Days after an international tribunal⚖ dismissed 🇨🇳China's claims in the South China Sea🌊 (SCS), a shocking report has claimed that China might build nuclear☢ power plants😱 in the disputed⚔ waters. The report by the state-run Global Times📰 cited the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) as saying🔈: "Marine nuclear power platform construction will be used to support China's effective control in the South China Sea." However, the original report📜 published on CNNC's social media💻 platform was deleted❌ on Friday. The report further claimed👉 that once the South China Sea electricity and power system is strengthened💪, China will speed💨 up the commercial development of the region.
China has called the verdict🔨 of the court of arbitration as a 😳waste paper and warned its rival👊 countries that SCS will become a cradle of war💥 if the dispute goes on. Beijing had announced📢 the development of 2⃣ marine🌊 nuclear power plants earlier in its five-year📅 plan for 2016-2020. But the 🤔locations of the plants were not 😕specified.
