayed by inclement weather and rough seas. But the AMTI suggested that China’s activities had also contributed to the delay. The Philippine Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana told the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Monday that the ramp was now expected to be finished by the first quarter of this year. “The problem with Pagasa is that you have to bring in everything you need for its repair – steel bars, sand, gravel, heavy equipment,” Lorenzana said. “You need a beaching ramp to bring these in … So I believe it should be finished by the first quarter of this year, this beaching ramp.” Lorenzana also said his country should protest against Beijing’s decision to build a rescue centre on Fiery Cross Reef, a Chinese-occupied outpost in the Spratly chain that is also claimed by the Philippines and Vietnam. Citing satellite images, the AMTI said the number of Chinese ships in the area had risen to at least 24 on December 3, before the latest construction work began, and had risen to 95 on December 25. The number had dropped to 42 by January 26. Lorenzana said in November that China’s ambassador to the Philippines had previously urged him to cancel the planned work. But the drop in the number of Chinese vessels suggests “Chinese forces have settled into a pattern of monitoring and intimidation after their initial large deployment failed to convince Manila to halt construction”, the AMTI said. “But those plans continue to face delays and their scope is much more modest than those undertaken by China or even Vietnam,” the report said. Once completed, the Philippines will have reclaimed eight acres of land in the Spratlys in recent years, compared with about 120 acres by Vietnam and 3,200 by China, it added.

China Navy Shocked: US Destroyers Sail in The Disputed South China Sea as Trade Tensions Simmer The U.S. sent two warships close by islands claimed by Beijing in the disputed South China Sea on Monday, the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet said, as American negotiators arrived in the Chinese capital for talks aimed at resolving a trade spat between the two powers. A spokesman for the 7th Fleet told The Japan Times that the guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble had “conducted freedom of navigation operations (FONOPS) in the South China Sea,” with the two vessels sailing “within 12 nautical miles” (22 km) of the Spratly Islands. The mission was conducted “in order to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” 7th Fleet spokesperson Lt. Joe Keiley said. While the 7th Fleet was not specific about what features the two destroyers had sailed near, Reuters, quoting an unidentified U.S. official, reported that they had passed by Mischief Reef, which is occupied by China but also claimed by Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines. Mischief Reef has undergone a massive land reclamation project and is home to a military-grade airfield. Recent reports have also said the islet has emplacements for mis-siles, extensive storage facilities and a range of installations that can track satellites, foreign military activity and communications. Beijing has constructed a series of military outposts throughout the waterway, which includes vital sea lanes through which about $3 trillion in global trade passes each year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei have overlapping claims in the waters, where the U.S., Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies also routinely operate. China says its facilities are for defensive purposes, but some experts say this is part of a concerted bid to cement de facto control of the waters. China’s Foreign Ministry reacted angrily to the latest FONOP, blasting the U.S. ships for entering what it called its “territorial seas … without permission.” Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that the Chinese had side immediately identified the U.S. ships and warned them to leave, adding that China would continue to take necessary measures to safeguard itself. Meanwhile, the U.S. and China remain locked in a trade war, with the two sides attempting to reach a deal ahead of a March 1 deadline, when U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports are scheduled to increase to 25 percent from 10 percent. Preliminary discussions by lower-level U.S. negotiators were to be held in Beijing on Monday, before U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin step in for the main event on Thursday and Friday. Some observers say the ramped-up pace of U.S. FONOPs could be intended to heap pressure on Beijing amid the ongoing trade talks. The U.S. has denied this is the case. “We conduct routine and regular freedom of navigation operations, as we have done in the past and will continue to in the future,” the 7th Fleet’s Keiley said. “FONOPs are not about any one country, nor are they about making political statements.” He noted that U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region “on a daily basis,” including in the South China Sea, and that the United States “will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe.” In mid-January, U.S. and British warships conducted military exercises in the South China Sea for the first time since China fortified its islands there. The U.S. has also ramped up its solo FONOPs, including an operation early last month that saw one of its destroyers pass near the Paracel Island chain, north of the Spratlys, in the South China Sea. Just a day after that operation, Chinese state-run media announced that Beijing’s so-called carrier killer anti-ship mis-sile had been deployed to the country’s northwest — a move that it appeared to link to missions in the South China Sea. The missile, known as the DF-26, reportedly has a range of 3,000-4,000 km, and the report alluded to the U.S. operations, quoting an unidentified expert as noting that it served as “a good reminder that China is capable of safeguarding its territory.” “Even when launched from deeper inland areas of China, the DF-26 has a range far-reaching enough to cover the South China Sea,” the expert said.

