Six countries in the South China Sea - China, Vietnam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei - are involved in the territorial dispute over the Spratly Islands.

The South China Sea issue is gaining momentum with many regional countries including China laying claims to the Spratly Islands archipelago and its mineral/fossil riches. The Malacca Straits (as opposed to the Lombok, Makassar and Mindoro  Straits and the Sibutu Passage) provide the most economic  Sea Lines of Communications (SLOCs). All countries/economies of the APR thus have a compulsion to keep it open and navigable at all times. And the only Naval Power with the wherewithal to decisively control the Malacca Straits and  other SLOCs - is the US.
