with a population of around 1.404 billion people, it’s massive landwise. The country is approximately 3,700,000 square
miles (9,600,000 square kilometers) making it slightly larger than the United States
in land area. Although China spans 5 geographical time zones,
the whole country follows a single standard time. China’s home to 56 ethnic groups. Linguists estimate that there are nearly 300
living languages spoken in China with Mandarin Chinese having the most speakers– around
955 million people. China is governed by the Communist Party of
China which administers the country from the capital of Beijing. The country is rapidly developing and is on
track to become a superpower. Here are 6 places China is attempting to subjugate
to expand its borders, economic and global influence. Number 1: Tibet – China has a long and volatile
relationship with Tibet. Beginning in the 13th century and throughout
different periods in history, Tibet has been ruled by Chinese and Mogolian dynasties and
has also been an independent nation. In the first quarter of the 20th century,
Tibet was ruled by Great Britain before once again became an independent nation. In 1950 Chinese troops invaded Tibet to enforce
China’s age old claim on the country. Some areas became the Tibetan Autonomous Region
and others were assimilated into neighboring Chinese provinces. In 1959, after a failed anti-Chinese revolt,
the spiritual leader of Tibet, the 14th Dalai Lama fled the country and set up a government
in exile in India. During China’s Cultural Revolution, many Buddhist
monasteries were destroyed and thousands of Tibetans were likely slaughtered during martial
law. Due to international pressure, in the 1980s
China somewhat relaxed its grip on Tibet and implemented reforms. Currently Beijing continues to modernize Tibet,
sometimes at the cost of the region’s cultural heritage. Development has brought Han Chinese migrants
and western tourism to the area. Since the early 2000s there have been protests
in Tibet, especially on the anniversaries of politically significant dates. Human rights groups say that China continues
to politically and religiously repression Tibet. Various activists worldwide campaign for an
independent Tibet. There are several strategic and economic motives
China has for governing the region. Tibet is highly important to China’s sense
of self and Chinese nationalism. Many Chinese leaders past and present have
believed that no matter the lines drawn on a map, Tibet is fundamentally a part of China. They’ve felt a strong nationalistic drive
to return China to its ancient far flung Qing Dynasty borders. Tibet also serves as a buffer zone between
China on one side and India, Nepal, and Bangladesh on the other. The Himalayan mountain range provides natural
security as well as a military advantage. China is currently struggling to find a balance
between environmental issues and yet not hinder the country’s economic industry. China is hungry for natural resources and
Tibet serves as a crucial water source as well as possessing significant mineral wealth. Since the early 2000’s Beijing has invested
billions in Tibet as part of its wide-ranging economic development plan for Western China. Number 2: Arunachal Pradesh – China also claims
that the region of Arunachal Pradesh, the northeasternmost state of the 28 states of
India is a part of south Tibet and therefore a part of China. Aside from India, Taiwan also claims the South
Tibet region. Arunachal Pradesh borders the Indian states
of Assam and Nagaland to the south, and countries Bhutan to the west, Myanmar to the east. To the north, the demarcation line known as
the McMahon line separates Arunachal Pradesh from the Tibetan area of China. Historically Arunachal Pradesh belong to neither
China nor India, but was dominated by several autonomous tribes. In 1913–1914 representatives from Great
Britain, China, and Tibet held the Simla Conference to decide on border lines for Tibet. The Tibetan and British officials agreed on
the McMahon line as the border between British India and Outer Tibet. The Chinese representatives refused the demarcation
line and have considered it invalid ever since. When China invaded Tibet in 1950 and the Dalai
