China says it will ignore South China Sea lawsuit decision

China said Saturday that it will ignore the decision of an international arbitration panel in the Philippines’ lawsuit against Beijing’s sweeping territorial claims in the South China Sea.

“To put it simply, the arbitration case actually has gone beyond the jurisdiction” of a U.N. arbitration panel, said Rear Adm. Guan Youfei, director of the foreign affairs office of China’s National Defense Ministry.

The Philippines has filed a case in the United Nations under the U.N. Convention on Law of the Sea, questioning China’s territorial claim in the South China Sea. An arbitration panel is expected to rule on the case soon. The Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled last year that it has jurisdiction over the case despiteChina’s rejection.

“Because the territorial and sovereignty disputes have not been subjected to the arbitration, we think the arbitration is illegal,” Guan told reporters on the sidelines of an international security conference here. “Therefore, we do not participate in it nor accept it.”

    So, China will do whatever it damn well pleases. So much for the UN. That is just the way we ought to treat it. And pray BO heads it up when he leaves office. Then we can boot him and whole organization to the middle east. And Trump can follow up with him there on all the done in the dark illegal things he finds when he takes office. Hillary, Sharpton, etc. had all better follow BO to his new place of living. I think it will be quite uncomfortable for the NWO and BO chronies in the US soon.

    China understands one thing: power. Too bad our clueless, American hating “president” has so weakened our military power that we are unable to put a couple of carrier task groups into the South China Sea. A tip of the hat to “ears”.
