New official China map includes contested islands

By

MANILA, Philippines—China has published a new official map that includes islands in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) as part of sovereign Chinese territory, according to a report by the state-run Xinhua news agency.

China’s National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (NASMG), which announced the release of the map on Friday, described the new official map as featuring “more than 130 islands and islets in the South China Sea, most of which have not been featured on previous maps of China,” the Xinhua report said.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said it would ask the Philippine Embassy in Beijing to confirm the report.

“We will ask our embassy in Beijing to verify the reported official map of China and the extent of its coverage in the South China Sea before making our comment on it,” said Assistant Secretary Raul Hernandez, the DFA spokesperson.

The Philippines is also known to be drafting its own map officially renaming the South China Sea the West Philippine Sea and including within its  exclusive economic zone the islands in the disputed waters that it claims as part of Philippine territory—the Kalayaan island group in the disputed Spratlys chain and the Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal.

China’s new vertical format map was published by China’s Sinomaps Press and copies are expected to be made available to the Chinese public by the end of the month, Xinhua said.

“The maps will be very significant in enhancing the Chinese people’s awareness of national territory, safeguarding China’s marine rights and interests, and manifesting China’s political diplomatic stance,” Sinomaps chief editor Xu Gencai was quoted as saying in the Xinhua report.

Zhou Beiyan, editor of the new Chinese maps, said the old official maps featured only the Spratlys (called Nansha by China), Paracels (Xisha) and Macclesfield Bank (Zhongsha) in the disputed waters.

By comparison, the new vertical map makes clear the delineations of the South China Sea islands and “demonstrates their geographic relations to surrounding island countries as well as surrounding islands and islets.”

The map’s bottom-left corner features an illustration of the Diaoyu, or Senkaku, Islands territories being claimed by China and Japan, according to the Xinhua report.

China claims ownership of almost all of the resource-rich territories in the South China Sea, conflicting with the partial claims of the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and Taiwan.

Last year, China issued new chip-embedded passports bearing a Chinese map that includes within China’s sovereign domain the disputed West Philippine Sea territories.

Protesting this “excessive declaration” of Chinese territory, the Philippines refused to stamp visas on the Chinese e-passports, issuing the visas on separate forms for the Chinese passport holders.

      • bugoybanggers

        Wag mo ng isalaksak ang US sa kaguluhan ng PILIPINAS laban sa CHINA. Puro ka US! Alam mo namang ipinahayag na ng US ang kanilang pagiging NEUTRAL sa usaping ito at bakit ayaw ng US makisawsaw sa ganyan kasi lalong babagsak ang kanilang ekonomiya at wala sila interest sa SOUTH CHINA SEA. Ano ba ang paki ng US sa Pilipinas, bakit tayo ba ang No.1 Supplier ng LANGIS sa US? Ano ang export natin sa kanila na napakaHALAGA! Yung mga taong PILIPINO na gustong lumuhod at umiyak sa harap ng kano ay pwede ng UMALIS ng Pinas.. pumila na kayo sa US Embassy.. mag pababoy kayo doon para matauhan kayo! Ganyan kamahal ng US ang mga PILIPINO… pahihirapan kumuha ng VISA.. ally nga!

        There goes your bellicose ramblings in ALL CAPS again. Instead of your usual chest stomping highly charged diatribes, lets see if you are willing to put to action or is it just all talk and talk and talk like your DFA! 

        How about if you set an example, sign up and volunteer for service with the PHL military. Give up your cushy private job and willingly sacrifice for your ideals. Let us see if you yourself is a coward or not. Show us you are not all AIR, chanting and howling but you really meant what your always babbling all the time. 

        Then and then will we know the truth about you. And in the process, the truth may finally set you free.      

      • junsepara

      • Kaizensigma

        Chanting, talking and clamoring for war is very easy if you are doing these from the comfort of cushy armchairs and typing on keyboards into faceless forums. But when push comes to shove, I bet most of these same bloggers will be the first to hide, bribe and do whatever means to escape being drafted into military service for actual combat tour of duties.  

      • junsepara

        what about you, you are typing and blogging too, you mean you are going to hide too? douchebag, he,he,he,he, go back to where you came from chink,!!! utak biya pa rin, he,he,he,

      • Kaizensigma

        @ Junsepara – Yes, I am blogging and participating in this free forum but the difference is I do not use foul, vulgar words, nor have I used racial epithet and put myself in the low class uneducated level , like you, who is very comfy with words that reflect his manner of upbringing. Your action and your words speak much about your personality and lack of character. Needless to say, You are an affront to your own kind especially when your vulgarity is for all to see. Its a waste of time debating or arguing with someone who can only manage in babbling vulgarity.

      • kanoy

         ????QUOTE>>put myself in the low class uneducated level????? Hummm can’t help but notice that you have been blogging all afternoon its 3pm wouldn’t someone with a good education and on the middle to upper class be employed and working, not blogging, all day?

      • junsepara

      • kanoy

         LOL>>QUOTE JUNS>>where are this vulgar words?? Here>”CHINKS”

        that’s derogatory,,,its like calling a black man a njgger, a white man a honkey  a filipino a flip

      • Kaizensigma

        Racial bigots like you are not isolated to the PHL. Even in the states the ugly head of racial bigotry against minorities including Pinoys are very much alive. How does it feel to be on the other end of the stick ? your liberal use of a common racial epithets against chinese and anyone looking like asian is derogatory, repugnant and a clear indication of your character and educational attainment (maybe drop out high school?). How about reading the latest news on what is going on in the quaint tiny beautiful city of American Canyon  in the tourist haven of Napa Valley in Northern California on a recent racially charged incident directed against the PHL community? Here is an excerpt from the news in case you are too lazy to browse for it:  
        Filipino-Americans in Napa County, California denounced a letter they found in their mail boxes that criticized a certain Filipina and labeled Filipinos as “filthy.”
        The letter also labeled the Filipino community as a filthy group.

