China's Bullying Behavior at Sea
JoongAng Daily, JoongAng Daily
The Korean public has been enraged by the Chinese government’s insolence and lack of propriety after a Coast Guard sailor was killed and others injured by Chinese illegally fishing Korean waters. Beijing has not expressed any sign of regret about the incident, which occurred when a crackdown on illegal Chinese fishermen ended tragically when the Chinese captain of a trawler stabbed two SWAT team members who were attempting to seize the boat. Only after the Korean media and public created an uproar over the matter did Beijing issue a statement describing it as an unfortunate incident.
