U.S. calls on South Korea to support international arbitration decision on South China Sea

Asahi wrote from Seoul that it has learned from a source connected to U.S.-ROK relations that the United States has informally called on South Korea to express its support for a ruling to be made soon by the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague over the Philippines’ claim that China’s claims over the South China Sea violate international law. Seoul has remained noncommittal on the matter out of consideration for China. The South China Sea will be discussed at the Shangri-La Dialogue to be held in Singapore starting today.
