US TO SANCTION THOSE INVOLVED IN DISPUTED OUTPOSTS IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, OR USE OF COERCION AGAINST CLAIMANTS TO INHIBIT THEIR ACCESS TO OFFSHORE RESOURCES

A news release from the US State Department on 14 January advises that visa restrictions will be imposed on Chinese nationals, including executives of state-owned enterprises, and officials in government and the PLA Navy, who are “responsible for, or complicit in, either the large-scale reclamation, construction, or militarisation of disputed outposts in the South China Sea, or the PRC’s use of coercion against South East Asian claimants to inhibit their access to offshore resources in the South China Sea”.  As usual with such visa restrictions, immediate family members may also become subject to these visa restrictions.
