China Pointing the Philippines and Japan of Joining Forces

Tensions have reach into a higher degree when China indicted Japan and Philippines for teaming up at a regional debate to assault China over the disputed South China Sea. Japan has boosted security cooperation this year with some of the claimants at loggerheads with China, particularly The Philippines.

China claims most of the part of the South China Sea, through which $5 trillion ship-borne deal passes every year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei also have overlapping claims. China’s production of facilities for “ military purposes” on man-made islands in the South China Sea is raising tensions and risks “ militarization” by the other claimant states.

Recently they made seven artificial islands in the Spartly archipelago on the South China Sea. Chinese renovation and building work on its islands were to progress living conditions and offer facilities like lighthouses and weather stations.