        “In addition, the American Canyon Filipino community as filthy as it is [Illegible] unwanted as it is…… doesn’t need to bring additional unwarranted/unlicensed practices which assists in bringing down the already downward spiraling property values in our area,” it said.

        The letter calls Filipinos a gang of scum who marry Americans to have “straight noses” which the sender said to be more acceptable in “non-Filipino societies.” 
        So you see Junsepara its not funny nor nice to be on the other end of the stick. Before you rant on your racial 
        epithet  again maybe you should consider that your words may boomerang back to you? Believe me its neither a funny nor pleasant experience.

      • junsepara

        this are insulting jokes if you can get it, chinks will do anything to bully us but they can’t do it actually, or get the ire of the world, they can change maps, but who cares!!! it is still in their linggo that most of the world will never understand and can’t even say it, so what’s the fuzz??? they can write it in their gobblygook characters and still the same thing, unless they make their gobblygook language as number 1 and not english, he,he,he, and they can never take west philippines sea, not even in their dreams,he,he,he,he, they are just bullying and thats about it, no balls, and most of all U.S. will never allow it, they did not waste lives and a promise so that this region can be taken away from them by this chinks just like that,!!! no way  jose!!!

      • Kaizensigma

        Racial bigotry seems benign, tolerated and just plain all about nothing when you are not on the receiving end of the insult and hate. During this critical period of tension between China and the Phl on the disputed islands, many PHL netizens (most notably the blogger junsepara and others) have jump on various forums and liberally hurled racially charged epithets against all Chinese even the 3-5th generations Phl-Chinese who consider Tagalog as their mother tongue and more at home with the PHL culture than of their parent’s ancestral tongue and culture. These netizens are forgetting the horrible injustice against Japanese-Americans by the US government during WW2 when their properties were seized and they were sent to concentration camps across the USA. Its so true that to be ignorant of history is to be doomed to repeat it. These same netizens are inciting racial hatred and clamoring for mass pogroms, evictions and confiscation of properties without due process. This is a sad reminder of the experience of Jews across Europe. Its only when you found yourself at the other end of the racial hatred that the ugly face of racism become apparent. Case in point the recent racially charged incident against the PHL-AM community in the quaint picturesque American Canyon City in Wine country Napa Valley north of San Francisco where a recent hate mail was mailed to the PHL-AM community. Here is a copy and paste of the incident:  The letter also labeled the Filipino community as a filthy group.“In addition, the American Canyon Filipino community as filthy as it is [Illegible] unwanted as it is…… doesn’t need to bring additional unwarranted/unlicensed practices which assists in bringing down the already downward spiraling property values in our area,” it said.The letter calls Filipinos a gang of scum who marry Americans to have “straight noses” which the sender said to be more acceptable in “non-Filipino societies.”

        So Junsepara, be careful with your choice of words and your racial bigotry and insults, you may find this coming your way and its not a funny nor pleasant experience.

        believe me its not funny and pleasant experience  too, i”ve had it  too being pinoy where I am now, but, I showed them what I can do being bullied most of the time, and now they respect me, why? because pinoy has brains and fights back when they are cornered and bullied, calling them chinks is nothing, a nip in the bud!!! so, before you preach about racism you have to feel it infront of you, I call them chinks because they are a bully, calling them chinks are nothing,he,he,he,he, it does not change anything pinoys didn’t start this, but being a chink like you it is hard explain, you clap with glee as if it is chinks new year everytime phl is being bullied, for your info, chinks came to my area and start bullying, we didn’t go to the area of hainan or near you’re  paracel islands,. it is not napa valley you know, you have no idea of what it is to be racially descriminated, chink!!!

      • Kaizensigma

        Well you just bared naked for the world to see your true “individual character” – a racist bigot. Copying from your esteem Senator M. Defensor-Santiago about not to “sink to the level of the vulgar”, I rest my case.  

      • Kaizensigma

        Hey Junsepara your racial slur finally caught up with you when one of your racially charged comments was deleted by the gma news administrator and a warning given to behave yourself. Shame shame shame on you for implicating your fellow countrymen with your actions and disgusting racial slurs.

    maraming mahihirap na pinoy at mga walang trabahong pinoy at mga tambay na pinoy at mga walang perang pinoy at mga gutom na pinoy kaya Ready tayo sa anumang giyera laban sa china. Ito na ang tamang panahon na makipaggiera tayo sa mga intsik dahil wala naman mawawala sa atin bagkus ay uunlad pa tayo dahil magkakaisa ang lahat ng pinoy sa isang layunin; ang talunin ang tsina. Pagkatapos ng gyera lahat tayong pinoy na matitira ay magkakanya-kanya na muling hanapbuhay kasunod ng pag-ulad ng bawat pinoy.

    Naalala ko ang sinabi ng isang sikat na taipan, na after ng WWII maganda raw ang kinahinatnan nito sa kanila dahil lahat ay nagkaroon ng chance na yumaman dahil lahat ay nagsimula uli sa wala. Kaya dyan na masusubok ang sipag at pagkamaabilidad ng pinoy.

    Mga tsinoy at mayayamang negosyante at mayayabang na pinoy na yumaman lang ang ayaw sa gyera. 

    • bugoybanggers

      Ang problema yung mga walang trabaho at mga tambay yun pa ang mga dakilang DUWAG sa panahon ng gyera. Totoo iyan ang mga taong tulad nila ay MATAPANG LANG KUNG LASING! Kung tunay silang may malasakit, dapat hindi sila TAMBAY! Nagsikap mag hanap ng trabaho at maging responsable sa sarili at sa pamilya o sa BAYAN.
