MAY 2012

7th         Chinese Vice Foreign Minister, Fu Ying, calls a meeting
            with Alex Chua, Charge d'Affaires of the Philippine
            Embassy in China, to make a serious representation over
            the incident at Huangyan Island. Fu Ying says that though
            it has been almost a month since the incident, it has not
            yet been resolved. He stresses the Chinese view that
            Huangyan Island belongs to China and hopes that the
            Philippine side will not escalate tensions without
            considering the consequences. He states that the Chinese
            side will maintain its position and advocate diplomatic
            solutions to the situation.

25th        A senior officials' meeting between the ASEAN Plus 3
            convenes in Phnom Penh. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister,
            Fu Ying, leads a delegation to the meeting.
            The participating senior officials have an in-depth
            exchange of views, mainly on implementing the outcomes
            of the 14th ASEAN Plus 3 Summit and cooperation for the
            next phase and on the preparation for the foreign
            ministers' meeting and leaders'
            meeting later in the year.

26th        Chinese Culture Minister, Cai Wu, and Singapore's
            Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts,
            Yaacob Ibrahim, sign the Sixth Executive Programme on
            Cultural Cooperation in the Arts, Heritage and Library in
            Singapore. Cai says China is willing to work with the
            ASEAN countries to expand cultural cooperation
            and bring it to a higher level.

28th        Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, meets with
            visiting Chinese Foreign Minister, Yang Jiechi.
            Lee says that Singapore attaches great importance to
            developing its relations with China and that he is happy
            with the constant progress achieved by both countries in
            cooperation in various fields. The Chinese side invites
            Lee to visit China at a convenient time. Singapore's
            Deputy Prime Minister, Coordinating Minister for National
            Security and Minister for Home Affairs, Teo Chee Hean,
            also has a meeting with Yang.

JUNE 2012

13th        Chinese Vice Premier, Li Keqiang, meets with visiting
            Myanmar Foreign Minister, U Wunna Maung Lwin,
            in Beijing. Li says that China and Myanmar are important
            neighbours and both share a profound traditional
            friendship that is worth cherishing. U Wunna Maung Lwin
            says his government highly values its friendly
            cooperative relations with China and cherishes the
            "Paukphaw" friendship between both peoples. He adds that
            Myanmar will continue its support for China on issues
            pertaining to China's core interests.

16th        Due to bad weather, the Philippines pull back two vessels
            from Scarborough Shoal, a group of rock formations about
            124 nautical miles west of the Philippines' main island
            of Luzon, to which the two countries lay claim.
            This ends a two-month standoff between the two sides.
            Lightly-armed Philippine coastguard ships had since April
            taken turns escorting a civilian fisheries boat guarding
            the mouth of Scarborough Shoal.

21st        Chinese Vice Foreign Minister, Zhang Zhijun, summons
            Vietnamese Ambassador to China, Nguyen Van Tho, to lodge
            a solemn representation to Vietnam concerning the
            passing of the Maritime Law of Vietnam.
