Vietnam is modernising its military and fostering ties with the US and other countries. In a broader context of US-China competition, it seems that Vietnam will play an increasingly important role; but at the same time, this will put it in a collision course with the China, with potentially detrimental consequences for international security and for the regional stability of an area marked by territorial disputes. Only time will tell what will happen, but it seems that Sino-Vietnamese relations will follow a downgrading course in the coming years.

South China Sea: the Navy’s top officer says the US and China will ‘meet more and more on high seas’
 
10:45
Chief of US Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said on Tuesday the US and China “will meet each other more and more on the high seas” after a Chinese warship came close to a US ship in the disputed South China Sea. The Chinese vessel came within 45 yards of the USS Decatur during a “freedom of navigation” sail in late September, US Vice President Mike Pence said this month. The US mission was the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing’s efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese, and some Southeast Asian navies operate. In the weeks since, a US Navy research ship has visited Taiwan and two US warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait. China considers Taiwan a breakaway province and has bolstered its presence around the island country. In mid-October, during a meeting with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the US and its partners in the region would “continue to fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows and our national interests demand.”

China's Maritime Disputes in the South China Sea and East China Sea
 
07:26
-- This video is part of the Council on Foreign Relations "China's Maritime Disputes" InfoGuide Presentation: http://cfr.org/chinasea -- Video: Preventative Measures: http://on.cfr.org/17xUJXJ Video: Crisis Management: http://on.cfr.org/HteSC8 The East and South China Seas are the scene of escalating territorial disputes between China and its neighbors, including Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The tensions, shaped by China's growing assertiveness, have fueled concerns over armed conflict and raised questions about Washington's security commitments in its strategic rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region. "Maritime disputes in the East and South China Seas are a pressing issue for the United States, China, and much of the rest of the world," says Elizabeth Economy, CFR's Director for Asia Studies. The region is rich in natural resources, home to many of the world's most dynamic economies, and an important global trade route for energy supplies and other goods. It is also a region in which power politics are at play and defense budgets are rising rapidly. As China's economic ascent facilitates growing military capabilities and assertiveness in both the East and South China Seas, other regional players are also experiencing their own rise in nationalism and military capability, and have exhibited greater willingness to stake territorial claims. Meanwhile, the U.S. "pivot" to Asia, involving renewed diplomatic activity and military redeployment, could signal Washington's heightened role in the disputes. If not managed wisely, these disputes could turn part of Asia's maritime regions from thriving trade channels into arenas of conflict. "If there is a use of force between Japan and China, this could be a full-on, all -out conflict between these two Asian giants, and as a treaty ally of Japan, will automatically trigger or automatically involve the United States," cautions Sheila A. Smith, CFR's Senior Fellow for Japan Studies. These dynamics pose an "exquisite" dilemma for U.S. foreign policy, says CFR President Richard N. Haass. "The danger is that twenty-first-century Asia could begin to go the way of twentieth-century Europe."

The Modern Origins of China's South China Sea Claim
 
01:00:01
The CSIS Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative and the Southeast Asia Program are pleased to invite you to a discussion with Bill Hayton, associate fellow at Chatham House. Hayton will argue that the current tensions in the South China Sea can be traced back to the muddled origins of China’s claims in the early twentieth century. He will show evidence that China’s claim to islands in the South China Sea emerged in 1909 and was further developed after 1933. He will explain how Chinese academics and officials came to draw the “U-shaped line” by copying Western maps—and in the process incorporated mistakes and misunderstandings with consequences that still trouble the region decades later. Bill Hayton is an associate fellow of Chatham House and a journalist with the BBC. He is the author of The South China Sea: The Struggle for Power in Asia, named one of The Economist’s Books of the Year in 2014. His previous book Vietnam: Rising Dragon describes the diplomatic, social, political, and economic issues facing modern Vietnam. Hayton has presented widely on the South China Sea and other Southeast Asian issues in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
South china sea: A New British Military Base in Southeast Asia?

