China goes full Honey Badger on South China Sea Hague ruling

China has ‘no historic rights’ in South China Sea, rules Hague tribunal

An international tribunal on Tuesday ruled against China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, after the Philippines challenged Beijing’s right to exploit resources across vast swathes of the strategic waters.

In a 497-page ruling that risks stoking further tensions in South-East Asia, a Hague-based arbitration court said there was no legal basis for China to claim historic rights over the waters of the South China Sea and that it had breached the Philippines’ sovereign rights with its actions.

China immediately said it would defy the decision, which it described as “null and void” with “no binding force”.
