"respect the facts" is very puzzling just how "facts" are 'established' here in this statement. This position, by its very nature, disrespects any nation or person with a different set of "facts." Such posturing toward china's regional neighbors is inconsistent at best. It displays an air of arrogance that is one of the major sources of the conflict. international disputes are not 'disputes' if facts presented by one side are 'irrefutable' and have little change to be resolved peacefully when nations take similar views and display this kind of attitute toward others. it is a non-starter for everyone in the region and very difficult to understand given China's suggestions to others about 'mutual respect'. Sure, China wants to appear strong and have its view of the 'facts' be received well, but the use of such language like 'indisputable facts...' ignores the very premise that there are different points of view about the "facts". Such posturing and positioning can only undermine both china's position of territorial claims in the south china sea and its reputation in the international community.