Lama later fled Tibet, India supported the Tibetan government, angering China. During the Sino-Indian border conflict of
1962, China captured most of the area of Arunachal Pradesh, but ended up withdrawing. In recent years, tensions have risen as China
has publicly claimed the region of Arunachal Pradesh. China is especially interested in a small
district called Tawang, which borders Tibet and Bhutan. China has even gone so far as to destroy thousands
of maps and make new ones having renamed parts of Arunachal Pradesh with Chinese names. India, while not growing as fast as China,
is still emerging as a regional economic powerhouse. China wants dominate Asia and sometimes seems
to look for ways to clash with India. Most importantly, it is strongly assumed that
there are heavy deposits of minerals such as gold and lithium in Arunachal Pradesh. A large scale Chinese mining found gold and
silver deposits worth around $60 billion in the Lhunze county of Tibet which is directly
adjacent to Arunachal Pradesh. Number 3: Aksai Chin – China and India also
clash over another border region, Aksai Chin, near Kashmir. Aksai Chin is mainly in Hotan County, in the
southwestern part of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region with a small area on the southeast
and south sides lying within the extreme west of the Tibet Autonomous Region. India claims Aksai Chin as a part of the Ladakh
region of the Jammu and Kashmir state. Aksai Chin is a remote, inhospitable region
where mainly nomadic tribes roam. The area was ignored until the 1950s when
China built a military road through it to connect Tibet with Xinjiang. India was angry upon discovery of the road
and it ended up becoming a major factor in the Sino-Indian border conflict of 1962. At the end of the clash, China retained control
of about 14,700 square miles (38,000 square km) of territory in Aksai Chin. In 1993 and 1996, the two countries signed
agreements to respect the Line of Actual Control, the demarcation line that separates Indian-controlled
territory from Chinese-controlled territory in Jammu and Kashmir. Not only does wants China want Aksai Chin
for maintaining a direct route between Tibet and Xinjiang, it appreciates the territory
for its strategic position. Aksai Chin is mostly high ground with an average
elevation of around 17,000 feet (5,180 metres). If China ever goes to war with its neighbors
Pakistan, Kashmir and India, the Aksai Chin region will enable it to take a commanding,
high position. Number 4: The South China Sea – As well as
claiming disputed land, China has also claimed islands in the South China Sea. In fact, China has taken to dredging the sea
and building out uninhabited islands such as Woody Island or the Spratly Islands to
tighten its control over the region. Six countries: The Philippines, Vietnam, China,
Brunei, Taiwan and Malaysia hold different territorial, sometimes overlapping claims
over the South China sea, based on various historical accounts and geography. Adding to the tension, the US navy frequently
patrols the sea due to its alliance with several countries. China considers this to be provocation. The South China Sea is very important to Beijing
because it’s a crucial commercial passage connecting Asia with Europe and Africa. One third of global shipping or $3.37 trillion
USD dollars of international trade passes through the South China Sea. Furthermore, the seabed is rich with major
oil and gas reserves. The US Energy Information Administration estimates
the region contains at least 11 billion barrels of crude oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of
natural gas. Also the South China Sea is a vital food source,
accounting for 10% of the world’s fisheries. In July 2016, an international tribunal in
The Hague ruled that China had no “historic rights” over the sea and that some of the
rocky outcrops claimed by several countries could not legally be used as the basis for
territorial claims. Beijing rejected the ruling. More recently some southeast Asian nations
have considered having bilateral talks with China to settle the dispute. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations,
