China on South China Sea

Local News

China would like to resort to the “dual-track” approach to resolve the South China Sea issue, a foreign ministry spokesman said.

Spokesman Lu Kang made the remarks in response to claims that Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines’ President-Elect, once said that he will settle disputes over the South China Sea issue through multilateral talks with United States, Japan and Australia and other territory claimant nations and he will allow joint exploitation of offshore oil and gas with China.

China advocates that prior to a settlement of the disputes, the countries in the region should set rules, establish mechanisms to control disputes and strive for win-win results through exploitation and cooperation, Lu added.

It means the disputes should be resolved peacefully through negotiations between the parties directly involved on the basis of respect of history and in line with international laws.
