South China Sea: As a punishment for hosting American Speaker Nancy Pelosi, China is doing PLA War Drill around Taiwan, as well as big business on this country with a population of 25 million. Restrictions have also been announced. Now China will not import fruits and fish from Taiwan. Biscuit and pastries coming from Taiwan have also been banned in China. Apart from this, China has banned the export of sand. China has banned dozens of Taiwanese companies. All this was done because China is the largest trade partner of Taiwan. In such a situation, a ban on import-export can cause a big blow to the economy of Taiwan.

If the tension between America and China increases and the situation reaches to war, then this blow to the economy will not stop only to the island country. As a result, the fight will reach the South China Sea, about which there is already tension between the US and China. China has its own interests regarding this maritime area, which it does not want to lose at any cost. If seen, Taiwan is just an excuse, the real purpose of China is to capture the South China Sea. Why does he want to do this? Let’s know?

What is South China Sea

The South China Sea borders 10 countries including China. These include China, Taiwan, Philippines, Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. China has also had a dispute with some of these countries because the dragon has captured almost 90 percent of this ocean. Some time ago China surprised the world, when it started bridging some parts of the ocean. China has built artificial islands there by putting a strong foundation inside the sea. The artificial island in the middle of this sea is China’s most ambitious and most dangerous project, which is also destroying the environment in the sea. America got to know about it for a long time.

China is building a military base here by enlarging the existing islands in this sea so that it can have interference in Southeast Asia. One of the reasons for keeping this area occupied is that the precious treasure of nature is hidden in the womb of the South China Sea. According to an estimate, there is about 11 billion barrels of oil in the South China Sea, which has not been exploited. Not only this, it also has reserves of about 190 trillion cubit feet of natural gas. That is why China’s dominance on the South China Sea has been knocking America and Western countries.

That’s why other countries are interested in South China Sea

The interest of other countries including America increased in this area when China started the exploration of oil in this sea. This was in the 1970s, otherwise no other country had claimed this piece of sea till then. Now everyone has realized how important the South China Sea is economically and strategically. If gunpowder is being sown in the depths of the South China Sea today, several thousand hectares of new land has been prepared by bridging its islands and military bases are being built here, then the connection of all these activities is not only with security interests, But it is also related to economic interests.

Think of it as such that the South China Sea is one of the busiest sea routes in the world. 80 percent of the trade in the world passes through the sea route, while a third of this trade passes through the South China Sea. China is eyeing this business. It is not hidden from anyone that China wants to increase its dominance in Southeast Asia through the South China Sea, but America has challenged China by increasing its presence in the Southeast Asian countries connected with this sea. China wants to drive America out of here at any cost.

America’s love for Taiwan, located on one side of the South China Sea, is also knocking China. After 25 years in Taiwan, China is furious with the entry of American Speaker Nancy Pelosi. After all, it has increased its military activities in the South Chine Sea area.
