Actual situation of the area

The Paracel Islands are a conglomeration of natural islands, reefs and artificial islands built on top of natural reefs. The ownership situation between the neighbouring countries is controversial, since the zones of economic use and historical claims are overlapping. The more detailed table ilustrates the situation.

The table below summarizes the consolidated information and geographically reviewed situation of the islands and reefs. Different sources were included, which, given the different interests of the neighboring countries, resulted in conflicting information that was at least reconciled geographically. Where this could not be done sufficiently, this is noted in the table. The sources used are noted below the table.

The reefs have been included as they are considered starting points for declaration of territorial claims and are generally used as the basis for artificial islands.

From the controversial assignment - see table - it must be stated seen as incomplete information - the assignment is also controversial. If you note any errors or you have additional information, please let us know by email.
