US to china: Clarify your Boundary
MetadataShow full item record
The United States has called on China to clarify or adjust its controversial nine-dash boundary line in the South China Sea to conform to international law and insisted all maritime claims be derived from land features, Navy Admiral Samuel Locklear said. Testifying before a House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday, the head of the US Pacific Command said China’s attempts to unilaterally enforce its ambiguous sea claims have created uncertainty in the region. “The international community would welcome China to clarify or adjust its nine-dash line claim and bring it into accordance with the international law of the sea, as reflected in the Law of the Sea Convention,” he said.