U.S. Destroyer Ship Sails 12 Miles Near Paracel Islands Disputed South China Sea Islands in Challenge to Beijing - A U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell patrolled near the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea on Monday, challenging Beijing’s maritime claims there, U.S. military officials said. The USS McCampbell conducted what the military calls a freedom of navigation operation in the Paracel Islands chain, sailing within 12 nautical miles of three islands: Tree, Lincoln and Woody, according to a Navy official. The ship patrol was meant to challenge excessive maritime claims by Beijing and to “preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” according to a statement from Lt. j.g. Rachel McMarr, a spokeswoman for U.S. Pacific Fleet. China sent a vessel to warn off the American ship and has lodged a complaint with the U.S., Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Monday at a regular press briefing in Beijing. Mr. Lu urged the U.S. to stop taking provocative action in the region and avoid disrupting trade talks under way in Beijing. “It is imperative for the two sides and I believe we have a responsibility to create an enabling atmosphere for these talks at this time,” he said. The Paracels are claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan but have been controlled by China since it seized them from Vietnamese forces in 1974. The U.S. Navy has conducted such patrols in the South China Sea for years but tensions with Beijing over the operations have escalated in recent years as China has sought to assert its extensive maritime claims in one of the world’s busiest waterways. The U.S. and its Asian allies and partners have been alarmed in particular by China’s construction of seven fortified artificial islands—including three with large airstrips—in the Spratly Islands chain. China’s claims in the Spratlys overlap with those of Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines—a U.S. treaty ally. Beijing has also upgraded several military outposts in the Paracels and deployed jet fighters to at least one, according to satellite images and U.S. officials. The U.S. has responded by stepping up its patrols in the area—often sailing close to China’s new artificial islands—and encouraging allies to exercise their right to freedom of navigation in the area. China’s reclamation activities in the Paracels are less extensive than in the Spratlys and are considered by the U.S. and others as less threatening to the status quo in the region, but Beijing typically takes a dim view of Washington’s patrols through the area. China says it has “indisputable” sovereignty over all South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters, and has often accused the U.S. of destabilizing the region with its naval patrols. The USS Decatur conducted a patrol in the Spratlys in September, sailing past Gaven and Johnson reefs over the course of a 10-hour patrol and sailing within 12 nautical miles of both features. The two outposts have been fortified militarily and have reinforced fears among the U.S., Asian nations and others that China could use such islands to base ships, planes, weaponry and other material to enforce its claims across the South China Sea. “U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region on a daily basis, including in the South China Sea,” according to a statement from the U.S. Pacific Fleet. “All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe.” Last month, the McCampbell conducted a freedom of navigation operation against Russia in Peter the Great Bay in the Sea of Japan.

U.S. Warships Again Challenge Beijing's Claims in South China Sea The United States sailed two warships close to disputed islands in the South China Sea on Monday (Sunday night, ET), a move that is bound to draw the ire of Beijing. The guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands as part of what the US Navy calls a "freedom of navigation operation." The operation was carried out "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law," Cmdr. Clay Doss, a spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, told US Military News. "All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows," Doss said, adding "that is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe." Monday's operation was the second in the South China Sea reported by the US Navy this year. In January, the destroyer USS McCampbell sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands. Shortly after that operation, China accused the US of trespassing in its territorial waters -- and said it had deployed missiles "capable of targeting medium and large ships." "The US action violated the Chinese laws and international laws, infringed China's sovereignty, damaged regional peace, security, and order," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at the time. "China will take necessary actions to protect state sovereignty." In late September, the USS Decatur also sailed within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson reefs in the Spratly Islands as part of a similar freedom of navigation operation. During that operation, a Chinese destroyer came within 45 yards of the US warship, forcing it to maneuver to avoid a collision. The US labeled the Chinese warship's actions unsafe and unprofessional, while Beijing said the US was threatening the safety and sovereignty of China. The US has accused Beijing of installing missiles and other military hardware on the disputed islands. "There's been sort of a steady increase," Adm. John Richardson, the US Chief of Naval Operations, told reporters earlier this month when asked about China's militarization of the area. "The weapons systems have been getting increasingly sophisticated so it's something we're watching very closely," he added.

