It’s being reported to sources that China is building its artificial territory in South China Sea.
China claims its authority upon South China Sea. According to Reuters, China has nearly finishing its building almost two dozen structure on artificial islands in the South China Sea that appear designed to house long-range surface-to-air missiles China claims almost all the waters, which carry a third of the world’s maritime traffic. Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims. Trump’s administration has called China’s island building in the South China Sea illegal.
This new development actually turns all focus on United States that how US would react. What would be its next move? Whether it will keep continue the One China Policy. While responding to these questions a U.S. intelligence official said, “It is not like the Chinese to build anything in the South China Sea just to build it, and these structures resemble others that house SAM batteries, so the logical conclusion is that’s what they are for” Whereas a Pentagon spokesman told to media on anonymity that, ” United States remained committed to “non-militarization in the South China Sea” and urged all claimants to take actions consistent with international law.”
