Whats vital is whether the countries involved have sincerity and determination to resolve the disputes.She said China has solved border issue with 12 of its 14 land neighbors through bilateral consultations and negotiations and in accordance with historical evidence and the basic rules of international law. Among these 12 countries, five countries are smaller than the Philippines in area and 10 countries are smaller than the Philippines in population.0Related StoriesVice foreign minister discusses South China Sea with US media delegationCoral coverage declined 80% in South China SeaChinas stance on South China Sea wins more international backingSouth China Sea issueChinese embassy refutes Washington Post editorial on South China SeaPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsEnd excess capacity and boost quality, Li tells SOEsAncient book provides ironclad proof of Chinese ownershipOzone overtakes PM2.5 as the top pollutant in BeijingTourism, a ship of world peace and developmentNGOs take chemical factories to courtRescue vessel eyed for the Nansha IslandsNew lighthouses make sea saferCall to give girls HPV vaccine by top US scientistWomen flock to Hong Kong for HPV inoculationsHeavy rain wreaks havoc in ChinaDouble rainbow adds color to Beijings clear blue skyHighlightsFewer conditions for bonus points to be given at gaokao73 fake colleges exposedInbound tourists, once marginal, now goldenA glimpse into daily life of Chinese patrol police in ItalyHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecial2016 legislative and political advisory sessionsMy Chengdu story…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
