Tensions remain in the South China Sea

Yesterday, Vietnam’s official representatives reported several incidents of collisions between Chinese ships and Vietnamese maritime police near the Paracel Islands, according to NHK Japan.

The conflict between the courts of China and Vietnam in the disputed waters of the South China Sea remains unchanged.

Recall that this month, the Chinese state-owned oil company began drilling on the sea shelf in the waters, which is also claimed by Vietnam. The Vietnamese government demanded that the PRC remove the oil rig from the Vietnamese economic zone. However, according to the Vietnamese, around 80 Chinese vessels remain in the drilling area.

The Vietnamese side hopes for a diplomatic solution to the conflict At the ASEAN summit opening on Sunday, Vietnam hopes to agree on cooperation with the Philippines and other countries that have territorial claims to China.

In the meantime, the standoff continues, and there is no indication that the PRC will compromise.