A New British Military Base in Southeast Asia? SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A closer look at the recent hype and the broader inroads Britain has been trying to make in the region of late. Comments by British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson about new potential British bases in Southeast Asia last month have unsurprisingly grabbed international headlines. While the hype itself is far from surprising, it has nonetheless spotlighted some of the broader inroads Britain has been trying to make in the region in the defense realm in recent years amid the confluence of wider domestic and regional trends. The idea of British military presence in Southeast Asia as well as a globally is of course far from new. Even as its position as a colonial power there declined, Britain continued to maintain a significant military presence in Southeast Asia until its announced withdrawal ‘East of Suez’ in 1968 under then Prime Minister Harold Wilson. And while Britain’s role in the region today is often viewed non-militarily in terms of wider popular perceptions, it in fact still continues to maintain an important defense presence in some of these countries, whether to support bilateral activities such as training and capacity-building or wider multilateral engagements such as activities tied to the Five Power Defense Arrangements (FPDA), an enduring collective security agreement that also includes Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. That said, over the past few years, British policymakers have sought to reemphasize the country’s role in the Asia-Pacific in general and Southeast Asia more directly and specifically, including in the defense realm. This is due to a confluence of internal and external trends, including Asia’s own growing prominence as a region of interest, rising concerns about aspects of Chinese regional behavior, as well as Britain’s own Brexit predicament, which has raised questions about the future shape of its global role and rein... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Report Launch: Defusing the South China Sea Disputes: A Regional Blueprint
 
01:36:41
--------------------------------------------------------------------- Please join us for the launch of Defusing the South China Sea Disputes: A Regional Blueprint by the CSIS Expert Working Group on the South China Sea, which brings together prominent experts on maritime law, international relations, and the marine environment from China, Southeast Asia, and beyond. Members of the group gathered three times between July 2017 and July 2018 to discuss issues that they consider necessary for the successful management of the South China Sea disputes, and produced blueprints for a path forward on each. The members believe these three proposed agreements add up to a robust model for managing the South China Sea disputes, one which would be both legally and politically feasible for all parties. The working group includes a diverse set of 27 experts from claimant states and interested countries, including the United States. It is chaired by Gregory Poling, director of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative at CSIS. All members take part in their personal capacities, not as representatives of their home institutions. They are invited to join the group based on their subject matter expertise and willingness to reach creative compromises.

South china sea : Britain’s planned naval base seen as ‘muscle-flexing’ against China SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Britain’s plan to build a new military base in Southeast Asia is likely to further complicate the strategic landscape in a region already fraught with maritime disputes and geopolitical rivalry between Beijing and Washington, Chinese analysts warn. The plan was unveiled by British defence secretary Gavin Williamson during an interview with The Sunday Telegraph this week, with possible sites including Singapore and Brunei. If it goes ahead, the move could cast a shadow over China’s relations with its Asian neighbours and would risk further inflaming tensions between Beijing and London after a British warship sailed close to the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, according to the experts. “It is clearly a muscle-flexing gesture targeting China and shows closer engagement of external powers in the South China Sea disputes,” said Xu Liping, a professor at the Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Williamson said Britain would open two new military bases in “a couple of years”, including one in the Caribbean, saying it would help the country to return as a “true global player” after Brexit. “This is our biggest moment as a nation since the end of the second world w.ar, when we can recast ourselves in a different way, we can actually play the role on the world stage that the world expects us to play,” he was quoted as saying. British companies in China optimistic about Brexit’s effect The move marks a policy shift from Britain’s withdrawal from military bases in Southeast Asia and the Persian Gulf in the 1960s. Ni Lexiong, a naval expert at the Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, also said the plan was more evidence of Britain and other key American allies increasingly aligning themselves with US President Donald Trump’s hardline approach on China. “It is a complementary step to Washington’s Indo-Pacific... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

South china sea : Consequences Of The US-China Contest For Asia – Analysis SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The burgeoning US-China contest for the minds and hearts of Asian nations is stressing and straining some countries’ domestic politics and posing increasingly difficult choices for their leadership.  How and why is this so and what are some of the consequences. In the past, Asian countries were often prioritized by US analysts and policy makers as to their degree of pro American-ness.  But now they are increasingly being assessed as to the kind and degree of accommodation to China. The US cannot match China’s economic prowess and largesse and seems to hope that its political, social and economic systems and –more importantly– its values will be sufficient to keep much of Asia in its camp.  But this is increasingly proving to be a false hope.  So the U.S. is falling back on its tried and true advantage—dominant military power and the threat of its use.  But even in this sphere China is making rapid advances and the looming specter of its eventual domination of the region is progressively stimulating hedging and even forcing some Asian countries to consider choosing between the two.  Indeed, China has made considerable advances in military to military relations with Southeast Asian countries, previously almost exclusively dominated by the U.S.  and  its allies. On 27-28 October 2018, China, Malaysia and Thailand implemented their first ever tri-lateral military exercise in the strategic Malacca Strait. https://www.rfa.org/english/news/china/malaysia-naval-10182018180437.html From 22-28 October, China and ASEAN implemented the first China -ASEAN maritime exercises. https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/china-asean-should-hold-more-exercises-ng-eng-hen The U.S. and Australia were not invited.  The participation of Southeast Asian nations implied their acknowledgement of China’s right to a military role in the region.  Chinese State Councilor and National Defense M... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

