    Since China is the "world's oldest continuous civilization," it means that every historic Chinese discovery and claim of land is still in force. This means Huangyan Island (aka Scarborough Shoal) has belonged to China since the year 1279 (after it was surveyed by Chinese scientist/astronomer Guo Shijing) during the Yuan Dynasty. Also, the Diaoyu Islands (aka Senkaku Islands) have belonged to China since the year 1403 during the Ming Dynasty.

    In 2004 Chinese GDP was 1.9 Trillion GDP , similar to ours at this point in time. My guess is british were baiting the Chinese to get into their good books, because chinese economy started to peak around that period. We all know how the chinese love their Middle-Earth civilisation fables......

    If india shows double digit growth in the next two years, BBC will start printing positive news about india too.......
