South China Sea: America calls China a ‘bully’ and its Claims ‘Illegal’

South China Sea Claims of China rejected by America: The United States has rejected brazen claims by China in the South China Sea. Just like its border dispute with India, China has been very assertive against its neighbours in the South China Sea. Today US Secretary of State Pompeo released a detailed statement, the summary is as follows

Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them. Beijing uses intimidation to undermine the sovereign rights of Southeast Asian coastal states in the South China Sea, bully them out of offshore resources, assert unilateral dominion, and replace international law with “might makes right.” Beijing’s approach has been clear for years. In 2010, then-PRC Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi told his ASEAN counterparts that “China is a big country and other countries are small countries and that is just a fact.” The PRC’s predatory world view has no place in the 21st century.
