China courts India over South China Sea

NEW DELHI -- Ahead of the Group of 20 summit in China early next month, Foreign Minister Wang Yi is touring India this weekend in the hope of dissuading Prime Minister Narendra Modi from joining other world leaders in raising the South China Sea dispute.

After a tribunal at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague in the Netherlands decided last month that China's territorial claims in the South China Sea have no legal basis, India urged the countries involved to resolve their disputes through peaceful means "without threat or use of force" and to show "utmost respect" for the United Nations' Convention on the Law of the Sea.
