The situation in the South China Sea requires restraint from all parties to the conflict

As tension escalates around the disputed territories in the South China Sea, calls are increasingly being made by leaders of South-East Asian countries to refrain from actions that could aggravate the situation, writes Bloomberg.com.

After the conclusion of the ASEAN summit in Myanmar, the foreign ministers of the participating countries made a collective statement that China should avoid actions that undermine peace and stability in the South China Sea.

But not everyone is ready for a peaceful settlement of the conflict. For example, Liu Jingen, a professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing, believes that Japan and the United States will side with Vietnam and the Philippines, thereby complicating the situation in the region. And Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dun said in Myanmar that Vietnam had shown restraint and goodwill, having tried in dialogue with China all the ways to convince the PRC to remove the oil rig and warships from the territorial waters of Vietnam. According to Nguyen Tan Dong, Vietnam intends to "defend its state sovereignty and legitimate interests."