ASEAN has been working with China to create an official code of conduct to avoid clashes
in the disputed waters. Number 5: Taiwan – China has had an ongoing
dispute with Taiwan for decades. It views Taiwan as a breakaway province that
will eventually be part of the country again, but many Taiwanese citizens want a completely
separate nation. Historically Taiwan was a part of China. Taiwan was governed by China’s Qing dynasty
from 1683 to 1895. When Japan won the First Sino-Japanese War,
China has to cede the region to them. After World War II, Japan was forced to relinquish
to China control of the territory it had previously taken. Civil war broke out in China in 1946 and ended
in a victory for Mao Zedong’s Communist army. Chiang Kai-shek and his Chinese Nationalist
Party–known as the Kuomintang, or KMT fled to Taiwan. The KMT dominated Taiwan’s politics for many
years, until after Chiang Kai-shek’s death. Having inherited an effective dictatorship
and under pressure from a burgeoning democracy movement, Chiang’s son, Chiang Ching-kuo,
began allowing a process of democratisation, which in 2000 led to the election of the island’s
first non-KMT president, Chen Shui-bian. Meanwhile China treated Taiwan with great
hostility. In the 1980s, relations between China and
Taiwan started improving. China put forth the “one country, two systems”
plan under which Taiwan would be given significant autonomy if it accepted Chinese reunification. Taiwan refused, but did relax rules for its
citizens to visit and investment in China. Since the 1970s, the US has been a close ally
of Taiwan and has sold billions in defensive weapons to the country. Currently, US policy in the region has been
described as “strategic ambiguity”, seeking to balance recognition of China’s emergence
as a regional power with US support for Taiwan’s economic success and democratisation. In recent years China has been alarmed by
Tawianese citizens electing politicians who favor independence from China. Furthermore, the Taiwanese public has staged
various protests about Beijing’s policies regarding the country. Currently Taiwan’s legal status is unclear,
in limbo. The country has its own constitution, democratically
elected leaders, and is own armed forces with about 300,000 active troops. China wants Taiwan to return to the fold because
of nationalism. Also Taiwan being a part of China is a strategic
defensive move. If Taiwan was to become an independent nation,
with its close ties to America, the US would likely have a naval port and military base
in Taiwan, right on China’s doorstep. Number 6: Hong Kong – One final place where
China is attempting to expand its power is Hong Kong. At the end of the first Opium War in 1842,
part of Hong Kong Island became a British colony. Later, China leased the rest of Hong Kong
– the New Territories – to the British for 99 years. By the 1950s, Hong Kong had become a busy
commercial port, and a manufacturing hub. As the end of the 99-year-lease approached,
Britain and China held talks on the future of Hong Kong. In 1984 a deal was reached that Hong Kong
would return to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country, two systems”. As a result, Hong Kong has a high degree of
autonomy with its own legal system and borders, and rights including freedom of assembly and
free speech for the next 50 years. However in recent years Beijing has been treading
on Hong Kong rights. Artists and writers say they are under increased
pressure to self-censor and democracy has been limited, the current leader was elected
by a 1,200-member pro-Beijing election committee chosen by just 6% of eligible voters. Throughout the spring and summer of 2019 large
protests erupted in Hong Kong in response to a proposed bill permitting the extradition
of fugitives to mainland China. Citizens worry the bill will be used to target,
detain and extradite political dissents. Beijing’s response to the protests has become
increasingly violent as the citizens show no signs of backing down. China considers Hong Kong a bridge between
Asia and the west for business and financial matters. Also, once again China’s domination of Hong
Kong seems to be fueled by nationlistic fervor. You don’t have to be a rapidly expanding

