By Bernard D. Cole - The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified disputes with other countries in the region in recent years, especially since China has increased its naval presence.

Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.
