Aussie analyst: China defends claims to S China Sea based on history

Greg Austin, former Australian intelligence analyst, has studied the South China Sea for over 30 years.

He says, China is defending historical claims that were first made in 1933 by the then government and date back almost five centuries.

He also said quote: “There is no evidence of any Chinese government attack or pressure on any commercial shipping in the South China Sea since 1949 when the Communist Party took control of the Chinese mainland, and even before.”
