China discreetly launches initiative to combat 'illegal activities in key areas' in South China Sea

Washington, July 05: Without competing a lot of consideration of South-East Asian nations, China has prudently started an oceanic law authorization activity pointed toward upgrading marine ecological security and fighting "criminal operations in key zones", including seaward oil investigation just as delivery and related tasks. 

The US-based Diplomat magazine, in its report, said that China's Ministry of Natural Resources, Ministry of Ecology and Environment, Ministry of Transport and China Coast Guard, in a joint explanation delivered on April 1, had declared the beginning of an eight-month-long "Bihai 2020" (or "Blue Sea 2020") activity. 

As per the joint assertion, which is accessible just in Chinese, the Bihai 2020 activity, which is specified to last from April 1 to November 30, focusses on battling criminal operations in eight key regions - marine designing development, seaward oil investigation, unloading of marine waste, delivery and related tasks, ocean sand mining and transportation, marine secured zone, land-based contamination and marine natural climate. 

The media revealed that the apparently tiresome and unremarkable Bihai 2020 declaration was eclipsed by the rising strains in the South China Sea lately. Up until this point, none of the 10 ASEAN part states has reacted to the activity, at any rate openly. In any case, the scholastic discussion on China's potential inspirations and the ramifications of the activity is likewise remarkably deficient. 

By all accounts, the activity gives off an impression of being exclusively pointed toward improving marine ecological insurance. Be that as it may, as verified in the joint articulation, law implementation exercises directed under the activity would include waterfront and ocean watches, just as distant observing capacities. 

"This presents a stressing probability that the activity could be utilized by Beijing up 'til now another defense for the expanded presence of Chinese law authorization vessels in the contested South China Sea," the report said. 

While the specific geological extent of the Bihai 2020 activity stays questionable as of now, the joint assertion gives no sign whether the law requirement exercises would be done distinctly inside China's regional waters or have a more extensive application in the contested South China Sea. 

"South-East Asian nations should put more consideration on the Bihai 2020 activity before it transforms into another wellspring of contention," the report cautioned. (ANI)
