UN Avoids, Only the US Wants Chinese People’s EnemyPosted: July 13, 2016
SCMP says in its report “United Nations stresses separation from Hague tribunal”, “The United Nations clarified on its Chinese microblog yesterday that the tribunal that ruled against China’s historic claims over the disputed South China Sea was not a UN agency.”
It is apparently a move to separate the UN from the Hague tribunal ruling that has upset Chinese people as the UN understands Chinese people’s strong indignation against the ruling.
Only the US prefers to be regarded by Chinese people as their enemy by pressing China to obey the ruling.
SCMP says in another report titled “US presses China to be responsible power by obeying ruling on South China Sea”, “In unusually strong comments Tuesday after the decision by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, State Department spokesman John Kirby said the world was watching to see whether China would obey the decision over a waterway that hosts about US$5 trillion in trade a year.”
Putting such pressure on China plus sending warships to the South China Sea has given rise to Chinese people’s enmity against the US as strong as the enmity I witnessed among Chinese people after the commencement of the Korean War. This time, however, it’s the enmity among not only the Chinese people on the Chinese mainland but also those in Taiwan.
In another report titled “Tsai Ing-wen tells warship crew to defend Taiwan’s interests as they set off for island in South China Sea”, SCMP says that Taiwan has not only rejected the international tribunal’s ruling, but even sends a warship to defend Taiwan’s interests denied by the ruling.
I said that China shows its readiness to fight in my post “China Rejects Hague Ruling, Ignores US, EU Urges, Shows Readiness to Fight” yesterday. Now it is obvious that not only the People’s Republic of China on Chinese mainland but also the Republic of China in Taiwan is ready to fight to defend China’s sovereignty and interests.
In the report, SCMP says, “Taipei has rejected an international tribunal ruling that questions its legal right to claim waters around Taiping Island in a disputed area of the ocean” and in addition “Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen briefly boarded a naval warship on Wednesday and addressed its crew before it set off to ‘defend Taiwan’s territory’ in the South China Sea’”.
