    “Thus, it is preferable and crucial that the Phnom Penh meetings keep to their agenda and leave South China Sea issues to China and the specific Asean countries concerned,”

    If this is what the greedy Chinese bullies want, then we shouldn’t give it to them. We should sign an agreement recognizing the economic zones of the regions nations specifically stating every nation’s territory including China’s using the Law of the Sea Treaty they have all signed as a basis. Then if China continues its belligerence, sanctions and military force can be brought to bear by all against China.
