SOUTH CHINA SEA TERRITORIAL DISPUTE FACTS AND UPDATE

But China is now modernising its navy in South China Sea, fortifying its fleet with nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers and long range missiles. It’s also attempting to force the Philippines and Vietnam in South China Sea off disputed reefs and spending billions building new island bases more than a thousand kilometres from its own shores.
