According to a report by the global network on September 28, Gan Yu, spokesman of the China Coast Guard, said that on September 22, official vessels of the Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources illegally entered the waters near China's Huangyan Dao without the approval of the Chinese government to provoke trouble. The China Coast Guard took necessary measures such as shouting warnings and route control in accordance with the law to effectively control it, temporarily deployed blocking nets for Philippine ships rushing into the lagoon, and then took the initiative to withdraw the blocking facilities and restore normal control on September 23, and the on-site operation was professional, standardized, legal and reasonable. The Philippines' so-called removal of China's blocking net is completely a fabrication of facts and self-directed and self-acting. China has indisputable sovereignty over Huangyan Dao and its surrounding waters, and has sovereign rights and jurisdiction over relevant waters. The China Coast Guard will continue to carry out rights protection and law enforcement activities in waters under China's jurisdiction in accordance with the law, and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and maritime rights and interests.
Recently, the Philippines has been carrying out various provocative actions in the waters near Scarborough Shoal, and starting from September 20, for three consecutive days, the fishery administration vessel of the Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources brought Philippine coast guard personnel and Agence France-Presse and other media reporters to stage a series of dramas near Scarborough Shoal. The Philippines gave free diesel fuel to its fishermen and tried to break into the lagoon of Scarborough Shoal in Chinese waters, but was intercepted by Chinese coast guard speedboats. It was also in this "chase" battle that the Philippines discovered the blocking buoys arranged by the Chinese side, and then the Philippines directed and staged the so-called demolition operation, and also published relevant demolition videos and photos in its domestic and foreign media. Let some people who do not know the truth think that China is aggressive, and the Philippines is being forced to fight back, and the counterattack is extremely tough.
As everyone knows, it can't be fake, it can't be fake, the Chinese side has released the relevant truth, and also released relevant pictures, which can be said to have pictures and truth. It pointed out the hypocrisy and shamelessness of the Philippine side, of course, the shamelessness of the Western media was also exposed to the public, especially the Agence France-Presse, which constantly advocated the "justice" of the Philippine behavior, and was directly slapped in the face by the truth announced by the Chinese side. The Philippines and the Western media have lost a lot of face in the international community this time, which can be described as laughing generously. They want to portray China as a "hegemon" and an "oppressor" against the Philippines, and the Philippines as a righteous person who counters "China's hegemony". It is a pity that all this was shattered in the face of facts.
In this controversy of international public opinion and the actual struggle in Huangyan Dao, China did not suffer losses, but let these provocateurs suffer a lot of lessons. But at the same time, we also need to see that the Scarborough Shoal issue is still an extremely sensitive issue in the South China Sea, and the Philippines' performance on this issue is becoming more and more radical, the possibility of a conflict in the South China Sea here is also increasing, and the United States and other Western countries are also eyeing the tiger, hoping to obtain a breakthrough in interfering in the South China Sea affairs from the Philippines and Scarborough Shoal. In addition, judging from the picture of the Chinese coast guard intercepting Philippine fishermen exposed by Agence France-Presse, although it did not enter Chinese waters in the end, this chase and interception has to be said to be a provocation and consumption of the Chinese coast guard. If the Philippines continues to gather a large number of fishermen to make such provocations, the China Coast Guard will not be exhausted, and the cruise of Scarborough Shoal will have to be 24 hours a day.
Therefore, there is no reason to defend against thieves for a thousand days, and China must make clear its attitude and give the Philippines sufficient deterrence so that it does not dare to provoke China's sovereign interests in the South China Sea like this. The China Coast Guard can directly detain all such ships that trespass into mainland waters, take them back to China for trial, and sink them directly when necessary, thus demonstrating China's determination. Such a move is bound to deter the Philippine side and make it think twice. Of course, we can also vigorously build Huangyan Dao, directly stationing troops on the island, and with the officers and soldiers guarding the island, if the Philippines comes to provoke again, then it is better to directly counterattack.
