This is actually a significant development about the story of dispute between ASEAN countries and China. Even Chinese diplomat called it “milestone document”. There are several reason why the document is very important. First, because the sea is very hot. The South China Sea is a resource-rich area. Countries that involved in the dispute will surely use their ultimate power to defend their claim. Therefore, without behavior agreement, the dispute could become even worser than ever. Second, because China, as the most powerful country in the region, has resisted such agreement for years. This is just make the dispute more complicated. The most powerful country just resisted such binding code of conduct. But, with some complicated diplomatic strategy, China finally agreed such binding code. Actually, this is a mystery for me. The question, what China will get from such binding agreement. Logically, such binding agreement will only limiting China’s action on the South China Sea. Subsequently, ASEAN countries are the luckiest. China’s threat will be limited because of the agreement.
