South China Sea Today (7/26/2019) – Chinese Navy Ships in SCS breaching maritime norms

July 27, 2019



[Applause] the activities and behavior of Chinese military and paramilitary ships in the South China Sea have not been transparent and are not consistent with maritime norms the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard has admitted as he encouraged Coast Guard's in the region to unite and make a push back against Beijing's inappropriate demeanor I think we are seeing behaviors out of the Chinese Coast Guard out of the maritime militia that are not consistent with the rules-based order said Admiral Carl Leo Schultz during a telephonic interview with asia-pacific journalists on Tuesday I think the Coast Guard's voice the US Navy voice alleged partners regional partners neighbors I think there needs to be an international push back to say you know we reject the types of behaviors the antagonistic aggressive behaviors that are not consistent with the rules-based order Shultz added who spoke from Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands the US Coast Guard commandant like other officials in the indo-pacific noted the bloated presence of Chinese ships in the South China Sea including from Beijing's maritime militia but whose activities have not been consistent with or do not observe proper maritime decorum the Chinese Coast Guard is grossly manifested increased its number of ships there's the People's Liberation Army Navy Central Government Navy there's the Chinese Coast Guard used to be under civilian authority it is now through the people's military police a direct report to the CCP government you look at the maritime militia he said Schultze say the US Coast Guard will be more active in the region's waters in support of the activities of the US military's Indo Pacific commander while showcasing good behavior and maritime governance at supports to rules-based order and free and open access to the sea lines of communication it will also support partner countries in upholding and asserting their sovereignty while protecting US interests the US Coast Guard commander noted that many countries in the asia-pacific do not have the full capacity and capability to guard their sovereign waters making them vulnerable to narcotics trafficking human smuggling illegal and regulated and unreported fishing piracy and terrorist activities in the face of coercive and antagonistic behavior the United States Coast Guard offers transparent engagements in partnership he said well our specialized capabilities and expansive international relationships enable us to build partner nation capacity and model the rules-based values and behaviors that we want to see in the region through engagement partnership and presence we are a maritime bridge between the Department of Defense's lethality and the State Department's diplomacy Schulz said Schulz emphasized their aim was to become a model for maritime governance what we think we bring is appropriate behavior following international protocol and following a free and opened rule-based mindset and we're hoping the Coast Guard presence here will reinforce that as important the national US interest and really how the international norms should be established and reinforced he said

    On June 9, a ship from the Chinese maritime militia said to be masquerading as a fishing vessel struck a Filipino fishing vessel while it was anchored in the Recto Bank in the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone. The Chinese ship left the Filipino crewmen to the mercy of the sea before they were rescued by a Vietnamese fishing boat.

    China will dominate South China Sea. We have carriers and powerful missile carrier destroyer. We will make USA a example to the world when USA ships sink in the ocean. Power to China.
