China has indisputable sovereignty over Nansha Qundao (Nansha Islands) and the adjacent waters, including Xianbin Jiao, with solid historical and legal grounds.

What the Philippines has done infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty, and violated the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC), thus undermining peace and stability in the South China Sea.

China firmly opposes such actions and has urged the Philippine side to immediately cease its infringement. The CCG will continue to carry out rights protection and law enforcement activities in waters under China's jurisdiction in accordance with law.

The Chinese side remains highly vigilant and will continue to take all necessary countermeasures against dangerous and escalating acts of the Philippine side, said Zhang Xiaogang, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense on Friday.

Global South embrace globalization while U.S., Europe turn inwards: UK scholar

2024-07-24 20:26 Last Updated At:20:47

Global South nations including China have welcomed cooperation with open arms whereas the United States and Europe turned their back on the cross-border flows of goods, services, capital, people and data, according to a UK economist.

In an interview with China Global Television Network (CGTN), John Ross, former director of economic policy for the mayor of London, and a senior fellow at the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China, said China has been a clear beneficiary of globalization, and a major engine of international trade and exchanges.

"Since 1978 with reform and opening-up, China has had the fastest sustained growth of any major economy in the whole of human history. Why should it wish to abandon that? This would be the equivalent of sort of taking out a shotgun and shooting yourself in the foot. The development that China has got is now in line also with the majority of the world economy," he said.

In stark contrast to China and other Global South countries, the U.S. and Europe choose to walk away from globalization, according to Ross.

"The problem is that the United States is turning inwards. This will become official, of course, if Trump imposes a 10-percent tariff on all imports into the U.S., which is what he said he'll do [if re-elected]. Whether he will do it is another thing. But whether that's proposed, that will be the official turn of the United States towards protectionism. Europe is [also] doing that. But on the other hand, you have the big Global South economies, not merely China, but India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Turkey, etc. They're not turning in, they're turning outwards,”he said.

Ross concluded that the two paths are distinctively different and China will uphold globalization.

"You've got two trends in the world economy. You've got China plus the Global South, which is turning outwards to globalization. And Europe and the United States, which are turning inward on themselves. So, it's in China's best interest to continue opening up," he said.
