Territorial dispute regarding the South China Sea

South Africa has noted with concern the recent trend in the global arena to politicise the situation pertaining to the South China Sea.

South Africa supports the position that the sovereign states that are directly concerned should resolve their relevant disputes through direct consultations and negotiations, on the basis of respecting historical facts and in accordance with international law, as well as to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea.

South Africa believes that the international community should support all efforts aimed at safeguarding peace and stability in the region.
