Question 3 Explanation: 
  • At the heart of the South China Sea dispute is the "nine-dash line", Beijing's claim that encircles as much as 90 per cent of the contested waters. The line runs as far as 2,000km from the Chinese mainland to within a few hundred kilometres of the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam. Beijing maintains it owns any land or features contained within the line, which confers vaguely defined "historical maritime rights".
  • The nine-dash line-at various times also referred to as the ten-dash line and the eleven-dash line-refers to the undefined, vaguely located, demarcation line used initially by the Republic of China (1912-1949) and subsequently the governments of the Republic of China (ROC, which governs Taiwan) and the People's Republic of China (PRC), for their claims of the major part of the South China Sea.
