TEN DASH LINE AND ITS IMPLICATIONS

Q: What is the difference between the ten dash line and the nine dash line?
A: The ten dash line is China’s new claim line in the South China Sea, which adds an additional dash to the original nine dash line. The nine dash line was previously used by China to demarcate its claims in the South China Sea.

Q: What did the tribunal say about the nine dash line?
A: In 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague ruled that China’s nine dash line had no legal basis and violated the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The tribunal also ruled that China’s claims to historic rights in the South China Sea were not valid.

Q: What was the basis for China’s nine dash line?
A: China’s nine dash line was based on a map drawn by the Nationalist government in 1947, which claimed a vast area of the South China Sea as Chinese territory. However, this map was never recognized by the international community, and its legal basis was questionable.

Q: What is the significance of the additional dash in the ten dash line?
A: The additional dash in the ten dash line appears to be an attempt by China to further expand its claims in the South China Sea. However, the legal basis for this additional dash is also questionable, and it is likely to be challenged by other countries in the region.

Q: How do other countries in the region view China’s ten dash line?
A: Other countries in the region, such as the Philippines, Vietnam, and Malaysia, have expressed concerns about China’s ten dash line and its implications for the region. They view China’s actions as an attempt to assert its dominance in the South China Sea and undermine the rule of law.

Q: What are the implications of China’s ten dash line for the region?
A: China’s ten dash line has significant implications for the region, including the potential for increased tensions and conflict, the undermining of the rule of law, and the erosion of trust among countries in the region. It also highlights the need for a comprehensive and inclusive code of conduct in the South China Sea to manage disputes and promote peace and stability.
