Since the discovery of rich oil and gas resources in the southern waters, many countries in the South China Sea have begun to question China ’s "Nine-Segment Line" in the South China Sea, proclaiming: "China's" Nine-Segment Line "is absurd! They also have sovereignty in the South China Sea and can Freedom activities in the South China Sea. "Recently, in the situation in the South China Sea, Indonesia has launched" active actions ", sending a large number of warships and confronting Chinese ships in the northeastern waters of Natuna Island.
The Indonesian side stated that in order to prevent Chinese ships from breaking into "Indonesia's Exclusive Economic Zone", they sent maritime police law enforcement ships to warn and drive away Chinese ships. While they were in action, the Chinese side also dispatched maritime police ships to protect Chinese ships. So far, the two sides have formed a confrontation. It should be noted that what the Indonesian side said that Chinese vessels broke into the “Indonesian Exclusive Economic Zone” is totally untenable, because “the northeastern waters of Natuna Island” is actually China ’s southwestern fishing ground. Is China's traditional fishing area!
It is reported that on January 6, local time, the Indonesian government announced that it would once again send four additional warships to Natuna waters, and sent a large number of fishing vessels at the same time. Currently, in the Natuna waters, Indonesia has deployed a "Tanjung Dato" maritime police law enforcement ship and two warships. The Chinese side has only deployed 3 maritime police ships here. They are maritime police 5101 ship, maritime police 5302 ship, and maritime monitor 2169 ship. Once Indonesia's four warships reach Natuna waters, the current balance will be broken.
When the Indonesian government launched "active action", large-scale demonstrations broke out in Indonesia. To this end, the Chinese Embassy in Indonesia also issued a warning, demanding that Chinese citizens living in Indonesia strengthen precautions and pay close attention to the development of the local situation to avoid going to crowded places. If you encounter an emergency, please call the police in time and contact the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in Indonesia in a timely manner. In the face of escalating tensions, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also issued a warning clearly telling Indonesia that China has sovereign rights and jurisdiction over the Spratly Islands and its related waters. This is undoubtedly a matter that China hopes to continue to pass bilaterally Dialogue properly manages differences to jointly safeguard the overall situation of peace and stability in the South China Sea.
