Hvordan bevarer man freden mellem USA og Kina? Det er vanskeligt, konkluderer Jerome Cohen i denne kronik i South China Morning Post:

China, in flatly rejecting all opportunities for peaceful settlement of maritime as well as territorial disputes through international arbitration, adjudication and other third-party procedures, is plainly out of step with the practices of other Asian countries and the rest of the world.

The present crisis in the South China Sea has a significance that goes far beyond the immediate claims involved. If China – and the United States, which has not yet even acceded to the Law of the Sea treaty – cannot agree upon and respect in practice mutually beneficial rules and institutions for peacefully settling disputes, the future of both countries and the world community will surely be gloomy.
