On 1 January the Chinese National Defence Ministry expressed its strong objection over the dispatching of HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navy’s largest-ever warship, towards the South China Sea. The aircraft carrier is set to join American and Japanese troops stationed near the Japanese Ryukyu Islands later this year.

When asked about Britain’s plans during a press conference in Beijing on Thursday, Chinese National Defence Ministry spokesperson Tan Kefei told reporters that the "real source of militarisation in the South China Sea comes from countries outside this region sending their warships thousands of kilometres from home to flex muscles". 

He also warned “The Chinese military will take necessary measures to safeguard its sovereignty, security and development interest as well as peace and stability in the South China Sea”.

China’s nine-dash line claim stipulates that they have sovereignty over most of the South China Sea. This claim breaches several laws regarding international waters and borders. It also conflicts with the sovereignty of other nations such as the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam, who all dispute China’s claims of jurisdiction over the contested region. 

Every year, around $4 trillion in trade passes through the South China Sea, and an estimated $2.6 trillion worth of oil and gas lies beneath its surface. China has staked its claim over these valuable and strategic waters in recent years by building an artificial archipelago known as the Spratly islands.

In July, the United States formally denied China’s ‘illegal claims’ over most of the contested sea. It has frequently criticised it for militarizing the region and has regularly sent warships to challenge the claims. 

In a post-Brexit context, Britain may be trying to exploit the escalating tensions in the South China Sea to reaffirm their military relevance, especially in the wake of a significant defence budget

Armed forces Minister has told parliament:

"On current plans, the Type 45 destroyers will leave service between 2035 and 2038.”

However it is likely the T45s will be extended in service beyond their planned 25-year life.

They have not been run as hard as the frigates and improbable that the Future Anti-Air Warfare Programme will deliver new destroyers in time.
