This version of the map has also been used by successive governments and has not received any The country questioned.”

Zhao Lijian’s super long counterattack:
Provocative separation will not succeed
On the same day, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian hosted a regular press conference. A reporter asked:On the 13th local time, the US State Department issued a statement saying that many of China’s claims in the South China Sea have no basis in international law; What is your comment here?
Zhao Lijian said that the US statement disregards the historical latitude and longitude and objective facts of the South China Sea issue, violates the US government’s open commitment to the South China Sea’s sovereignty, and violates and distorts international law, It is irresponsible to deliberately provoke territorial maritime disputes and undermine regional peace and stability.
Zhao Lijian pointed out that the US stated in its statement that China only officially announced the South China Sea intermittent line in 2009. It is completely inconsistent with the facts. China’s sovereignty and rights in the South China Sea have been formed over a long history. China has exercised effective jurisdiction over the islands, reefs and related waters of the South China Sea for thousands of years. As early as 1948, the Chinese government officially announced the South China Sea The intermittent line 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 a full historical and legal basis and are consistent with relevant international law and international practice.
Zhao Lijian emphasized that 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 Refusing to join the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, frequently “withdrawing groups and breaking contracts” at the international level, and discarding international law if it is not appropriate, frequently dispatching large-scale advanced warships and military aircraft to militarize the South China Sea, promoting power logic and hegemony, 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 safeguard peace and stability and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, and relevant consultations have made positive progress. China and ASEAN countries Family relations have been further consolidated and developed in the epidemic prevention cooperation.
Zhao Lijian pointed out:As an extraterritorial country, the United States, out of its own self-interest, fears that the South China Sea will not be chaotic, and will do everything possible to provoke right and wrong in the South China Sea. Efforts to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea. 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 American side’s attempt to provoke alienation will never succeed.
Zhao Lijian said that we express 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.
