China claims most of the part of the South China Sea, through which $5 trillion ship-borne deal passes every year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei also have overlapping claims. China’s production of facilities for “ military purposes” on man-made islands in the South China Sea is raising tensions and risks “ militarization” by the other claimant states.
Recently they made seven artificial islands in the Spratly archipelago on the South China Sea. Chinese renovation and building work on its islands were to progress living conditions and offer facilities like lighthouses and weather stations.