Reef Madness: The insignificant island chain pushing the south china sea to the brink of war Subscribe to Journeyman: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=JourneymanPictures For more on this escalating situation visit: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlGSlkijht5gc6AwNdNCKra10gSLaxae6 For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/?lid=67224 The Spratly Islands are an unremarkable scattering of reefs and sandbars in the South China Sea. But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict? "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

China has refused to recognise the decision of the UN backed court. Beijing says nearly 90 percent of the South China Sea belongs to it. In recent years, it’s bolstered its claims through various means, from building artificial islands to running tourist cruises in disputed waters.

Tension: Chinese Warship Almost Sink USS Decatur and USS Vessel In South China Sea China accused the United States of flouting its sovereignty Tuesday after an American warship sailed near islands claimed by Beijing in the disputed South China Sea, further rattling relations between the countries after weeks of escalating military tension. A Chinese destroyer came within yards of the U.S. Navy ship Sunday, compelling it to switch direction in what American officials called an “unsafe and unprofessional” clash. China’s Defense Ministry countered that the USS Decatur should never have traveled through those waters in its “freedom of navigation” mission, provoking Beijing to order a Luyang-class warship to force it away from the Spratly Islands. “The Chinese vessel took quick action and made checks against the U.S. vessel in accordance with the law, and warned it to leave the waters,” spokesman Wu Qian said in a statement. The presence of American ships near the Chinese-claimed archipelago off the coast of the Philippines, Malaysia and southern Vietnam is “seriously threatening China’s sovereignty and security” and “seriously undermining the relations between the two countries and the two militaries,” Wu added.

Two US warships sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea on Monday, a move likely to anger Beijing at a time of tense relations between the countries with the world’s two biggest economies. A US official said two guided-missile destroyers travelled within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands. The operation was the latest attempt to counter what Washington claims is Beijing’s efforts to limit freedom of navigation in waters where Chinese, Japanese and some southeast Asian navies operate. It was the second such mission by the US this year. In early January, the destroyer USS McCampbell sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Island chain.

WEST PHILIPPINE SEA — China has landed a bomber on its man-made islands in the heavily disputed territory of the South China Sea for the first time. According to Chinese state media, a long-range H-6K bomber was used in landing and take off drills. Beijing's defense ministry did not say where the bomber landed, but added the drills included simulated strikes against sea targets. According to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, using Chinese social media posts, identified the location as Woody Island. The H-6K has a combat radius of almost 1,900 nautical miles (3,520 km), meaning all of Southeast Asia would be in range from Woody Island, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative. The South China Sea is a vital global trade route subject to overlapping claims by six countries. Analysts say China will soon land bombers even farther south in the Spratly Islands, where runways and hangars have also been built on reefs.

The South China Sea plays an outsized role in international commerce and politics. A litany of regional and global powers crave its natural resources as well as the benefits that come with controlling on of the world's most important shipping lanes. China has aggressively pursued control over the Spratley Islands — an archipelago of rocks, reefs and cays that sit in the middle of the sea. Malaysia, Brunei, The Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan have staked their own claims to the area, but it's really the United States Navy that stands in the way of China. The Seventh Fleet, however, cannot keep China from reclaiming land on the islands it controls. Professor Dave Denoon, director of the NYU Center on US-China Relations explains how the situation arose and how it will likely play out in upcoming years. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

China’s military announced on Sunday that it had dispatched warships to challenge two United States Navy vessels that sailed through waters in the South China Sea that China claims as its own. The Chinese confronted the American ships and warned them to leave, the Ministry of National Defense said in a statement posted on its website, but other details of the encounter were not immediately clear. The American vessels — the Higgins, a destroyer, and the Antietam, a cruiser — passed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands, an archipelago in the northern part of the disputed waters of South China Sea off the coast of Vietnam. The chief spokesman for China’s Ministry of National Defense, Senior Col. Wu Qian, said that the United States “gravely violated Chinese sovereignty.” Read More: http://bit.ly/warships-in-south-china-sea

US angers China after sailing two warships close to disputed South China Sea islands China's foreign ministry expressed anger on Monday after two US warships sailed near islands claimed by China in the disputed South China Sea. The ships entered the waters without China's permission, ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing. Beijing and Washington are locked in a trade war and the two sides are trying to hammer out a deal ahead of a March 1 deadline when US tariffs on $200 billion (£155 billion) worth of Chinese imports are scheduled to increase to 25 per cent from 10 per cent. Escalating tensions between the US and China have cost both countries billions of dollars and roiled global financial markets. A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the two guided-missile destroyers traveled within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the disputed Spratly Islands. The operation was the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing's efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies operate.

