China and Vietnam clash over maritime interests

China and Vietnam clash over maritime interestsTensions are again running high between Chinese and Vietnamese authorities, after a run-in between ships in disputed waters in the South China Sea.  Three Chinese patrol boats intentionally disrupted the proceedings of a Vietnamese oil exploration ship, and now both parties are crying foul.  Despite similar Communist histories and governments, China and Vietnam have been engaged over maritime rights for several decades, along with Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Brunei.

China claims the aggressive actions of its ships were “completely justified” while Vietnam has pledged to use its Navy to protect its maritime interests.  The South China Sea holds many important deep-water shipping routes, and is thought to hold large amounts of oil and gas reserves.  It is an important asset to both countries and hopefully their war of words will not come to fruition.
