    After warning India, China asks Russia to stay away from South China Sea

    BEIJING: India has now got company of another country, Russia, in being the target of Chinese ire over the South China Sea controversy. China on Tuesday hit out against the Russian decision to explore for oil in sea areas that Beijing claims to be its own.

    China has been vehemently opposed to ONGC Videsh Limited exploring for oil in the sea area along with a Vietnamese company. A Russian company has now joined the exploration work in the area.

    Talking to reporters on Tuesday, foreign ministry Liu Weimin expressed the hope that foreign companies should respect and support the efforts of countries in South China Sea region to settle their disputes instead of meddling in the affair.

    He also advised other countries in the region to meet each other half way with China, and avoid getting countries outside the region involved in the sea dispute.

    Asserting that China has indisputable sovereignty over the Nansha Islands and their adjacent waters, Liu said China was committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes through direct negotiation and friendly consultation. The basis of negotiations would be respect for historical facts and international law, he said.

    They did not actually asked Russia to 'stay away'. The spokesperson said that outside countries should avoid getting involved in the SCS dispute.

    This is good sign that PRC now at least identifies the SCS territory claim being in dispute compared to their earlier stand that SCS belongs to China.

    Russia is supplying modern arms to Vietnam

    It is only natural that Russians get these oil and Gas blocks

    What is better that if Russia can show the middle finger to the Chinese
    then the Chinese claims and demands that SCS is their property just fall flat

    Now even the yanks will roll out the goodies for all SCS nations

    This bully China will be definitely tamed

    We have to get ourselves port facilities at Cam Ranh Bay, then we can start having some control around the SCS and give the PLAN their very own string of pearls.

    The final brick is still not in place. One major power flip-flop is still pending. I am wondering which country it would be. No wonder predicting future is not easy :namaste:

    Russia , India are the old friends of Vietnam . With Russia, from the 80' of last century it have already a Joint Venture in oil exploitation and this Corporation is still now make an important annual profit for both countries. Why not to extend this mutual cooperation in this time if it entirely conform with international law (see map) . Perhaps we can see more some other new Joint Venture in this region !
