Rubio Welcomes Trump Administration’s Policy on the South China Sea
Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced its policy on the People’s Republic of China (PRC) maritime claims in the South China Sea:
“Today’s announcement by the Trump Administration makes clear that the United States will support our regional allies in defense of a free and open Indo-Pacific. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) cannot be allowed to illegally assert control over maritime territory in the region and the United States rightly rejected all of Beijing’s spurious claims. China’s unlawful actions will not be tolerated and I urge my colleagues in Congress to swiftly pass my bipartisan South China Sea and East China Sea Sanctions Act (S.1634) to impose costs on Chinese individuals and entities for their flagrant violations of international law.”
