China Sends 4 More Fighter Jets To Oil Rig Area As Vietnam Threatens Legal Action

China Sends 4 More Fighter Jets To Oil Rig Area As Vietnam Threatens Legal Action (ZeroHedge, June 2, 2014):

A number of Vietnamese officials have now threatened to bring legal action against China over their territorial dispute in the South China Sea; but it does not seem to be having any impact on China’s efforts to defend and sustain their presence. As Bloomberg reports, a total of five Chinese fighter jets have now been deployed to the area of exploration in disputed waters off the coast of Vietnam today (compared to 1 previous day) citing Fishing Control Department under Vietnam’s agriculture ministry. China has refused to answer the case the Philippines filed with an international tribunal at The Hague. It is likely to pursue a similar strategy if Vietnam appeals to international law in its own disputes with China.
