Facing recent rights-infringing moves from the Philippines in the South China Sea, the Taiwan authorities near Kinmen in the Taiwan Straits and Japan around the Diaoyu Islands, the China Coast Guard (CCG) carried out intensive law enforcement activities, displaying its capabilities gained from high-quality development and in firmly safeguarding China's territorial sovereignty and maritime interests and upholding order, experts said on Thursday.

On Thursday, the CCG repelled, in accordance with the law, the Ship 3002 of the Philippines' Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources when the vessel illegally intruded into waters adjacent to China's Huangyan Dao (also known as Huangyan Island) in the South China Sea, the CCG said in a notice on the day.

In February alone, the CCG released at least five notices or statements on its measures against illegal Philippine moves around Chinese islands and reefs in the South China Sea, namely Huangyan Dao and Ren'ai Jiao (also known as Ren'ai Reef), with analysts saying the CCG effectively dealt with the Philippines' attempt to take advantage of China's Spring Festival holidays and firmly defended national sovereign security and maritime rights.