LADD REEF, SOUTH CHINA SEA — Satellite images taken by a U.S. based firm revealed suspected dredging work on Ladd Reef, a coral reef controlled by Vietnam in the South China Sea. Ladd Reef is about 450 km from Vietnam’s southeastern coast and is completely submerged at high tide. It has a 42-meter-tall lighthouse, which is operated by a small number of Vietnam soldiers and worker. Analysts told Reuters that such dredging work could be the precursor to more extensive construction on other reefs, and Ladd Reef might be used to boost access for supply ships and fishing boats. It could also help defend the nearby Spratly Islands, where Vietnam has expanded its airstrip. Vietnam is one of the many nations that claims the South China Sea as part of its territory. China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have also made claims in the region. Vietnam has become China’s main rival in the disputed South China Sea. According to Reuters, the mobile rocket launchers installed on several islands controlled by Vietnam are capable of striking China’s runway and military installations. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

WOODY ISLAND, SOUTH CHINA SEA — Chinese oil company Sinopec is building a service station in the disputed Paracels Islands in the South China Sea, Reuters reported. The station, along with a storage tank, is being built on Woody Island and will be completed in one year. The facilities will provide fuel to all Chinese-controlled islands and reefs in the South China Sea over the next few years, Sinopec said in a post on its microblog. Woody island has a population of about 1,000 people. China has also been expanding infrastructure on it by building a new airport facility and extending the runway. China claims nearly all of the South China Sea, through which more than $5 trillion worth of maritime trade passes every year. That claim is not recognized by the United States and its allies, which conduct freedom of navigation exercises in waters claimed by China. Other countries have claims in the South China Sea such as Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Taiwan. On November 25, the BBC recorded a Royal Australian Air Force P-3 Orion surveillance plane conducting one such patrol. The plane tried to inform the Chinese navy, which did not respond. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, by stepping up military surveillance flights over the region, Australia is showing China it does not intend to stop operations in the disputed areas. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

F-35 fighter jets are deployment to South China Sea - American Lockheed Martin F-35s will embed on the maiden mission of the U.K.'s HMS Queen Elizabeth to disputed waters in the South China Sea. At London's Royal United Services Institute think tank Monday, Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson announced the U.K.'s new carrier will be sent to the Mediterranean, Middle East and Pacific for its first operational mission after extensive tests with F-35s in the U.S. late last year. Williamson didn't give a time frame for the deployment, but the HMS Queen Elizabeth is expected to enter service by 2020. The so-called Big Lizzy's voyage will officially be a mixed U.K.-U.S. deployment. "Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier's air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces and reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners," Williamson said. Durning his speech, Williamson also highlighted the U.K.'s purchase of nine Boeing Poseidon P-8 Maritime Patrol Aircraft that will allow the U.K. to "patrol thousands of miles of ocean and greatly enhancing our anti-submarine and maritime capability." South China Sea A Big Stage For F-35s. The deployment of F-35s to the South China Sea comes as regional tensions have boosted demand for the stealth fighter. Japan recently added 100 jets to an earlier order for 42 F-35s, making the U.S. ally the biggest overseas buyer of the F-35 after the U.K. The inclusion of F-35B short-take off and vertical landing variants in the latest order plus Japan's decision to build a ship capable of launching them mean the country will be able to use the F-35Bs to project power beyond Japan's territorial waters. China and Japan are engaged in a separate dispute outside the South China Sea Meanwhile, South Korea is also buying F-35s amid growing concern over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs. South Korea also hosted a deployment of U.S. Marine Corps F-35s in 2017 for training exercises. The South China Sea deployment will be another high-profile opportunity to showcase the F-35's capabilities to U.S. allies and adversaries. Chinese Aggression In South China Sea. Beijing has been building artificial islands in the South China Sea and deploying weapons on them in recent years as part of its effort to claims the adjacent water, waters which contain key shipping routes and oil deposits. The U.S. and its allies have conducted so-called freedom of navigation patrols through the South China Sea despite Chinese warnings that they must first get permission from Beijing. Late Sunday night, the U.S. destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed by the disputed Spratly Islands, according to CNN.
