  • Chinese warships move into South China Sea. South China Sea is a highly contested area which is claimed by China and various ASEAN countries such as Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, etc. This is because this area has enormous amounts of oil, and the area is also a strategic point for sea transport. Recently, the Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled against China to hold that Chinese claims are against International Law. But, China said that the ruling has no authority and it abides by its claim of ‘Nine-dash’ line which it drew covering most of the Sea.
