As coastguard boats circle, #Vietnam prepares for bigger challenge in #SouthChinaSea - Vietnamese president calls on country to be ready for all possibilities in the disputed waters…
Vietnam is taking a stronger stand in its dispute with China over the South China Sea. On Monday, Trong told 200 members of the party’s central committee that they must take stock after 3 months of tensions with China over the Vietnamese-controlled & resource-rich Vanguard Reef.
Tensions between the neighbours showed no signs of easing this week as Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Trong, in his role as general secretary of the country’s ruling Communist Party, called on it to “prepare for possible opportunities and challenges” in the disputed waters.

#Vietnam a lonely island of resistance to #China - Hanoi has deftly deployed a three-pronged strategy to counter and deter Beijing’s drive to control the #SouthChinaSea 👍A very good read👍…
Vietnam needs to change its foreign policy, including coming up with a proposal for further developing relations with US to rid itself of Chinese influence,” said maritime expert Hoang Viet referring to the discussions at the October 5 forum, according to a Radio Free Asia report
But China is clearly playing a long game of encircling and squeezing Vietnam’s claims in the sea, replete with tactical retreats and naval misdirection tactics, likely employed to gauge how the US and other regional powers may react to the provocations.

Amid renewed tensions with China in the South China Sea, Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry asserted the country’s claim to the disputed Vanguard Bank Thursday, saying there should be no dispute at all over the westernmost reef in the resource-rich Spratly Islands.
“Vietnam considers that all activities on the East Sea must abide by the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), including respecting the sovereignty, sovereign rights & jurisdiction rights of coastal nations,” she said.

‘Region on the brink’: Map exposes #China’s ‘menacing’ true mission in #SouthChinaSea - Chinese Coast Guard vessels have been harassing the #Russian-owned oil rig near Vanguard Bank, part of the South China Sea just off the coast of #Vietnam.…
Russia may become the unwitting meat in a South China Sea sandwich. Its cash-strapped oil company is drilling there for Vietnam. But Beijing’s getting pushy. Chinese Coast Guard vessels have been harassing the Russian-owned oil rig near Vanguard Bank just off the coast of Vietnam
Now it could be the first significant test of the “bromance” between President Putin and Chairman Xi.
Vietnamese Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh has warned the United Nations that “unilateral action” in the South China Sea risks escalating already high tensions.

Thread: #Vietnam shuns #Huawei as it seeks to build Southeast Asia’s first 5G network - It is an outlier in Southeast Asia, where the #Philippines, #Thailand and #Malaysia are open to deploying Huawei technology - An example to others @Aryanwarlord…
Vietnam is quietly siding with the Trump administration, which has barred Huawei from buying US technology over national security concerns. Vietnam is intent on being the first Asean nation to provide a 5G network – without China’s tech powerhouse Huawei.
Viettel Group, Vietnam’s largest mobile carrier owned by the defence ministry, will deploy Ericsson AB’s equipment in Hanoi and Nokia Oyj’s technology in Ho Chi Minh City, said Viettel chief executive officer Le Dang Dung.

Get vessels out of Vietnamese waters, #Vietnam tells #China again - Vietnam has asked China to withdraw its oil survey vessel and escorts from Vietnamese waters for the second time in a week.…
"Vietnam has made contact multiple times and requested that China withdraws its ships, and not engage in behavior that threatens security and peace in the region," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said at a press meet Thursday.
She said that Chinese ships have returned and seriously infringed on what is Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and continental shelf under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

3: The ships are designed to serve the protection of maritime sovereignty, strengthen security and detect illegal activities like smuggling. They can also assist with search and rescue missions, Vietnam News Agency reported.

