The US Senate on July 10 adopted a resolution coded S.RES.412 on the East Sea, requesting China to return immediately to the status quo as it existed before May 1, 2014.
The resolution reaffirms “the strong support of the United States Government for freedom of navigation and other internationally lawful uses of sea and airspace in the Asia-Pacific region, and for the peaceful diplomatic resolution of outstanding territorial and maritime claims and disputes”.
It states that although the US is not a claimant party in the East Sea but it is a longstanding Asia-Pacific power and has a clear interest in encouraging and supporting the nations of the region to work collaboratively and diplomatically to resolve disputes and is firmly opposed to coercion, intimidation, threats, or the use of force.
It emphasises the vital importance of the increasing frequency and assertiveness of patrols and competing regulations over disputed territory and maritime areas and airspace in the East Sea (South China Sea ) and the East China Sea are raising tensions and increasing the risk of confrontation.
Resolution S.RES.412 also lists a series of China ‘s actions that violated international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea ( UNCLOS ). On May 1, 2014, the People’s Republic of China ‘s state-owned energy company,CNOOC , placed its deepwater semi-submersible drilling rig Haiyang Shiyou -981, accompanied by over 25 Chinese ships, in Block 143, 120 nautical miles off Vietnam ‘s coastline.
