How Hague Verdict on S China Sea Failed to See ‘Western Hypocrisy’

© AFP 2016/ STR

21:10 17.07.2016

The Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled that China has no legal basis to claim historic rights to resources in the South China Sea. China called this decision 'invalid'.

Despite China’s rejection of the decision, several countries including the US have been pressuring China to accept the void verdict under the banner of “respect for law”.


Ever since the Philippines filed the South China Sea arbitration, the US, Australia, Japan and some other countries accused China of violating international law.

According to China's People's Daily newspaper, “This tough talk only exposed their dirty strategic motives. Such tricks are not able to cover the legitimacy of China’s stances, nor alter the strong support to China from those international forces standing for justice.”

The publication further mentioned that the above countries adopted a completely different attitude when they were involved in issues related with the international rule of law. Hence, such sharp contrast speaks for their hypocrisy and unpredictability.

“They supported international judicial rules that they can benefit from, but trampled on that not in favor of them ,” the newspaper wrote.

The publication mentioned that the US has never been accused under UNCLOS because Washington never approved the law, an article on Foreign Affairs wrote in an ironic tone.

“Back in the 1980s, Nicaragua charged the US with taking military and paramilitary actions in and against Nicaragua and violating the sovereignty of Nicaragua in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).”

The ICJ ruled in favor of Nicaragua and gave reparations to Nicaragua. But the US, with a tough attitude, declined participation in the events and overruled the verdict delivered by the ICJ.

The US later obstructed enforcement of the judgment by the UN Security Council and banned Nicaragua from obtaining any definite compensation.

“The same goes for Australia, which always wants to follow the ‘international police’ posture. When concluding maritime rights treaties with Timor-Leste, the Australian government unilaterally rejected such articles concerning maritime delimitation and third-party dispute settlement procedure. Without any other options, Timor-Leste had to file for arbitration to overrule the validity of the treaty,” People’s Daily reported.


In order to stop Timor-Leste from initiating the arbitration, the Australian intelligence agency went as far as searching the legal representative office of Timor-Leste in Australia, delaying documents and stopping witnesses from appearing before the tribunal.


Another country which is no stranger to violating international law is Japan. Its whale-hunt in Antarctica was ruled as breaching the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling by the ICJ, which ordered Japan to stop distributing whaling permits in the South Pole.

“Though talking a good talk about respecting the verdict, the Japanese government did not match its actions with words. No effective measures were taken to curb domestic whaling.”

Contrary to, Western countries, China has always resolutely maintained the authority of international law.

At the commemoration marking the 60th anniversary of the "Five Principles of Peaceful Co-existence," Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out that all countries should advance the rule of law in international relations together.

“We should urge all parties to abide by international law and well-recognized basic principles governing international relations and use widely applicable rules to tell right from wrong and pursue peace and development,” People’s Daily reported Xi Jinping as saying.

According to the publication, unlike Western countries who selectively apply international law, China always applies “the spirit of the international rule of law in its diplomatic practice.” So far, China has established over 23,000 bilateral agreements and joined more than 400 multilateral treaties.

In January 2013, the Philippines filed a suit against China, claiming that Beijing had violated the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea by its actions in the South China Sea. China refused to participate in the case.

Last week, the Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled that China has no legal basis to claim historic rights to South China Sea resources and violated the sovereign rights of the Philippines in the country’s exclusive economic zone.

Russia And China Discuss Joint Outer-Space Exploration, Moon And Even Mars



Originally appeared at Forbes

China and Russia are discussing joint cooperation in outer-space exploration, including missions to the Moon and even Mars , according to a statement by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on Wednesday.

“Yesterday, we (Rogozin and Vice-Premier of China’s State Council Wang Yang) worked for three and a half hours, discussing cooperation in the nuclear sphere and cooperation in the issues of interaction between our space agencies where there are such large projects as the deliveries of rocket engines, and cooperation in navigation systems,” the Russian vice-premier said.

He made his remarks during a talk with the heads of Russian regions and Chinese provinces and the managers of companies from both countries. The expo is an annual industrial exhibition held since 2014 within the framework of the Harbin Trade Fair.

“We’re developing an understanding for the rocket and space industry for possible interaction in such profound and technologically complex projects as the future exploration of the Moon, Mars and piloted cosmonautics,” he said.

