Five judges handed down an obtuse and unjust ruling that ignored historical facts and international realities. The court classified all of the disputed islandsin the South China Sea as reefs. It even classified Taiping Island, the largest naturally occurring island in the region, which belongs to Taiwan and is clearly an island suitable for human habitation, as a reef.  


The tribunal pandered to hegemony, revealed flagrant favoritism and attempted to change the existing order in the South China Sea by decree. The tribunal was simultaneously delusional and naive. The ruling may force Beijing to escalate foreign policy confrontation and may well lead to even more disputes.


The writer is advisory commissioner for the Overseas Community Affairs Council of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in the United States.
