Wehell, it appears that as far as Beijing is concerned IT IS NOW!
As I've warned or inferred on the Net, ambitious "post-US" Global #1 wannabe Rising China wants overseas strategic access = "sole" base rights [Air-Sea-Space Ports] throughout the mostly pro-US "First Island Chain", espec vee TAIWAN, BUT ISN'T GETTING IT.
* RE-INTEGRATION, "INEVITABLE" REUNIFICATION WID TAIWAN = DIVIDES THE "FIRST ISLAND CHAIN" IN ROUGHLY HALF + IS CHINA'S ALL-ENCOMPASSING KEY TO UNFETTERED STRATEGIC ACCESS INTO WESTPAC + FAR PACOAS.
Short of war, China like any other "great State/Power" in Political + World History, is not willing to wait until 2080, 2100, or beyond to achieve its perceived post-US "Manifest Destiny", hence is "hedging" ala enforcement, expansion, or consolidation of its claims of "sole" or unilateral sovereignty to a host of disputed island groups from NE Asia to the South China Sea + beyond.
As long as sovereign control of Taiwan is out of China's hands, it is unlikely to make any comprises wid the ASEAN States as per disputed islands in the South China Sea.
