On the 14th, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Hua Chunying sent 11 tweets in a row, listing 10 basic facts to counter Pompeo.
1.“The South China Sea intermittent line was not announced by China in 2009. As early as 1948, it was included in the first version of the official South China Sea map published by the Chinese government (“South China Sea Islands Location Map”) The South China Sea intermittent line is drawn. This version of the map is also used by successive governments and has not been questioned by any country.”
2. “Chinese people’s activities in the South China Sea region can be traced back to more than 2000 years ago. Territorial sovereignty and related rights are established in a long historical process, firmly established on the basis of history and law.”
3. “More than 70 years ago, China legally recovered Nansha illegally occupied by Japan Archipelago and the Xisha Islands, and resumed the exercise of sovereignty. In fact, the warships used by China to recover these islands were provided by the United States.”
4.“China is committed to maintaining the navigation and navigation in the South China Sea enjoyed by all countries in accordance with international law Flying over freedom. This freedom has never encountered any problems, and we have never heard of any country complaining about this.”
5. “In the disputed waters of the South China Sea, no oil well belongs to China.”
6.“It is the United States, not China, who firmly believes that’power is axiom’ and resorts to force and intimidation everywhere. It is the color revolution and the illegal war that have left millions of Iraqi, Libyan and Afghan people displaced (also) It’s the US. China has never launched Any war. ”
7. “The United States, not China, upholds the predatory worldview. China upholds the idea of a community with a shared future for mankind, as well as sincere and gracious surrounding diplomacy. ”
8.“The United States, tens of thousands of kilometers away from the South China Sea, frequently sends advanced military aircraft to the region to show muscles, destabilizing the South China Sea. China, as an independent sovereign state, has the right to refuse bullying and unfair behavior. ”
9.“The United States has not acceded to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, but has always accused China of violating the convention. hypocritical. ”
10.“Consultations on the’South China Sea Code of Conduct’ (COC) are being accelerated in an orderly manner. The second draft of the consultation text has started. Both China and ASEAN members agreed to conclude the COC as soon as possible. No external interference can undermine such efforts. ”
7 On the 14th, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian hosted a regular press conference to fight back against the United States and the South China Sea. Statement:Provoking separation will not succeed.
The United States declares that it ignores the historical latitude and longitude and objectiveness of the South China Sea issue In fact, it is irresponsible to violate the U.S. government’s open commitment to the South China Sea’s sovereignty, violate and distort international law, deliberately provoke territorial maritime disputes, and undermine regional peace and stability.
In a statement, the US stated that China only officially declared the South China Sea intermittent line in 2009, which is completely inconsistent with the facts. China’s sovereignty and rights in the South China Sea were formed in a long-term historical process. China’s effective exercise of relevant islands and reefs in the South China Sea and related waters Jurisdiction has reached thousands of years. As early as 1948, the Chinese government officially announced the South China Sea discontinuous line, which has not been questioned by any country for a long time. China’s territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests in the South China Sea have sufficient historical and legal basis, which is in line with Relevant international law and international practice.
China never seeks to establish an”ocean empire” in the South China Sea, always treats countries surrounding the South China Sea as equals, and always maintains maximum restraint in safeguarding the sovereignty and rights of the South China Sea. On the contrary, the United States Refuse to join the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, frequently”break the contract and retreat from the group” internationally, and discard international law if it is not appropriate, frequently dispatch large-scale advanced warships and military aircraft to militarize the South China Sea, implement power logic and hegemonic practices, the United States It is the disruptors and troublemakers of peace and stability in the region that the international community sees very clearly.
China’s position on the South China Sea arbitration and its so-called awards is consistent, clear and firm. The arbitral tribunal violated the principle of”state consent” and tried unreasonably. There were obvious mistakes in the determination of facts and the application of the law. Many countries have questioned. The US side’s use of speculation in arbitration to serve its own political purpose is an abuse of international maritime law. China will never Accept.
According to the”Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea” reached by China and ASEAN countries in 2002, China has always been committed to resolving disputes related to territories and jurisdictions through negotiations and negotiations with directly related sovereign states. ASEAN countries work together to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea. At present, with the joint efforts of China and ASEAN countries, the situation in the South China Sea is generally stable. China and ASEAN countries not only abide by the”Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea”, but are also intensifying discussions on the more binding”South China Sea Act””Guidelines” to jointly maintain peace and stability and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, and relevant consultations have made positive progress. The relationship between China and ASEAN countries has been further consolidated and developed in the cooperation in epidemic prevention and epidemic prevention.
As an extraterritorial country, the United States, out of its own self-interest, fears that the South China Sea will not be chaotic. It will do everything possible to provoke right and wrong in the South China Sea. It will make troubles in the South China Sea. The relationship between the countries in the separated regions and China will interfere with efforts to undermine the peace and stability of the South China Sea between China and ASEAN countries. The US statement also deliberately distorted the speech of the Chinese representative attending the 2010 ASEAN Regional Forum Foreign Ministers’ Meeting. The fact is that the Chinese representative stated at the meeting that China has always advocated that all countries, big or small, are equal. The resolution of relevant disputes should be based on the merits, and the direct parties should settle peacefully through negotiation and consultation. The US side’s attempt to provoke alienation will never succeed.
We express our strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to the wrong actions of the US side, and urge the US side to stop creating troubles on the South China Sea issue and not to go further and further on the wrong path. China will continue to resolutely safeguard its sovereignty and security in accordance with the law, resolutely maintain friendly and cooperative relations with regional countries, and resolutely maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea.
