This action shows that China has grossly violated Vietnam's sovereignty contrary to what they have recently "proposed" to high-ranking Vietnamese leaders; in doing so, China cannot be regarded as a "responsible major power" as has been declared by itself.

This is also a complicated dispute without any legal or political solution so far, somehow more complicated with repeated tensions and settlements followed by growing flares up since the Chinese side attempts to change the status quo by deliberately changing the form of the islands, expanding long-term occupation in more and more waters in order to gain control of the trade flows in the South China Sea. At the same time, China deliberately seeks to take the Paracel Islands as a naval base for protecting its mainland from far away, or as a springboard to attack its neighboring countries.
