CONFLICT IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA

CONFLICT IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA
Organizer: Georgia Council for International Visitors
Speaker: Dr. John Garver
The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant.
The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified disputes with other countries in the region in recent years, especially since China has increased its naval presence. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region. Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.

India's involvement in the conflict includes:
Chinese objection to Indian naval presence and oil exploration
In 2012 the Indian Ambassador to Vietnam, while expressing concern over rising tension in the area, said that 50 per cent of its trade passes through the area and called for peaceful resolution of the disputes in accordance with international law.
