China on their initiative to build Nuclear Power Plants in Spratlys Island

Posted by   on

China announced that they want to help other ASEAN countries like Vietnam and the Philippines, despite of the bilateral conflicts about Spratlys Island. They defended its land reclamation nearby the said controversial atoll. Earlier today, the United States vowed to keep sending their military aircraft, and ships in some parts of South China Sea. Also, they called for immediate halt over the reclamation works done by Beijing.

According to US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, he told a high-level security conference in Singapore that Beijing's intensifying reclamation activity was "out of step" with international norms.

"First, we want a peaceful resolution of all disputes. To that end, there should be an immediate and lasting halt to land reclamation by all claimants," Carter added.
"We also oppose any further militarization of disputed features," he said.
Chinese government said the reason why they are staying in the island is for public service use. In a statement made by the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the construction on some reefs in the archipelago was to enable their citizens working there and also to perform international obligation in terms of search and relief efforts.
This really affirms to our post last month that China has been planning to construct 3 to 5 nuclearpower plant. The main purpose is to have solid supply of electricity in the region and by sharing it to others. They will help the Philippine to eliminate energy crisis. Chinese energy ministry said by using a submarine cable, it will link to the Luzon Grid, Western, and Eastern Visayans Grid, up to Mindanao Grip.

In a study by an expert in China, with the electricity supply linkup it will drop from 100% to 15-20% cost of energy that will benefit businesses.

Will the government took nod about the proposal made by the Chinese government?
