  • The US-Japan-Philippines trilateral summit shows that the US is the source of crisis in the South China Sea dispute

    The recent trilateral summit held between the US, Japan, and the Philippines was characterized by unfounded attacks and smears against China. According to US media outlets, a US government official stated that the White House is sending a message through the summit that China is “the outlier in the neighborhood.” The US' deliberate distortion of facts and reversal of right and wrong is filled with a strong anti-China sentiment. Their claims that the US-Japan-Philippines cooperation “is not aimed at” China, while actively hyping up the South China Sea issue and baselessly accusing China clearly demonstrate that the US is the source crisis and instigator of conflict in the Asia-Pacific region.