Rogozin added that both countries have the potential to implement such impressive projects as trust exists both at the political level and at the level of specialists solving these issues.

Rogozin’s statement’s come less than a month after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Beijing. During that meeting the two sides inked a pact setting out the legal framework for protecting their rights to sensitive space technologies in joint projects like launch vehicles and rocket engines.

China’s lunar program needs Russia

Rogozin said on July 6 that China might buy rocket engines for its space program from Russia, adding that China was interested “in a number of services and products, which will be very important for the development of the Chinese space program, in particular, for its lunar program.” He said that China’s lunar program is practically impossible without “certain supplies of equipment from Russia.”

Russia’s Ambassador to China, Andrey Denisov, said the two sides have been discussing the prospects of cooperation with space stations and making long-distance space flights. He added that “this cooperation is of purely peaceful, civilian nature and will finally benefit the entire humankind rather than only the participating states.”

China, for its part, has already ramped-up its pace program, conducting 19 successful space flights last year, with 20 planned for 2016. It also plans to launch to launch its Tiangong 2 space laboratory and a manned spacecraft Shenzhou 11, among other military and commercial orbital missions.

Earlier this month, according to state-run Xinhua news agency, China shipped the Tiangong 2 to the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi desert, where it will be launched into space in mid-September. The module was transported by rail from Beijing.

The Tiangong 1 was launched in 2011 and hosted two crews of taikonauts (Chinese astronauts) in 2012 and 2013. China releases less information about its space activities than other nations, while plans for Tiangong 1 remain unclear.

Personally, I would rather see China doing it alone. After all China has the capacity and skilled workforce.
But if it serves the Chinese strategic needs then why not.

Any progess in space is good for mankind.

The Chinese People’s Republic Army Air Force (PLAAF) is believed to have received four low production rate J-20 jets, which have been tested and completed acceptance tests recently. The first front-line regiment is supposed to activate and receive aircraft by June 2017 and is expected to be combat ready by 2019. That milestone could be pushed forward, given the budget priority. The final requirement could be between 500 to 700.

Chengdu’s No.611 Institute developed the plane. This large interceptor made its first flight in 2011. Two Russian-made Saturn AL-31F power the prototypes and first production aircraft accelerating it to a maximum speed of Mach 1.7.

Two lateral bays accommodate highly maneuverable PL-9/PL-10 IR missile. The main weapon bay can carry longer weapons can accommodate four PL-15 medium-range AAMs or the new PL-21 ramjet powered, long Range Air/Air Missiles, similar to the MBDA Meteor. Additionally, large air/ground weapons can be carried in this bay.





In 2015, Russia slowed PAK FA (T-50) production and reduce its initial order to 12 jets due to the nation's deteriorating economy, along with the manufacturer's ability to produce the more complex aircraft.

Russian Air Force Commander-in-Chief Viktor Bondarev, stated that the PAK FA is to enter serial production in 2017, after all trials are complete. Due to the aircraft's complexity and rising costs, the Russian Air Force will retain large fleets of fourth-generation Sukhoi Su-27 and Su-35S fighters.

The United States could build over 2000 F-35 stealth fighters and has built 187 F-22 stealth fighters.

The U.S. and eight partner nations + Israel, Japan, and South Korea have planned to acquire a total of 3,170 F-35s.

The US should build 873 F-35s by 2022.

Never mind Russia, China is competing hard with USA, to produce large volumes of 5th gen fighters. It's not really hard to figure out why China is making such fast progress. You need ample funding, advanced research and manufacturing capacity, political will from their leadership, and good reason (SCS disputes) to build these expensive and sophisticated weapons. All of these things China has plenty of.

China’s Newest 1,305MPH Next-Gen Stealth J-20 Fighter Jet Soars the Skies

22:01 23.07.2016

The advance of the J-20 fighter program is cause for concern for Japan which faces a several year capability gap until the F-35 Lightning II becomes combat ready – if it ever does.

China’s Chengdu Aircraft Company (CAC) has built a new Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) J-20 stealth fighter jets with video footage on Chinese websites showing the latest rendition in full fury this week. This is the second known J-20 LRIP fighter jet after the first with the serial number 2101 displayed in late December 2015. There are believed to be a total of four such next generation jets in the possession of the Chinese Air Force.

