South China Sea: China Goes Wild Over Japan, Consequences To Be Grave

Tensions in the South China Sea have gone up after Japan sealed a military deal with the United States. China has gone wild over the said cooperation and warned Japan about proceeding with its plans. Will Japan push China’s button enough to trigger a new world war?

The Chinese Foreign Ministry voiced its disappointment over Japan’s decision to conduct patrols with the United States in the disputed region of the South China Sea. According to the ministry, Japan is risking the escalation of tension in the area. Previously, China has warned the United States over interfering with the affairs in the Asia Pacific.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang expressed disappointment over Japan’s decision, saying that it went to a point of despair. The official also said that Japan’s move will confuse the situation in the region. China advocated previously that Asian countries resolve the matter on their own.

“Let’s have a look at the results of Japan’s throwing things into disorder over this same time period… trying to confuse the South China Sea situation under the pretense of [acting for] the international community,” Sputnik quoted the official.

Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada confirmed that Japan will be conducting joint drills with the U.S. on top of military assistance and other coordination.

“These Chinese actions constitute its deliberate attempt to unilaterally change the status quo, achieve a fait accompli, and undermine the prevailing norms,” Inada said in a speech at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies.

According to Yahoo, Japan also shares a different territorial dispute with China in the East China Sea, which could further complicate the matter. In the last few months, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called out China for ignoring the ruling from the international tribunal. Beijing played deaf even if the international organization ruled in favor of the Philippines.