South China Sea Maritime Dispute: Political, Legal & Regional Perspectives
 
01:28:28
The South China Sea is a major strategic waterway for trade and energy shipments to Asia’s major economies. It has been the focus of maritime disputes which have continued for more than six decades, with competing claims from China, Vietnam, the Philippines and others. In recent years, growing Chinese assertiveness in pressing its claims has unsettled the regional security order, drawing the attention of the United States, Australia and other powers concerned about freedom of navigation and a rules-based order. The springboard for this discussion is the recently published book, edited by Leszek Buszynski and Christopher Roberts, which examines the South China Sea as an ongoing maritime dispute which has become a potential conflict zone. This volume is the final outcome of a National Security College collaborative research project, which involved a number of present and former academic staff from both the College and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre at ANU. The book examines the conflict potential of the current dispute, discusses how the main claimants and the United States view the issue, and assesses the prospects for resolution or management of the problem. The panelists discuss the arguments of the book in the light of recent developments, such as China’s ‘island-building’ activities and the Philippines case before the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. There is a particular focus on four questions: · What are the security risks arising from continuing tensions in the South China Sea, including to Australia’s interests? . What are the contours of a possible resolution to the South China Sea disputes? · Is resolution a realistic option? · Do dispute management and confidence-building measures comprise a more feasible set of options for preventing conflict, and how would these work? video thumbnail courtesy: South China Morning Post

The Philippines, Vietnam, and Territorial Disputes in the South China Sea
 
02:00:37
As Beijing continues to trumpet its “New Type of Great Power Relationship” with the United States, and the United States attempts to buttress its “Rebalance to Asia”, Asia-Pacific nations keep a close eye on relations between the two giants. http://www.wilsoncenter.org/event/the-philippines-vietnam-and-territorial-disputes-the-south-china-sea New questions about China’s intentions and America’s commitments in the region seem to arise every week of late. Tensions are flaring over the Philippines’ arrest of Chinese poachers in its exclusive economic zone, over Chinese reconstruction of a reef in the Spratley Islands, and over Chinese drilling near the disputed Paracel Islands and the protests that ensued in Hanoi. Dr. Aileen Baviera of the University of the Philippines and Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan of the Institute for Foreign Policy and Strategic Studies of the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam discussed their respective countries’ interests in the region and their perspectives on Sino-U.S. cooperation and competition in Asia-Pacific. This event was part of the Wilson Center’s Weighing the Rebalance Series, a joint effort of the Asia Program and the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States. This three-year series brings regional experts to Washington to analyze Chinese and American roles in Asia-Pacific from the viewpoints of countries affected by Sino-U.S. competition and cooperation. The Series will conclude with a multilateral conference and publication of policy-briefs for policymakers in Washington and Beijing.

South china sea: US steps-up counter-China measures with the Asia Resurgence Initiative Act SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Beijing has long-term plans to replace the US as the last year’s 19th Communist Party Congress envisaged to occupy the “centre stage”. By Srikanth Kondapalli The United States President Donald Trump’s recent signing of the bipartisan-supported bill on Asia Reassurance Initiative Act (ARIA) is part of a series of measures to counter challenges emanating from China. Four decades of reform in China– ironically with the help of the US – has not led to either a democratic China as Henry Kissinger envisaged, or a co-habiting power. On the other hand, Beijing has long-term plans to replace the US as the last year’s 19th Communist Party Congress envisaged to occupy the “centre stage”. Beijing as well is preparing for “two centennials” – of rejuvenating the Communist Party at its hundredth anniversary in 2021 and that of People’s Republic by 2049. That the relations between the two largest economies is not well is reflected in the emerging tariff wars in the last six months, despite a 90-day truce cobbled up at the G-20 meeting at Buenos Aires. The US imposition of over $250 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods was retaliated equally by China, despite a whopping $350 billion in trade surpluses that Beijing enjoyed. Balance of payments in favour of Beijing vis-à-vis the US cumulatively amounts to trillions. Read | Good news for businesses!

