    "...Japanese foreign minister Koichiro Gemba instructed Japan's ambassador to China Uichiro Niwa to properly explain Japan's stance to China over the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, following recent intrusions by Chinese vessels into Japanese waters in the area."Kyodo news agency.July 16,2012.TOI.

    "The Philippine government has asked China to explain how one of its naval vessels ran aground within what Manila says are its territorial waters." July 14,2012 .BBC

    In March 2010, a Chinese official told White House officials that the South China Sea was part of China’s “core interest” of sovereignty, similar to Tibet and Taiwan. US and India also object to China’s telling foreign oil companies not to work with Vietnam on developing oil fields in the South China Sea.NyYTimes Sept.27,2010

    Liu Weimin, a PRC Foreign Ministry spokesman, urged Vietnam and the Philippines on Monday to improve their relations with China by softening their stances in territorial disputes in the South China Sea.July 3,2012 .NY Times.

    Every body is all too familiar with Sino-Indian border dispute to merit any mention.

    No marks for guessing which country was embroiled in numerous border disputes in 1930s.Now we should know what to expect next and prepare for.

    Chinese have helped to form an anti chinese alliance thru these disputes. That is why the
    chinese are hesitating to enforce their false claims even with much smaller countries.