  • This is exactly what Alex Jones was talking about which led him to get banned everywhere! The deep state Chinese globalists have paid off the entire mainstream media and Democratic Party in America. They’re controlling American news and politics, causing the country to divide and weaken itself from within. They’ve been manipulating America’s economy and are hoping to crash it. They are the globalists Alex Jones was warning us about and their agenda is to eventually dominate the world, and they’re on track!

  • So China revamp there history. even africa would be chinese territory

  • tell me which country has ever recognized Tibet as an independent country????

  • China going to war against Pakistan… last time i check China and Paskistan are allies, can't take the Infographics seriously when they don't even bother researching geopolitics and history of that region properly, the only ''Info'' about the ''Infographics'' is their Pro-US Imperialist propaganda. Want to talk about hypothetical aggressive Chinese wars? how the US, they waged more aggressive undeclared wars against foreign nations in the past 2 decades than any form of government of China had in the past 2 centuries.

  • Its Greed, Pride and Power will be its Own Demise.

  • 2019…you totally left out a hong kong citizen murdered his girlfriend chopped in pieces and placed in a suit case in Taiwan and left Taiwan flew back to hong Kong and only get arrested but released because crime occurred overseas is not a crime in hong Kong????

  • Ha, the americans have expanded 400 military bases around China, 60% of the military force is on China's doorstep. Then "free media" declared "China is invading and expanding!" How hypocritical

  • Pakistan to china: Give me loan, I will sell my women to you and I shall also become Pakistan😅

  • we will reform the qing dynasty's land and we will take more lands to prove we are more stronger so that we won't have nothing to tell our ancestors,

  • Do you even know your dear ex-Secretary Dulles set 3 "island chains" around China decades ago?
    American‘s ignorance on sovereignty is simply due to your geographical advantages. Your sovereignty never been threathen beacause you're living in a seperate continent robbed from Indians. Even in WWI and WWII, you were playing as speculator rather than patriot. No signle bomd has been droped on your mainland except those dropped by yourself.

  • Communist party is multiethnic, not necessarily governed by the Han Chinese, even if majority of its members are Han Chinese, these people have no ethnic awareness and actually suppress the revival of the Han Chinese nationality, instead they encourage the identity of 中华民族 or Chinese nation.

  • They need to feed their people. There are millions starving. Lets face the truth. They are making a chain of islands accross the south china seas completely against international laws. They are militarising these islands and creating an impregnable wall accross the whole area. That would make it far easier to bully and take over the smaller Asian countries. They have already infiltrated most of them financially and physically. The Philippines for example. So many restraunts accross the whole country have opened suddenly. Now on Boracay Island too many Chinese food establishments have opened in the last year. The rents for the places ate enormous. Firstly they do all they can to disuade anyone entering except Chinese. There are never enough customers to make these businesses profitable so who is subsidising them. Of course the Chinese Gov. Their body language is pure military. Not paranoia !!! Fact. !!!. The Philippines has been infiltratef already. The most strategical place in the Asian Pacific. The Japanese did exactly the same thing just prior to WW11. Look it up !!!!. The Philippine gov do not see this and 3 months ago a Philippino senator said " we are being infiltrated by China ". 2 times on philippine news. Then silenced. The world better start preparing for war as China certainly is.. For the peace of the world. THEY MUST BE STOPPED NOW.

  • Whe need video about How asia can be china in the next 50 years

  • I am Arunachali boy. Apatani tribe

  • Mandarine Chinese eh

  • Lack history man, you don't the real geography.
    India is a young country but oldest civilization
    Not only Arunachal Pradesh but every other neighborhood had influence of India, and Tibet is religion based region which is Buddhism *ORIGINATED FROM INDIA( mainland)

    You are full of nonsense man

  • You really need to get your facts right. Western countries came and invaded china, splitting up china like a piece of cake and rule them as their sovereignty. China has the rights to reclaim what it originally theirs.

  • And inner mongolia

  • Every heard of the golden rule? Those whom have the gold make the rules.

  • 3:47 demarcation line in the contested area between India and China in the Arunachal Padesh.

  • I am really offended with the animation you use for Indians. What fo you think all Indians apply Red dots on their forehead? Do a simple google search on Indians.

  • How China un expanded

  • 1.5 thousand unlikes. If you can not tell the truth, at least be funny

  • 1.5 thousand unlikes. If you can not tell the truth, at least be funny

  • With a name like "info" graphics show u show an incorrect image of India!

  • 6:34 ObiOne: Don’t try it, I’ve the high ground!

  • They slowly making an empire

  • The Chinese are hardly trying to limit the scope of their expansion to these six regions. China has global dominance in mind. And nothing short of that will please Beijing. What do you think the One Road One Belt strategy really is? As usual infographics opinion is at best naive.

  • I think Tibet people don't want to be independent, they have school, hospital, food, money, cars, safe and peaceful life. Inner Mongolia's GDP is 20 times that of Mongolia, and GDP per capita is three times that of Mongolia, why you want to be independent? you don't like the money?

