Both United States Vice Present Joe Biden and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe raised the pressure on China on Saturday as they insisted that China must abide by the same international rules as everyone else after a UN-backed tribunal ruled against Beijing's claims in the South China Sea. " We expect China to play by the same rules as everyone else,'Biden told the Sydney Morning Herald ahead of his arrival Canberra, referring to the international rules-based system that governs claims to maritime territory. At a retreat outside the Mongolian Capital, Abe told the assembled leaders that the rule of law was " a universal principle that the international community must firmly maintain," according to Japan's Jiji press.
