China should prepare for military confrontation in the South China Sea, an influential state-run paper said yesterday (4 July). This comes a week before an international court in The Hague is due to give its decision on the territorial dispute between China and the Philippines on 12 July.
According to the Global Times paper, which is published by the ruling Communist Party’s official People’s Daily, the tribunal’s talks will pose a threat to China’s sovereignty and further escalate the South China Sea dispute. It also noted that the territorial clash has already been complicated by US intervention and China should be prepared to defend its position.
