    China rejects Philippine's accusation on South China Sea issue

    China rejects the Philippine's accusation on the South China Sea issue, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Tuesday.

    "Chinese vessels were cruising and carrying out scientific studies in waters under China's jurisdiction, and their activities were in line with the law," Hong said.

    The Philippines' Department of Foreign Affairs said recently that the increasing activity of Chinese vessels on the South China Sea harmed the interests of Philippine fisherman, undermined the peace and stability of the region, violated maritime jurisdiction, and disobeyed the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea.

    In response to the Philippine accusation, Hong said China holds a long-term and consistent position on the South China Sea, and the position remains unchanged for centuries and is in accordance with international laws, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

    "China asks the Philippine side to stop harming China's sovereignty and maritime rights and interests, which leads to unilateral actions that expand and complicate South China Sea disputes," he said. "The Philippine side should stop publishing irresponsible statements that do not match the facts."

    Hong went on to say that China is willing to seek solutions to properly handle the dispute by directly consulting or negotiating with the Philippines. China is also willing to work with all sides involved to fully implement the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea to safeguard the stability of the sea by practical means and build it into a sea of peace, friendship and cooperation, Hong said.

    Don't forget that the Philipino govt also did arrest or shoot hundred fishmen from Vietnam in the past.

    Philippines also does regard you as the same intruders.

    BEIJING—China on Tuesday accused the Philippines of harming its maritime rights and interests in the South China Sea, in sharp retaliation to claims by Manila that Beijing is undermining regional peace.

    The Philippines said over the weekend that China dispatched vessels to intimidate rivals in disputed areas of the South China Sea, violating “maritime jurisdiction” and undermining “the peace and stability of the region.”

    But Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei hit back at the accusations Tuesday, saying the Chinese vessels were merely cruising and carrying out scientific studies in waters under Beijing’s jurisdiction.

    “China asks the Filipino side to stop harming China’s sovereignty and maritime rights and interests, which leads to unilateral actions that expand and complicate South China Sea disputes,” he said.

    He also said Manila should stop publishing “irresponsible statements that do not match the facts.”

    The Paracel archipelago and the more southerly Spratly islands in the South China Sea are both potentially resource-rich outcrops that straddle strategic shipping lanes.

    The Philippines, China, Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam claim all or part of the territories in question, and recent renewed tensions drew a warning Saturday from the United States that the disputes could lead to armed conflict.

    China and Vietnam are also locked in a dispute related to the sovereignty of the Paracel archipelago and the Spratlys. The diplomatic flare-up even triggered a protest in Hanoi – a rare occurrence in the country.

    Oh, so you want India to join the group of nations that violate others' territories, blames others on no grounds, and goes whining about nonexistent "bullying"?

    It appears that Vietnam may be pleased to see, right?

    http://ph.news.yahoo.com/philippines-arrests-122-vietnamese-fishermen-112705210.html

    Philippine police and military arrested 122 Vietnamese for illegal fishing on Monday in the biggest haul of foreign fishermen in recent memory, a police commander said.

    The Vietnamese were arrested aboard seven fishing boats off the western Philippine island of Palawan, where many foreigners have been apprehended for illegal fishing over the years, said Chief Superintendent Artemio Hicban.

    "This is the largest number of Vietnamese who have ever been caught. As far as I can remember, we have never caught these many (foreign) fishermen and fishing vessels," Hicban, the regional police commander, told AFP.

    Vietnamese embassy personnel said they had no information about the arrests and were checking on the report.

    Hicban said the fishermen would probably face charges of illegal entry and illegal fishing.

    Police at the scene have not yet said if any endangered species were found on their boats which could result in more serious accusations, he said.

    Hicban stressed that the Vietnamese were caught off the coast of Palawan and were not in disputed waters of the South China Sea that are subject to conflicting claims by the Philippines, Vietnam, China and other countries.

    "They were caught well within our territorial waters, far from the Spratlys," he said, referring to a disputed island chain in the South China Sea.

    In recent years, many Vietnamese and Chinese fishermen have been caught poaching in the waters off Palawan, in some cases with endangered species such as sea turtles.

    Earlier this month, a Vietnamese police chief reported that two Vietnamese fishermen were shot and wounded by men wearing Philippine uniforms in the Spratlys. However Philippine authorities denied any knowledge of the incident.

    Filipinos had no problem when white and black Americans were claiming Manila bay and raping their women so much there's a new race called Eurasians in Phillipines.

    Why would they have a problem now?
