Malaysia media recently published, entitled "Yes, the United States finally came back," the article, the article mentioned that when the United States in the early 90s out of the military presence in Southeast Asia, the United States influence in the region declined significantly, also in the United States in Southeast Asia the eye disappeared years, but today the Obama government began to take action to the world that the United States will return to Southeast Asia. Ma media said U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently at the Shangri-La Dialogue in 2010, the attitude, in fact, suggests that a large country, not to naval weapons and equipment because of its rapid development, we believe that they can do whatever they like in the South China Sea, because the United States will not stand idly by any damage their interests.


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Safety Papers comment on web site recently, said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on behalf of the United States and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations on July 22, 2009 signed the "Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation", the issued a statement: "The United States is now returning to Southeast Asia. Obama and I believe this region to global development, peace and prosperity are very important, and for our ASEAN partners to face various challenges, from regional and global security, economic crisis, and even climate change, conducting contacts. "The United States and Southeast Asia in the economic and cultural ties have already fixed, if the free trade agreement with ASEAN, signed the final success, it can no longer provoke any sparks. Only in the security and military aspects, United States ties with the region gradually lost momentum, an urgent need to further enhance its energy.


Ma media said the year-round at the "karaoke" exercise after leaving 16 years later, the first new members - Cambodia and Bangladesh. Article commented that this follow-up to great effect, and now Southeast Asia, only four countries had not become a U.S. military partner ring member.


The article mentioned that the 2010 Shangri-La Dialogue conference, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates in his speech, unlike in the past evasive, the initiative to provoke and set the U.S. initial public position of the South China Sea territorial disputes. Prove safety to where it has been very self-evident. "Some of these forums can play an important role is to promote open, transparent and equal access to global common ground (the place). This may be the network space, security or freedom of navigation at sea .... The U.S. policy is to defend these principles, and our future will continue to do so. In Asia, our common ground over the years has focused on the sea, to security, trade and commerce, and freedom of navigation ... "" For this reason, the South China Sea will become increasingly receive attention. South China Sea is important not only for neighboring countries, but also in Asia, economic and security interests of the country is no different. "


Gates noted that U.S. policy is very clear that the maintenance of stability, freedom of navigation, free and unhindered economic development points. The United States does not favor any one nation, but against the freedom of navigation sufficient to affect the use of force and action. The United States also opposes any threat to the behavior of U.S. firms, including U.S. companies and the countries impede legitimate access to economic activities. Gates's position with Clinton's remarks last year, the same strain that the U.S. is gradually returning to Southeast Asia. Gates's remarks are in fact implies that a large country, not to naval weapons and equipment because of its rapid development, we believe that they can do whatever they like in the South China Sea, because the United States will not stand idly by any breach of its interests.
