The former is the main dispute and the latter secondary. Because of the complexity and sensitivity of the territorial issues involved, no country wants to compromise or make concessions.The location of China National Offshore Oil Corporations Haiyang Shiyou 981 drilling platform is 17 nautical miles (31.5 kilometers) southeast of Zhongjian Island, one of Chinas Xisha Islands, and about 150 nautical miles from the coastline of Vietnam, it falls indisputably within the contiguous zone of Chinas Xisha Islands.In September 1958, Vietnamese Premier Pham Van Dong solemnly stated in a note to Premier Zhou Enlai that Vietnam recognizes and supports the Declaration of the Government of the Peoples Republic of China on Chinas territorial sea that the breadth of the territorial sea of China should be 12 nautical miles and that this provision should apply to all territories of China, including the Xisha Islands and the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea. Pham Van Dongs note shows that the Vietnamese government acknowledged Chinas sovereignty over the Xisha Islands and Nansha Islands. Vietnams claim to sovereignty of the Xisha Islands today is in violation of the principle of estoppel.China issued a statement on May 15, 1996, announcing the geographical coordinates on the base points and straight baselines of the Xisha Islands. Therefore, China can claim an exclusive economic zone that extends 200 nautical miles from these baselines. China has indisputable sovereignty over the Xisha islands, and Chinas drilling operation falls within Chinas sovereign territory, sovereign rights and jurisdiction and thus is fully legal and legitimate. Vietnams dangerous actions against Chinas drilling platform in the contiguous zone of the Xisha Islands must be resolutely opposed.In response to the provocations of the Vietnamese side, China has continued to exercise restraint for the sake of regional peace and stability and it is willing to solve the South China Sea disputes with the countries directly concerned through bilateral coordination and negotiation on the basis of respecting historical facts and international law. This is an important consensus reached between China and relevant countries, and is also in line with the interests and aspirations of the majority of countries and peoples in this region.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesG7 deeply concerned about the East, South China Sea tensionsG7 stops short of endorsing Japans anti-China rhetoricAbes anti-China thinking exposed at G7 summitRisks in capricious VietnamMost Viewed Todays Top NewsSecuring rule of law in HKFerguson a wake-up call for USBeijing cant afford a slip in HKWhither goes the anti-graft driveStudents military drill needs a rethinkForum TrendsShould children be raised by their grandparents?Eight mind-blowing facts about ChinaIs a smartphone stealing away your life?What I like the most about ChinaDo you support the ice bucket challenge?Does second-hand have to mean second-best?Should a husband give his whole salary to his wife?ColumnistsDo expats need pollution hazard pay?Kings dream remains an elusive goalFeatured ContributorsSmoking in a plane is intolerableWhats the best way to protect wildlife?Star BloggersIs it the festival or the size of the cake?
