China is refusing to recognise The Hague's historic court ruling over territory in the South China Sea, in favour of the Philippines. Beijing says it might now boost its military presence in the region.
A report by the Taiwanese Defense Ministry states that China has placed surface-to-air missiles on the disputed Woody Island. Taiwanese President-elect Tsai Ing-wen called on all parties to "exercise self-control based on the principle of peaceful resolution of disputes in the South China Sea," while Harry B. Harris Jr, commander of the US Pacific Fleet, said that such a move would be "a militarisation of the South China Sea in ways" that China's President Xi Jinping had pledged not to make.
