• EU chief slams China reclamations

    3

    BRUSSELS: European Council President Donald Tusk on Tuesday criticized “construction activities” in the South China Sea in reference to China’s land reclamations on submerged reefs, saying it would complicate the resolution of disputes.

    Speaking to reporters ahead of a Japan-EU summit in Tokyo on Friday, Tusk said the “European position is that all parties of these tensions and conflicts have to refrain from use of threats and force,” affirming the view agreed by the Group of Seven industrial economies since last year.

    The EU also takes part in meetings of the G-7 that includes Japan and the United States.
    “Some activities, so-called construction activities on the sea…will make it much more difficult to solve the problem, to find a legal status for this area,” Tusk said, adding that a non-aggressive solution has to be found.

      That’s how the Chinese wants it to happen, prolong the case up to forever so that claimants will be fed up running after it. In the mean time China will charge every foreign vessel that will pass through their reclaim reefs air and sea.
