The Chinese newspaper Global Times warned of a possible conflict between China and the US

China should prepare for a military confrontation in the South China Sea, Reuters reported with reference to the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party’s Global Times. The publication has made this statement a week before the International Court of Justice decision in the dispute between China and the Philippines on the claims on the territory in the South China Sea.

The publication reports that the dispute between China and the Philippines has been complicated by the intervention of the United States and China now faces the probability of a further escalation of the conflict due to the threat posed by the Court to its sovereignty. “Washington has deployed two aircraft carrier groups around the South China Sea: he just flexing its muscles and strength as the largest center in the region, he expects China’s obedience”, - said the Global Times, adding that China should accelerate the development of its military threat deterrence capabilities. “Despite the fact that China can not keep up with the US military in the near future, it should be able to give a rebuff to the US, if they take part in the conflict in the South China Sea,” - says Global Times. Nevertheless, it notes that China hopes for a peaceful settlement through negotiations.
