Amb.He Yafei:

I believe South China sea will be a testing ground for the future of the US China geopolitical relationships.Will it be a rivalry, strategic rivalry, or competition within a rule based framework, or corporation.It will be a test since the US brought South China sea into the great power competitions to teach rivalry from 2010 onwards. It is uncertain if efforts by China and ASEAN countries to build a rule based framework in South China sea through code of conduct, renegotiations. US in this case, has played a role of peace breaker rather than a peace builder. So we do hope first step, as for US to reverse its role.Obviously, peace in South China sea serves the best interests of China, US and ASEAN countries.



Dr. Michael Swaine:

Ambassador he put forth a very a very broad and comprehensive agenda of things that could be implemented to try to reduce the likelihood of tension and conflict in the South China sea.And I endorse just about everything that he said in that regard.But I think China, for its part, needs to do several things that hasn't done either. I think it needs to reaffirm unambiguously that it will never employ force to remove other claimants from disputed islands of Greece unless others were to attack it first. And that it is committed the finding a peaceful, mutually acceptable solution to its disputes.China also needs to stop harassing its neighbors in waters where China has no nearby territorial sea or exclusive economic zone claims, and yet falls within the nine dash line. first.And that it is committed the finding a peaceful, mutually acceptable solution to its disputes.China also needs to stop harassing its neighbors in waters where China has no nearby territorial sea or exclusive economic zone claims, and yet falls within the nine dash line.
