China Has Offered To Share its Facilities in the South China Sea with the Philippines and Others

June 8, 2015 (EIRNS)–Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Zhao Jianhua on June 5 told a press conference in Manila that China was against any military solution to the territorial dispute in the South China Sea, and is willing to share the facilities it is building on the reefs under its control in the Nansha/Spratly Islands. He said there were no preconditions to talks on the issue, and was not demanding that the Philippines drop its arbitration case against China in the UN tribunal at The Hague.

The Aquino government immediately rejected the offer, while continuing to invite the U.S., and now also the Japanese, to set up military operations in their country, despite Constitutional provisions against any foreign bases. The Philippines and Japan will hold naval exercises in the South China Sea later this month. Aquino also compared China to Nazi Germany in a speech in Japan last week.

Still, the Chinese offer puts Obama’s puppets in Manila in a tough spot, and sane forces within the country are speaking in support of China’s offer.

Even the {Financial Times} today had to admit that the Obama campaign to rally a “coalition of the willing” against China was “stumbling in diplomatic action to establish consensus in Southeast Asia on what to do,” since none of the ASEAN countries other than the Philippines is willing to take sides with the U.S. against China, their largest trading partner and their best hope for development support.
