He also said that the situation around Huangyan Island is getting better overall. He did add, on the other hand, that Chinese vessels will continue to guard the Island.

Hong says, "China has indisputable sovereignty over the Nansha-Islands and its adjacent waters. China opposes any illegal actions that infringe on China's sovereignty. We hope that relevant countries follow The Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea and refrain from any action that will complicate or escalate the issue.
