Washington's interests if the dispute in the South China

BEIJING Nike Odyssey React Women's Casual Arctic Pink White , May 14 (Xinhua) -- In a reckless move that further undermined the peace of South China Sea, Manila went ahead with a premeditated plot to provoke Beijing in a vain wish to infringe upon China's sovereignty.

Last week, Philippine police detained 11 Chinese fishermen and their boat near China's Half Moon Shoal in the South China Sea on the grounds that they poached sea turtles.

But no matter the allegation was true or not, Manila was wrong in the first place because China has indisputable sovereign rights over the Nansha Islands and the adjacent waters, including the Half Moon Shoal Nike Odyssey React Black Women's , where the incident occurred.

Thus any actions taken by the Philippines against the Chinese fishermen are illegal and invalid and would be regarded as direct infringements of China's sovereignty.

The timing of the incident is tricky, as it happened not long after U.S. President Barack Obama's recent visit to Manila, during which the two sides reasserted their military alliance.

The provocation also came days before the annual summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), during which the emboldened Philippines, together with Vietnam Nike Odyssey React Desert Sand Sail Pink Women's , launched a failed bid to pit the regional bloc against Beijing over territory claims.

The Manila-Hanoi cohort evokes reminiscence of a Philippine naval delegation's beer drinking and volleyball playing with Vietnamese sailors in the South China Sea in April, widely read by the media as the two countries' budding nascent partnership amid their growing row with Beijing over contested waters.

But that kind of ill-disposed joint venture is built on shaky grounds and is doomed to fail.

While reiterating calls for peaceful settlement of the dispute and joint development of resources, China has also made it clear that it is confident and capable of countering challenges to its territorial and sovereign integrity.

All parties should also be reminded that ignorance of China's resolve to defend its sovereign land will induce consequences too severe for certain countries to bear.

Meanwhile, the wish to maintain regional peace and stability is shared by China and the majority of ASEAN members.

The United States, which is strengthening military alliance with Manila and has a huge stake in the region's stability Nike Epic React Flyknit Pure Platinum Black Blue Women's , should comply with its promise to leave the countries concerned to settle their differences through bilateral talks.

Instead of spoiling its increasingly-paranoid junior ally and muddying the waters, Washington should keep Manila within bounds and try not to stir up tensions by backing it in territorial dispute.

After all, it won't serve Washington's interests if the dispute in the South China Sea spins out of control.


KIEV, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said here Friday that a truce between his government' s troops and independence-seeking insurgents has resulted in the first day free of shooting since the conflict in eastern regions erupted in April 2014.

""Today is the first day in a year and a half, when there were no shooting and combat casualties in the past 24 hours Nike Epic React Flyknit Blue Women's ,"" Poroshenko said at the 12th Yalta European Strategy (YES) conference in Kiev.

The insurgent leadership has confirmed that there were no ceasefire violations in Donetsk and Lugansk regions over the past 24 hours.

Later in the day, former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, who is Kiev's representative at the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine crisis, said that the cessation of hostilities is paving the way for signing a deal on the withdrawal of weapons with caliber under 100 millimeters from the frontline.

Kuchma voiced the hope that the agreement, which is seen as vital to put an end to the bloody conflict which claimed almost 8 Nike Epic React Flyknit Women's Grey White ,000 lives, will be signed during the next meeting of the Contact Group on Sept. 22 in Minsk.

The truce in eastern Ukraine was established on Sept.1 following the meeting of the Contact Group on Aug. 26, during which the conflicting sides agreed to fully cease the hostilities to ensure security of children at the start of the new school year.
