‘Abe set the stage during the keynote speech on Friday, in which he laid out three principles for the “rule of law at sea.” Those principles, “making claims that are faithful in light of international law, not resorting to force or coercion, and resolving all disputes through peaceful means,” were directly targeted at recent Chinese actions in the South China Sea and East China Sea.’
