As soon as a statement concerning the South China Sea was issued, the US destroyer immediately crossed the red line and broke into 12 nautical miles of Nansha Island and Reef
On July 13, the US State Department issued a distorted international law statement denying my country’s legitimate rights and interests in the South China Sea. For the first time, the Chinese embassy in the United States and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs jointly voiced a counterattack on the US’s wrong approach. However, the United States not only ignored the criticisms and condemnations of our country, but also made a plan immediately after the statement was issued to make a determined move to go black.
The U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet released the news that the US destroyer”Ralph Johnson” was in China’s Nansha Huayang Reef and Yongshu Jiao“harmless passage” within 12 nautical miles. In response to the practice of crossing the red line and breaking into the 12-nautical-mile range of my country’s southern islands and reefs, the US Navy also shamelessly declared it as”maintaining the right to free and legal use of the oceans recognized by international law.”
It is understood that the destroyer”Ralph Johnson” It is an Ally Burke-class destroyer, belonging to the 11th aircraft carrier strike of the US Navy”Nimitz” aircraft carrier battle group Brigade. After the destroyer”Ralph Johnson” entered service in 2018, he often followed the aircraft carrier”Nimitz” to carry out the so-called”freedom of navigation” activities in the surrounding waters of my country, which can be said to be inferior. The”innocent passage” that broke into the 12-nautical-mile range of my country’s southern islands and reefs this time added another evil to this already inferior destroyer.
As soon as the statement concerning the South China Sea was issued, the US warship immediately broke into 12 nautical miles of my country’s southern islands and reefs, and the destroyer”Ralph Johnson” came with a purpose. According to the US Navy, the main purpose is to implement the so-called statement concerning the South China Sea issued by the United States Navy, and to prove with practical actions that the statement of the US State Department does not just stay on paper.
Second, it is to provoke the country and the countries around the South China Sea The relationship between China and China has been in a state of exhaustion in coping with the South China Sea issue. As we all know, my country has owned most of the rights and interests of the South China Sea since ancient times, but several countries, led by Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines, regardless of the facts, demanded a redistribution of rights and interests in the South China Sea.
The differences between China and neighboring countries in the South China Sea have allowed the United States to see the opportunity to intervene in the situation in the region, so it has used its own powerful force to fabricate its so-called”freedom of navigation” activities, and used it as an excuse to use it in the South China Sea. Daxiu Muscle creates an atmosphere of tension, and attempts to create a strategic misjudgment for countries with differences in our country to create rights and interests that can be eaten away in the South China Sea.
After successfully creating the illusion of strategic misjudgment, the United States began to In the name of “backing up”, the related countries continue to widen their differences with our country in the South China Sea, so that these countries can form a long-term pull with our country to strategically contain our country. It is conceivable that after the announcement of the United States’ non-recognition of my country’s rights and interests in the South China Sea, the noise will grow louder.
In addition to provoking China’s relations with neighboring countries in the South China Sea, the so-called US statement also contains the meaning of curbing the rise of China. To put it bluntly, this statement is to provide the”Indo-Pacific Strategy” with access to the South China Sea. Support points set up on the basis of excuses and reasons, otherwise it would seem a little”notorious and unjustifiable” to intervene in China’s South China Sea issue.
The United States uses China’s core interests in the South China Sea as a springboard to contain China This kind of detrimental behavior will never be tolerated. On the one hand, it will make the situation in the South China Sea more complicated, and on the other hand, it will encourage the arrogance of the provocation of the United States. Therefore, our country should fight back at an appropriate time.
