Consequences for China after militarisation in pacific

СМИ Китай тайно перебросил ракетные комплексы на спорные острова

On Wednesday, US news network CNBC reported that China had installed the missile systems on three outposts in the South China Sea.

Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim on Thursday emphasized the importance of American ship visitations in the Southeast Asian (SEA) region, following concerns about continuous militarization in the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea). "There will be near-term and long-term consequences".

According to U.S. report, the missiles have been shifted to Fiery Cross Reef, Subi Reef and Mischief Reef within the past 30 days.

Earlier, the USA lodged a formal complaint with Beijing after Chinese nationals pointed lasers at United States military aircraft near a base in Djibouti in a number of incidents in recent weeks. This island is a Spratly island claimed by several countries like Vietnam and Taiwan.

Nadal beats Greece's Tsitsipas in Barcelona Open final
Nadal has now won 46 consecutive sets on clay, and speaking after the victory, it seems each title is sweeter than the last. After the win, Nadal dived into a pool at the venue along with some of the tournament's ball boys and ball girls.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying, regarding the militarisation said in a press briefing, "China's peaceful construction in the Spratly archipelago, including the deployment of necessary national defence facilities, is aimed at protecting China's sovereignty and security".

Neighbours such as the Philippines have disputed China's claim to the South China Sea. "We hope that the relevant party could view this matter in an objective and calm way".

In addition to land-reclamation efforts on reefs it controls and building civilian facilities there, China also has air bases, radar and communications systems, naval facilities and defensive weaponry in place including landing strips able to accommodate military planes.

The TV channel notes that the installed systems can hit the court at a distance of 295 nautical miles (546 km) and air targets at a distance of 160 nautical miles (296 km).

"China's activities in the South China Sea is to uphold our sovereignty and territorial integrity".

The US Navy itself frequently sends warships and aircraft carriers to patrol the area.

"The only thing lacking are the deployed forces", he said.
