The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media. The opinons stated are those of the Chinese government, and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail:

Oriental Outlook, a weekly feature in the Chinese government’s mouthpiece Xinhua News Agency, published a report today on what Chinese warplanes see in the South China Sea.

Ding Jiahe, a pilot of the North Sea Fleet, told a reporter of the weekly that he saw airfields expanded and missiles deployed on the islands and reefs that were taken illegally by other countries from China.

What he has found in his reconnaissance flights have often been used by spokesmen of Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs as indisputable evidence.

He has monitored the illegal oil wells that certain countries illegally exploited oil in the waters claimed by China, taken photos and notes of the location, equipment and the amount of oil exploited.

He said that in the past, he seldom saw Chinese ships in the sea areas monitored by him but now he often sees Chinese fishery administration and coast guard ships there and whenever he sees some foreign warships with “certain intention”, there are always Chinese warships nearby.