I’m particular I liked your characterisation of #DragonBear as a “temporary asymmetric relationship”. But some questions too:
@vtchakarova @amlivemon @Halsrethink @LibrariumViews @JamesGRickards @gbponz @BaldingsWorld @C_Barraud @BcnFox @MacaesBruno @chigrl @RobertMCutler @GrayConnolly @DrPippaM @Kostian_V @wangxiangweihk @IndoPac_Info @michaeltanchum 1) is the main common denominator of #Dragonbear really the exclusion of #US & #EU from #Eurasia (all very Mackinder!)? Are #China’s & #Russia’s #geopolitics the same? Does not Russia aim to exclude while China aims to bridge?
@vtchakarova @amlivemon @Halsrethink @LibrariumViews @JamesGRickards @gbponz @BaldingsWorld @C_Barraud @BcnFox @MacaesBruno @chigrl @RobertMCutler @GrayConnolly @DrPippaM @Kostian_V @wangxiangweihk @IndoPac_Info @michaeltanchum 2) Does #China really need #Russia know how in #diplomacy & #defence? I spent 5 years dealing with Chinese diplomacy, and it has nothing to learn from Russia. I suspect the day’s when China learnt from Russian military and military technology are also long gone

New #tariffs on Chinese goods will hurt foreign companies’ investment confidence in #China and also force China-based manufacturers to relocate their factories to #Vietnam, #Thailand and #Malaysia, reports Jeff Pao.…
The latest decision by United States President Donald Trump to add new tariffs on Chinese goods from next month will further weaken capital investments in China, some economists say.
On Thursday, US Trade representatives returned from Shanghai after talks with Chinese officials. On the same day in US time, Trump announced on Twitter that the US would add an additional tariff of 10% on the remaining US$300 billion of Chinese goods and products.

When the EU-Vietnam FTA comes into force, new rules of origin will apply. Vietnam's #textile industry isn’t developed enough to meet EU’s origin rules. Local producers rely on imported raw materials. Making it difficult to fulfil value added rules /2
In order to be able to benefit from #customs tariff reductions under the EU deal, local enterprises will have to invest in production facilities in the country as well as in supporting industries /3

#Philippine government is not impressed with #Malaysia, #Vietnam fierce stance vs #China over the maritime dispute in the South China Sea, saying that their actions put the lives & safety of their people in danger. Right, lets surrender like Duterte does…
A standoff between Vietnamese & Chinese forces has been going on for weeks near an oil-rich area within Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone. The same activity was seen in May 2019, when a Chinese vessel patrolled waters near Luconia Shoals off the coast of Malaysia’s Sarawak State.
Asked if Vietnam’s move should serve as a model for the Philippines to address the West Philippine Sea dispute, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said: “It means also that Vietnam is risking an armed hostility between the two countries and risking the lives of their people.”

#Malaysia, #Vietnam show PH can stand up to #China - 'When claimants stand up for themselves and refuse to be intimidated, Beijing most often backs down rather than uses force,' says Gregory Poling of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative 👍 Good one…
Malaysia & Vietnam's continued oil and gas operations in the South China Sea despite tense encounters with Chinese Coast Guard vessels in their waters showed there's a way Philippines can stand up to Chinese aggression should it pursue oil explorations in the West Philippine Sea.
In an interview with Rappler, Gregory Poling, one of the world's leading experts on the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), said standoffs between China and Malaysia and Vietnam occurred near oil rigs located in the two Southeast Asian countries' exclusive economic zones.

Is #Huawei a Security Threat? #Vietnam Isn’t Taking Any Chances - As the world splits along #US-China# fault lines, telecom companies in Vietnam appear to be quietly avoiding the Chinese tech giant in their 5G plans.…
At first glance, this fast-developing nation might seem to be a natural customer for Huawei. Its economy is entwined with China’s, and Beijing has embraced the country’s Communist Party leaders in Hanoi as ideological brethren.
Yet Vietnam’s leading mobile carriers appear to be keeping Huawei out of their 5G plans, even if the government’s fear of incensing Beijing most likely prevents them from saying so.

#Russian Nanuchka-III-class corvette upgraded with 16 KH-35 anti ship missiles. Its an old ship, but I see some interesting upgrade possibilities for this class. There is one that was upgraded with 12 P-800 Oniks /Yakhont missiles (Could also use Brahmos). @CollinSLKoh
I wonder why the Russians upgraded the Tarantul design to the Molniya class, when it would it have been more effective to use the Nanuchka-III-class design which is 3 meters longer & already had a short range air defense system, something that the Molniya doesn't have.
#Vietnam has 8 Molniya class corvettes. I would have rather prefer to have a modernized version of the Nanuchka-III-class instead. Molniya class pics of the Vietnamese Navy.
