A forum held in Sydney last Saturday was billed as a chance to “clarify facts and standardise understanding” about the maritime territorial dispute to Australia’s north.

An official news report of the gathering, written in Chinese and translated for the ABC’s AM program, said the aims of convening the forum “were to unify thoughts through exchanges, to bring together forces which could protect the core interests of the Chinese nation, to make a call for justice to Australian political circles, so that it can make appropriate preparations for a possible ‘crisis situation'”.

According to the official account, a representative of the Australian Action Committee for Protecting Peace and Justice, pointed out that the South China Sea issue involves the Chinese people’s core interests, and the “South China Sea arbitration” will in no way change the fact that the various islands of the South China Sea and nearby sea areas belong to China.
