G7 Foreign Ministers’ Declaration on Maritime Security in Lübeck, 15 April 2015

TĐH: This declaration of G7 is a very well coordinated global maritime strategy to deal with all issues related to maritime security of the world. And it contains the strength of a dominant group of naval powers of the world: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and the European Union (which is very much the entire Europe, not just one country).
In this long document East and South China Sea is the first item of concern. So we need to understand that China’s aggressive behavior has the benefit of bringing the world together to deal with China, with laws and naval powers. China will see its undoing eventually. The world will slowly squeeze China in so many ways, on so many fronts, one step at a time.

G7 Foreign Ministers’ Declaration on Maritime Security in Lübeck, 15 April 2015

It connects states and regions and makes otherwise distant nations neighbours. Humankind depends on a safe, sound and secure maritime domain in order to preserve peace, enhance international security and stability, feed billions of people, foster human development, generate economic growth and prosperity, secure the energy supply and preserve ecological diversity and coastal livelihoods. As the world’s population grows, our reliance on the oceans as a highway for commerce and a source of food and resources will increase even more. The free and unimpeded use of the world’s oceans undergirds every nation’s journey into the future. Tiếp tục đọc “G7 Foreign Ministers’ Declaration on Maritime Security in Lübeck, 15 April 2015”