The U.S., China, and the Geopolitics of the South China Sea The South China Sea is among the world’s epicenters of geopolitical competition. 30 percent of all global trade ($5.3 trillion) passes through the waterway each year. China and its East Asian neighbors, including Indonesia, Japan, The Philippines, and Vietnam all have territorial claims, and established maritime defenses. Meanwhile in its pivot to Asia, the United States has been conducting freedom of navigation tours of its vessels in waters claimed by China. How can the U.S and China reduce the risk of conflict, and work on a peaceful and equitable resolution in this pivotal international waterway? Participants: Cortez A.

British Defence Minister Gavin Williamson said earlier that that the UK military was working on plans to build at least two new overseas bases “within the next couple of years.”Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Saturday that while the UK had the right to consider such plans, Moscow would not hesitate to react against any threats posed by London’s military expansion.“In the event of any measures that pose a threat to Russia’s security or that of its allies our country reserves the right to take appropriate retaliatory measures,” she warned. Zakharova described Williamson’s comments as “counter-productive,” warning that the UK’s military plans could cause instability considering the current state of world affairs.“The pronouncements by the UK defence secretary in favor of further militarizing the British policy cause at least bewilderment,” the diplomat said. Williamson has yet to specify where the bases might be built. However, citing unnamed military sources, The Telegraph said they could be built in Singapore and Brunei. The UK has long been flaring up tensions with Russia over what it described earlier last year as a growing threat from Moscow. It has also been showing interest in supporting Ukraine in a standoff with Russia over the Crimean Peninsula. Back in November, London warned Moscow against using its growing military presence in the Sea of Azov, a strategic ocean route linked to the Black Sea by the narrow Strait of Kerch, where Russia has built a bridge to link the Crimean Peninsula with the mainland.

Reuters reports that the United States and Britain held their first joint drills in the South China Sea since Beijing built island bases in the disputed waters. According to a US Navy press release, the Arleigh-Burke guided missile destroyer USS McCampbell and the Royal Navy Type 23 frigate HMS Argyll conducted joint operations in the South China Sea from January 11 to 16. The two vessels reportedly carried out communication drills, combined maneuvers, and personnel exchange during the week ‘to address common maritime security priorities.’ The USS McCampbell is based in Japan, while the HMS Argyll is on a tour of Asia. According to a U.S. Navy spokesman, such drills have not been conducted in the South China Sea since at least 2010. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1.

According to a U.S. Navy spokesman, such drills have not been conducted in the South China Sea since at least 2010.” “CNN reports that the move is expected to antagonize China, which lays claim to the entire area based on a nebulous nine-dash line.” “This claim is contested by the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, and Taiwan, who all have overlapping territorial claims based on geographical proximity.” “The U.S. regularly holds freedom of navigation operations to challenge China’s excessive maritime claims, such as when the USS McCampbell sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands earlier this month.” “The British warship HMS Albion also sailed close to the Paracels last August, prompting Beijing to accuse London of engaging in ‘provocation.’” “In both instances, China responded to what they perceive as hostile gestures by deploying aircrafts and ships to challenge the vessels.” “Chinese state media CCTV reported on January 8 that DF-26 ballistic missiles capable of targeting medium and large ships have been deployed to the northwest plateau.” “According to the Japan Times, the UK-US joint drill also comes on the heels of a trilateral anti-submarine warfare exercise on December 21 to 22, involving a U.S. navy submarine, the Royal Navy’s HMS Argyll, and Japan’s JS Izumo helicopter destroyer.” SOURCES: U.S. Navy, Royal Navy, CNN, Reuters, Japan Times https://www.cpf.navy.mil/news.aspx/130413?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_content=100000433432418&utm_campaign=Misc https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/news-and-latest-activity/news/2019/january/16/190116-argylls-us-link-up-south-china-sea https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/16/asia/uk-us-south-china-sea-intl/index.html https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-britain-southchinasea/u-s-uk-conduct-first-joint-drills-in-contested-south-china-sea-idUKKCN1PA0PJ https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/01/16/asia-pacific/u-s-british-navies-conduct-first-joint-military-exercises-disputed-south-china-sea/#.XD_ra88za8o ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