The fighter jet is painted in shades of gray along with a toned down national insignia, but unlike previous J-20s, it has no identifiable serial numbers. China’s official Xinhua and CCTV news outlets have yet to confirm the existence of the new J-20 despite video evidence to confirm its existence.

Security analysts believe that the appearance of the LRIP fighter jet suggests that it is nearing introduction into service with the People’s Liberation Army Air Force well ahead of official US Department of Defense projections that the J-20 would become operational in 2018.

The J-20 soars at a top speed of 1,305MPH (2,100kmh) and features a stealth design comparable to Lockheed-Martin’s F-35 Lightning II although with far fewer reported technical setbacks and safety concerns. The J-20’s weapons are carried internally, with a central bay believed to contain four beyond visual range air-to-air missiles (BVRAAMs) as well as two short-range air-to-air missiles (AAMs).


Only one challenge remains before the J-20 is inducted into the Chinese Air Force – what power source will be used for mass production of the fighter jet? Currently, the J-20 is powered by two Russian Saturn AL-31 engines, but Beijing hopes to eventually install 180-kN (40,000-pound-trhust) rated WS-15 turbofans, but the indigenous jet engine development program has run into a series of manufacturing problems that has delayed their full scale production.


The emergence of the J-20 over the skies of the South and East China Seas would provide Beijing with unparalleled regional air superiority as they continue to battle over the contested Paracel and Spratly Islands amidst US intervention and for the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands against Japan.

The advance of the J-20 fighter jet comes at a worrying time for Tokyo which faces a several year capability gap as they wait to see whether a functional F-35 fighter jet will ever fully materialize after the US prohibited their ally from acquiring the ultra-elite F-22 Raptor.

Will Russia and China Build an SCO-Based Joint Missile Defense System?

21:57 20.07.2016(updated 22:26 20.07.2016)

Russia and China may create a unified missile defense system for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. That's the conclusion of experts speaking at a forum dedicated to the US deployment of the THAAD anti-ballistic missile system in South Korea. What would the Russian-Chinese system look like? Sputnik investigates.

On Monday, experts in Moscow and Beijing spoke via video conference on the implications for regional security of the US deployment of missile defense systems in South Korea. And while the forum focused mostly on political and military implications of the THAAD deployment, experts also intrigued observers by indicating that it was possible for Russia and China to join together to create a single missile defense shield over the entirety of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the political, economic and military organization involving much of eastern Eurasia.

Russia, China Could be 'Driving Force' in Creation of SCO Joint Missile Shield

Regarding the THAAD deployment, Moscow has repeatedly indicated that it was categorically opposed to the move. THAAD, capable of monitoring ballistic and aerial targets at distances of up to 1,500 km, is expected to give the US military the capability to 'see' into the territory of the Russian Federation, and even further into that of China.


Speaking at the video conference on Monday, Vladimir Petrovsky, a senior researcher at the Moscow-based Center for the Studies and Forecasting of Russia-China Relations at the Institute for Far Eastern Studies, explained that the potential for a joint missile defense shield exists. Moreover, such a shield would be entirely appropriate given recent US moves, from its deployment of missile shield components in Eastern Europe to the deployment of THAAD in South Korea.

"Russia and China could become the driving force in the area of missile defense. Special attention should be paid to the land-based interception systems which we have at our disposal," the analyst said.

THAAD Dilemma: Seoul's Safety Assurances 'Nothing But Enforcement'

Recently, the analyst recalled, Japan, South Korea and the United States conducted drills practicing the interception of ballistic missiles using the maritime-based US Aegis system. The appropriate response from Moscow and Beijing, according to Petrovsky, would be for the two countries' air defense forces to conduct similar joint exercises at the Ashuluk range in Russia's Astrakhan region.

Asked to comment on Petrovsky's words, experts speaking to the independent online news and analysis hub Svobodnaya Pressa indicated that a joint missile defense system was entirely within the realm of possibility.

Vladimir Evseev, the deputy director at the CIS Institute, indicated that he believes the creation of a united anti-missile defense system is definitely possible.

