VTV.vn - An international seminar on territorial disputes, the maintenance of peace and law in the era of globalisation was held at the Russian Academy of Justice in Moscow on Monday March 21th.

In the seminar, new tensions in the East Sea attracted serious concerns among Russian experts, academics and policy makers.

New security challenges in the East Sea such as the construction of artificial islands and runways and deployment of surface to air missile systems by China raised concerns among Russian experts.

According to experts, China has been hightening its militarisation in the East Sea, while terrorism, the war in Syria and subsequent migration crisis has absorbed public attention. Meanwhile, the East Sea still poses the risk of becoming the hotspot for international tensions.

Russian experts also recommended some specific legal mechanisms such as filing a petition with the International and ASEAN Courts of Justice as well as legal solutions to ensure peace and security in the East Sea, especially ASEAN countries should speed up the ratification of the Code of Conduct and strive further preserve the neutrality of the East Sea, possibly via treaty./
