Interview: Xue Li on the South China Sea

Catergory:Interviews
Region:(Regional Issues)
Issue:(South China Sea Disputes)
(The Diplomat, By By Huang Nan, Zhang Juan, and Shannon Tiezzi) How China will react to the arbitration may also depend on the U.S. reaction. The U.S. has made this arbitration part of its “pivot” to the Asia-Pacific, and how much pressure it exerts on the Philippines will influence the attitude of [new President] Duterte. But China’s reaction for the most part depends on how it interacts with the Philippines. If the Philippines insists on enforcing the decision of the tribunal, China will not concede. But if the Philippines uses this as a starting point to communicate and negotiate with China on how to resolve the disputes, it will be acceptable and desirable to China.
