China building large port in disputed South China Sea islands - UPI.com
UPI reports: "China may be building a large port in the disputed Paracel Islands in
the South China Sea, according to Taiwan's Central News Agency.
The new construction could be taking place as China continues to
militarize other areas of the South China Sea, including the disputed
Spratly Islands, where Beijing has built military runways and possibly
China confirmed in 2016 it stationed troops on the Paracels, a group of
islands also claimed by Taiwan and Vietnam."
Comment: So, according to this report, the Paracel Islands are claimed by Taiwan? I think the writer does us a disservice by not reminding us that China considers Taiwan a province of China, so the idea that they belong to Taiwan is a bit absurd, from the Chinese perspective.