  • India must immediately hand over Arunachal Pradesh to China.
    It will be better for the people of Arunachal Pradesh. India is an artificial country created by the British.

  • All the United States has to do is just reinstate the Emperor of Japan like in 1941 , and its Bushido code & Samurai's will put it foot on the Chinese communist neck . Japan as our Allies, will be the New Sheriff in South Asian " problem solved. 🇯🇵🇺🇸👍👍

  • I am Adi… From arunachal n we r Indian.

  • Well if China did get all this they would be the global power country.

  • 10:41 Taiwan IS an Independent Nation.

  • South China Sea should be named West Vietnam Sea

  • Go learn some history of how India Americans died before having guts to talk about other countries, basically all youtube propagandas against China are paid by CIA. free media in USA is a joke, just keep pretending that we don't know the truth.

  • Yet people accuse the USA of being warmongers and power hungry which are proven completely fake because the USA is a righteous country which never bullies other countries.

  • 中国万岁

  • Nice video and smooth transition to dashlane at the end lol

  • Don't make comments or pass judgement.. .. Most places where China puts their flag prospers… USA puts their flag demolishes, Latin American, Africa, Arabs, Philippines, ……..

  • Look up the social credit system China is developing. This is how they
    think. The Chinese Century would be a nightmare. Western corporations
    are selling out for Chinese money.

  • 外国媒体跟沙雕们开始了意淫hahahhahaha

  • as a chinese, when i first saw the title, i thought the content must full of prejudices to my mother country. But in fact, i think it is very objective. we dont want war, we also like peace, but we also dont want to be hypocrisy. nowadays we all fighting for our own countries' benefit, i hope one day we can fight for all human being.

  • Bruh China be copying 1700’s Europe soon

  • China's expansion has the same reason as japan's expansionism back in WWII. China needs resources for its growing economy, also china wants an additional layer of protection around its border against perceived foreign threats. Also china has this mentality that it is the rightful ruler of this earth and that it has the right to avenge against those who mistreated china before and that includes japan, the US and the rest of the western world. Unfortunately this twisted ideas of china comes at the expense of other countries around it. And like what happened to japan and germany after WWI, i hope china wakes up before its too late.

  • Our elites love chines communistic slavery….they cant get enough of it.

    They want it for us too….

  • it's funny how people are fearmongering against China yet China has not waged a single war in over 30 years while the "freedom-loving and peaceful" America stuck in never-ending wars and has the audacity to call other countries warmonger and evil expansionist?

  • Indios vs chinese

  • 10:58 "Part of Hong Kong Island" Only part? I'm pretty sure the whole island became British, with Kowloon and the New Territories coming later.

  • Red commies

  • Why is us still dealing with China since they are anti communist

  • Honestly all are Chinese and should therefore return to China.

  • Our Criminal politicians here in Australia have just about sold us out to China.
    Thanks to our Federal, State and Local Government. This wouldn't happen anywhere else in the world.

  • All that Taiwan needs is for Donald Trump to openly recognize it as a country.

  • Correction: Kashmir is not a Nation. Its just a state of India.

  • It's ok for the usa to sell arms to Taiwan…but not for Russia to sell arms to Cuba. Hmmmmmmmm

  • Secret fire nation invasion move? 🤔 America your move? America has military forces around the world for what reason again? In the name of freedom and world peace? China already secretly took over Australia. China also had their fingers around the Philippines. Such bold moves China is making kinda seems their government has an ace up its sleeve. WW3 looks promising, and China being friends with another powerhouse like Russia it's gonna be nasty. I love China and its people and their culture but a few bad apples always have to ruin it for everyone. Kids in China are being murdered and nobody is saying anything about that? Hey! What do I know absolutely nothing. Just talking out if my ass.~😘 Love you all, be kind and give back to mother nature.