The Strategic Significance of the South China Sea: American, Asian, and International Perspectives 1
 
48:30
Introductory remarks by Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Arthur Herman, followed by Keynote remarks from Admiral Gary Roughead (Ret.), “The South China Sea Through Three Lenses” The islands and waterways that cover the South China Sea have long been at the center of territorial disputes among regional rivals. Today, however, the region is one of the most fiercely disputed waterways and hottest flashpoints in the world. Due in large part to the almost $3.5 trillion of maritime trade that flows through this international waterway, it has become an escalating source of confrontation between China and the United States. On February 1st, Hudson Institute hosted a high-level symposium to discuss the new strategic significance of the South China Sea for Asian and American national interests. In particular, our speakers will examine the origins and geopolitical, economic, and military implications of China’s aggressive strategy in the South China Sea, and consider potential counter strategies that other nations, including the United States, might pursue to preserve and protect peace and stability throughout the region. - Captured Live on Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/hudson-institute

THE SOUTH CHINA SEA: Russia sees "potential winner" in Southeast Asia.| Hot News. What Russia can search term in Southeast Asia is the position of the external powers are respected and not to intervene in order to help maintain a balance in an area at risk of high volatility. According to Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow Center, chairman of the Research and Security Policy Program, PR, when all the recent focus on the Middle East are driving, and especially Syria, the South China sea continue to be playing mainly in the competition between the major powers in the world. There, tensions between China and the US continue to rise, even the real crisis in this relationship remains grave. While China, with measures to strengthen the change the status quo in the region to establish a dominant position in East Asia, the US is struggling to maintain the boundaries drawn from the Cold War. On the other hand, 10 Southeast Asian countries are members of ASEAN. However, they all pursue the independent foreign policy. Some members have close ties with Beijing, some of them have friendly relations with Washington. My channel here: http://bit.ly/2bekG3G URL video: http://bit.ly/2eDKDcP G+ here: http://bit.ly/2ceByt8

China ANGRY: The UK has announced plans to establish a new Asian naval base

China ANGRY: The UK has announced plans to establish a new Asian naval base - THE UK’s plan to build an Asian naval base is “clearly a muscle-flexing gesture targeting China”, according to an academic at an institute funded by China. The UK has announced plans to establish a new Asian naval base. The base will likely be in Brunei or Singapore. It is a move Taiwan has welcomed but China is likely to lament. Responding to news of the plan, Xu Liping, a professor at the Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the South China Morning Post: “It is clearly a muscle-flexing gesture targeting China and shows closer engagement of external powers in the South China Sea disputes. The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences is a state-funded institute, which admits its programmes are “both academic and policy-oriented”. Xu’s comments came after Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson confirmed last week the UK aims to establish a new naval base somewhere in Asia in the coming years. Mr Williamson said: “This is our biggest moment as a nation since the end of the Second World War. “This is our moment to be that true global player once more – and I think the armed forces play a really important role as part of that. The plans coincide with what Theresa May said last January about building a “global Britain” post-Brexit. Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also stated at the time the UK would be “more committed to the Asia-Pacific region” and after decades of moving its military interests westwards. The South China Sea is a contested naval strait with many nations believing they have a claim to the tactical stretch of sea. China, along with several of its neighbours including the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan, has been involved in a decades-long dispute over who controls the marginal sea that is part of the Pacific Ocean. Xi Jinping's superstate claims most of the sea as its territory but China’s neighbours argue parts of the area belong to them. Tensions have skyrocketed in recent years and resulted in the involvement of the US. US officials have warned of China’s growing military dominance, especially in the context of the superpower’s far side of the moon landing last week. Of the historic feat, Bob Walker, the space adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, told The Sunday Telegraph: “It's part of a more total Chinese effort. “This is an indication China has the capability to use the moon for military matters. “If you look at what they're doing in the South China Sea, there are a number of elements to what the People's Liberation Army is doing in terms of aggressive military policy but space is a very big one. And the Pentagon warned earlier this year China’s ambitious space programme was part of Chinese military plans to make space “central to modern warfare”.
