Xi Jinping government's new law, foreigners entering China without permission will be arrested

China has made a new maritime law to increase its dominance in the South China Sea. According to this, if anyone enters foreign territory without permission, the Chinese coast guard can detain him. This law has come into force from today.

According to Al Jazeera, in serious cases of intrusion in the South China Sea, China will be able to detain the accused for 60 days without trial. China claims the entire South China Sea as its part, while many South Asian countries like Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia also claim it.

In view of the dispute in the South China Sea, China has deployed many of its boats and coast guards to monitor the area. In the past few years, there has been tension between the two countries over the presence of Philippines and Chinese ships in this area. On China's new law, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos said that it is extremely worrying. On the other hand, the Philippines Foreign Ministry announced that it has submitted legal documents related to its claim on the South China Sea to the United Nations.

After China's new law, the Philippines said that it will take necessary steps to protect its fishermen in the South China Sea. He also told the fishermen that they can continue their work in the country's maritime border without fearing China's law. In fact, China's coast guards often spray water from water cannons on Philippine ships in the South China Sea. Apart from this, there have been clashes between the soldiers of both countries, in which Philippine soldiers have been injured.

On October 22 last year, a Chinese coast guard ship collided with a Philippines coast guard ship. On the other hand, in September, Beijing installed floating barriers in the Scarborough Shoal area to stop Philippine fishing vessels in the South China Sea. However, the Philippines later dismantled it.
