CHINA SAYS IT HAS DISPATCHED A SHIP TO SOUTH CHINA SEA TO REINFORCE MARITIME CLAIM

Fox News on December 28, 2012, published an AP report on China saying it has dispatched a ship to the disputed South China Sea, in an apparent effort to reinforce its claim to the waters. Excerpts below:

The official Xinhua News Agency says patrol vessel Haixun 21, equipped with a helipad, departed the southern city of Haikou for the South China Sea.

China believes most of the South China Sea is its own, overlapping with claims of Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Taiwan in parts of the gas- and oil-rich region.

The Philippines says it objects to Chinese patrols of Philippine maritime territory.