"Just to specify, we are talking about an anti-missile defense system, not air defense in general. In May, Russia and China staged their first joint missile defense exercises using computer simulations in Moscow. This was the first step in a plan to create a joint missile defense system. The next could be to gather real-world experience on the interception of ballistic targets, for example, at the Ashuluk range."

The expert noted that at present, China has two battalions of S-300PMU surface-to-air missile systems, two regiments of S-300PMU-1s and four regiments of S-300PMU-2s. Moreover, they have their own domestically developed SAM system – the HQ-9, created on the basis of its Russian analogues. This includes a maritime variant of the complex – the HHQ-9. "In addition, China has an analogue to the American Aegis system – built on the basis of France's Thomson-CSF TAVITA."

These systems are capable of intercepting ballistic targets at altitudes of up to 30 km and speeds of 1.5-2 km per second. Russia soon plans to supply Beijing with the S-400 Triumf; that system's basic missiles are also capable of intercepting targets at altitudes of about 30 km, but at higher precision.


Russian defense systems, in addition to the S-300 and S-400, also include the Moscow Air Defense System's A-135 missile, capable of intercepting enemy missiles at altitudes of up to 60 km.

"With regard to missile attack early warning systems (EWS), that of Russia is of course more advanced, and includes ground-based early warning radar (including the Daryal, Volga, Don-2N and Voronezh radar systems), plus the group of satellites in high elliptical and geostationary orbit."

A Voronezh-series radar system in the Kaliningrad region. The Voronezh-series radar station features a high level of standardization and prefabrication, allowing for it to be deployed more cheaply and quickly than its predecessors.
Effectively, Evseev noted that "based on available funds, we could carry out exercises and make an attempt to intercept a ballistic target over Russian territory using joint calculations and, later on, eventually strive for the creation of collective missile defense."

"Such a move would serve as an effective response to US plans to deploy elements of missile defense in space. It is space-based ABM specifically which threatens to provide guaranteed interception – during the active phase of the missile's flight. And at this stage it is not necessary to make choices about the real targets within a cloud of decoys, as is the case when interception is carried out during the passive phase," nearer to the ground.

Ultimately, the analyst warned, if the US continues to develop its space-based missile defense components, "the only effective means against such a system would be the use of anti-satellite weapons. We know that China has tested with such systems, and we have similar designs, even if they are not widely advertised. In my view, we can only respond to Washington through the combination of military and diplomatic efforts. Diplomacy alone will not stop the construction of the US missile defense system."

For his part, Vasily Kashin, a senior researcher at the Institute of Far Eastern Studies, noted that Russian-Chinese cooperation in the field of missile defense is possibile, although a full-scale joint shield is unlikely.

At the same time, Kashin indicated, "creating a collective missile defense system in the framework of the SCO is not possible by definition, given the specifics of the organization and the policies of its members. For example, a country like Uzbekistan may have its own dissenting opinion on the issue, not to mention the positions of India and Pakistan," set to join the SCO in 2017.

"As for collective missile defense between Russia and China, it is an unlikely scenario, but possible, given that cooperation in this field already exists. China is now in the process of creating an early warning system, and is developing a strategy for missile defense, including theater missile defense."

In this sense, Kashin suggested, "Beijing is naturally interested in our experience and, possibly, in an automated system of data exchange. As we know, missiles, if they begin their flight from the continental United States, will fly to Russia and China over the North Pole. In principle, the exchange of data in the event of such a global strike may be of interest to our countries. Something of the kind has already been implemented by the US: The Americans receive real-time data from the early warning radar they sold to Taiwan, [and] the same thing seems likely with South Korea."

Still, according to the analyst, a genuine joint Russian-Chinese system of missile defense will most likely remain on the drawing board.

Evolution of SCO is a slow and gradual process. If we want the eaurasian region to remain peaceful and develop to its true potential...we need stability and peace.

Outside forces have tried for decades to keep SCO region backward and poor. OBOR will only succeed if there is Peace under the Heavens.

Sino-Russian cooperation is critical. They must provide security together. BMD is but just one component of it. Very vital of course.

Step in the right direction.

Russia is in a long struggle with the West and its puppets just like China is in.

No need to compare with Russia. Russia has awesome weaponary.

Russians provided weapons to the developing world countries during the 20th century to fight against the Western imperialism.

I have enormous respect for Russia especially the great man Putin!
