As informs us newspaper, Washington continues to insist on the right of free navigation anywhere in the marine space, while it does not contradict the principles of international Maritime law.
But during the meeting, Chinese and U.S. military, it became clear that the United States can not prevent China to implement its projects in the South China sea. "The Americans patrolling the 12-mile zone - step, specifically aimed at Chinese activities in the South China sea, but the Pentagon no longer criticizes Beijing for these actions. Neither Gary Harris nor Carter Ashton in public did not raise the question of the legitimacy of the construction of the Islands, which means that the US has already realized its own inability to force China to stop the construction of artificial Islands", - said the publication, explaining the meeting of defense Ministers 2-countries.
