    “At no point will Chinese vessels be able to fish in Argentine waters” underlined Yauhar.

    I have seen this Chinese tactic before…..
    Fishing in international waters (+201 miles) but entering unlicensed “en masse” (50-100 ships) territorial waters of small countries that only have one or two fisheries control vessels……
    Rings a bell? :-)
    Of course Great Britain could choose to use their Eurofighters to bomb innocent civilian Chinese fishermen….
    That would look great on CNN and China news prime time :-)

    Won't be necessary.
    Royal Navy will ensure Chinese vessels stay out of the Falklands EEZ unless licensed by the FIG.

    Correction, Super Etendard.
    I know the chinese love seafood and they have 1,324,000,000 people to feed.

    @7 But, you see, Chinese vessels won't be allowed inside the Falklands EEZ except by prior arrangement. No FIG fishing license, any Chinese fishing vessel is illegal if seen fishing.

    Then they'll be politely escorted off the Falklands EEZ premises.

    The Chinese are not stupid ... if they want to fish in FIG waters, then they'll quite correctly apply for FIG licences.

    They won't put themselves in the middle od anyone's dispute :-)

    If needs be yes! But the Chinese will carefully avoid such a situation. They, along with the UK, are one of the Big 5 after all :-)

    @20 dab Are you actually saying that China respects the law whilst Argentina doesn't?
