Recently, the United States of America has rejected all the Chinese claims over the South China Sea. China has continuously been trying to claim territorial regions across the South China Sea, threatening its neighboring countries to recall their applications and sit beside to avoid any conflicts between PLA and other countries’ navies.
After the rejection of claims from China took place, Beijing’s response was far from avoidable. Beijing responded the US is trying to manipulate the situation by inflaming tensions over the disputed Sea.
Mike Pompeo, Secretary of the United States, said all the claims given by the Chinese authorities have no legal basis and are merely sitting in the account of 9 dotted lines across the Sea. The US-made clear intentions that China has falsely been implicating and threatening neighboring countries over the claims of the South China Sea. China is holding such a plan to keep the claim of all the South China Sea, which is unacceptable. This type of behavior should not be taken lightly as the US wants all the South Asian alliance to carry on their friendship with the United States to reform Peace globally.
Mike Pompeo also cleared that Beijing claims are entirely unlawful, and its campaign to threaten neighboring countries will not be taken lightly. He also said that the World would not allow such irrational behavior of China claiming the South China Sea as its maritime empire.
In return, China’s response was as always dishonoring. They said that the US rejecting claims is unjustified, and the US is only trying to prove their Muscle power to provoke tensions over the conflicted Sea.
Over the past few months, the relationship between China and the United States has continuously been degrading. The president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has repeatedly called the coronavirus as the Chinese virus. Due to COVID-19, the US is the most affected country in the World and is not likely to leave China without proper retaliation.
