China in North China Sea & its Subsequent Activites

Read on Tumblr : China : North China Sea

China has built a new island in the South China Sea for at least one year on the coral reefs. Its actions are exacerbating the tense geopolitical situation here.

China’s construction of the island’s speed and scale has caused concern in the region’s interest-related countries. In June this year, China announced the opening of the island, the seabed sediment accumulation in the coral reef, will soon be completed. “This statement represents a change in China’s diplomatic tone, indicating that China has completed several reclamation projects as planned and is now entering the island construction phase.” The Center for Strategic and International Studies (Mira Rapp-Hooper), head of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, said the organization is a research institute based in Washington.
At present, China has built some port facilities on the island, military buildings and a runway. These facilities have further strengthened the foundations of China in the Spratly Islands (the Chinese called the Nansha Islands). The Spratly Islands are disputed coral reefs and islands scattered over the South China Sea, with a distance of more than 500 miles (about 800 kilometers) from the Chinese mainland.
These new islands make this part of the ocean can be used for China, and in the past, these areas are relatively out of reach.
Dr. Lap-Hooper said that although the South China Sea has a large amount of fishery resources and may have abundant oil and gas reserves, China’s construction projects are more in order to enhance its territorial claims in the region, rather than the convenience of natural resources Development.
These islands are too small to build large military facilities, but they are enough to help China achieve sustained air and sea patrols.
The United States said it had detected the activities of Chinese artillery vehicles in the area.
These islands also allow China to take more control over fisheries in the region.
In order to lay the foundation for the island, several coral reefs have been completely destroyed.
This process may also cause greater damage to the surrounding marine ecosystems.

Muller-Karger) said that the seabed sediments “may be washed back into the sea by sea water, and the resulting dust groups may choke marine life and may be mixed with heavy metals, oil and other chemicals that are carried from vessels and buildings under construction “Coral reefs throughout the Pradesh Islands are rich in biodiversity, and these projects can pose a threat to them. Mahler Kalberg says these coral reefs may not survive in seawater with large amounts of sediment.
Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Taiwan have expanded their islands in the Spratly Islands, but they are not comparable to China’s size.
For China, the Fiery Cross Reef is currently the most strategically important island.

The island has an upcoming runway that is large enough for China to land any type of aircraft, whether it is a fighter or a large transport aircraft.
But China is not the first country to build an airport in this region, and every other country that claims territorial sovereignty here also has its own airport.
Before the recent start of large-scale construction, China has built some small facilities on its island reefs for many years.
By keeping the front of these buildings alone,China can claim now in the building just before the expansion of facilities, construction and other countries in this region is not much difference.
China continues to build island projects on the Meiji Reef and Zhubi Reef, both of which are large projects. It is not clear what they will build on the island facilities, but the two are large enough straight area, you can build their own airport.
