"By doing so, the Philippines breached its repeatedly affirmed consensus with China and its undertakings in the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea."The Chinese government released a position paper in December to present Chinas stance on the South China Sea and the legal grounds supporting it.Zhang Xinjun, an associate professor specializing in international law at Tsinghua Universitys law school, said that even though the US has been playing with words to appear to keep its promise of neutrality with regard to the competing claims in the area, China clearly doesnt buy it.Moreover, the Philippines avoided directly questioning Chinas sovereignty over the South China Sea in its plea to the UN tribunal, Zhang said."From Chinas perspective, the essence of the arbitration is surely related to sovereignty. There is no way to separate the other disputes from the subject of sovereignty," Zhang said."The other conflict here is that the US has - rather than being a shadow - almost jumped out to the front of the stage in this case."Interestingly, we can see that the Philippines team of lawyers, which included top lawyers and international law scholars from Washington, have similar pursuits like the US governments stand in this area. That probably is why Mr Lu Kang called them an arbitrator outside the tribunal," Zhang said.
