The US-China rivalry apart from being at the global sphere is also prevalent in the maritime domain in the South China Sea (SCS). SCS is important for the global trade and commerce that is marred by the unresolved maritime disputes between China and the Southeast Asian states, mainly Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan. In the last couple of years, there has been increasing naval presence as China is asserting its position and ignoring that of other claimant states that has led to the US intervention. For the US, China’s growing naval presence poses challenge for the global trade by hampering the freedom of navigation, creates security predicaments to its allies in the region and challenges its preeminent maritime power in the Western Pacific. The paper examines the US-China rivalry in SCS that has implication on the region and aggravates the conflict.
