Trump offers to mediate in South China Sea dispute

13 November 2017, 01:21 | Darnell Patrick

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday he can envision the USA and North Korea agreeing to hold talks at some point as a precursor to formal negotiations.

"We have to be friends, the other hotheads would like us to confront China and the rest of the world on so many issues", Duterte said at a ceremony on the eve of a summit of East and Southeast Asian nations in the Philippine capital.

US President Donald Trump told his Vietnamese counterpart yesterday he is ready to help resolve the dispute in the resource-rich South China Sea, which Beijing claims most of.

The two lawmakers incurred Duterte's ire when they criticised US President Donald Trump for inviting the Philippine leader to visit the US as well as discuss with him during his visit to Manila of the human rights situation arising from the government's brutal war on illegal drugs. "One fight there, another here", he said this week, in Vietnam ahead of the recent Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting. He added that he is "a very good mediator and arbitrator".

"I believe in our intel agencies", he said, alongside Vietnam President Tran Dai Quang. ASEAN meets with China and the US early in the week ahead of a joint meeting with the leaders of nations including the US, China, Japan, Australia, India and Russian Federation.

"I just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem", Trump said, not mentioning the thousands killed and worldwide scorn.

"The two sides returned to the track of appropriately handling the South China Sea issue through dialogue and consultation, thus removing the stumbling block that has held back our bilateral relations for several years", Li said.

Briefing reporters in Beijing during the China leg of Trump's Asia tour, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US view on the maritime dispute hadn't changed - that "claimants should stop construction and militarization" of disputed islands.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines said Trump arrived in Manila at 5:45 p.m.

"And although I would suppose it would be safe to assume that the discussion on West Philippine Sea will take place because in the remark of the US President, he also said that the interest of the United States is to maintain freedom of navigation "in crucial waterways", Roque said.

Tensions in the contested waters have ratcheted up since 2014 as China has turned sandbars into islands, equipping them with airfields, ports and weapons systems and warned USA warships and aircraft to stay away from them. "The South China Sea, Taiwan, the East China Sea". The country claims a huge swathe of the South China Sea.
