This time it’s Biden’s turn to panic? Important news is sent back from the direction of the South China Sea, and China is taking this step very steadily
As we all know, in addition to making waves in the Taiwan Strait recently, the United States has not let go of the South China Sea! After US Secretary of Defense Austin visited the Philippines, the situation in the South China Sea became tense again. On New Year’s Day this year, Philippine President Marcos Jr. visited China and made a promise to China that non-South China Sea countries would never be allowed to intervene in the South China Sea issue! Under this background, the whole world thought that the countries in the South China Sea had reached a consensus, and when they were about to unify to the outside world, no one expected that the Philippines would go back on its word!
Less than a month after Marcos returned to China, he directly reached a consensus with the United States on the military, expressing his willingness to increase the number of US military bases stationed in the Philippines from the previous five to nine! The purpose of the United States building a military base in the Philippines is obvious, and it is to better deal with China. Although the South China Sea issue is not China’s weakness, if the United States keeps making a fuss about the South China Sea issue, it will indeed bring a lot of trouble to China. In order to reduce For these troubles, China certainly needs a stable South China Sea and avoids non-South China Sea countries interfering in South China Sea affairs, but obviously not all countries think this way, and the Philippines is the best proof!
Fortunately, not all countries in the South China Sea are the same as the Philippines, Indonesia is the best proof! Recently, Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno said that he will accelerate negotiations with neighboring countries in the South China Sea and finalize the “Code of Conduct in the South China Sea” as soon as possible! It is reported that the negotiations on the code of conduct in the South China Sea will officially start in March this year. Not only that, the foreign ministers of ASEAN countries have also jointly called on neighboring countries to resolve the South China Sea issue through peaceful negotiations and avoid unnecessary military conflicts!
Many countries surrounding the South China Sea are members of ASEAN. I believe that with the promotion of China and ASEAN, the South China Sea Code of Conduct will be implemented as soon as possible! In this way, the conspiracy of the United States will be completely bankrupt! It needs to be emphasized that the reason why the South China Sea countries other than the Philippines choose China is mainly because China can bring them huge benefits! Take the joint development of resources in the South China Sea as an example, China contributes both effort and money! To put it bluntly, interests are the main reason why countries in the South China Sea are willing to coexist peacefully with China!
