Barbie Movie Nine Dash Line Philippines
Coming soon is the new Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. However, Tuoi Tre, a state-run daily in Vietnam, reports that the film’s release has been prohibited. We do not provide a license for the American picture ‘Barbie’ to be released in Vietnam because it contains the objectionable image of the nine-dash line, according to the head of the Department of Cinema, a government organization in charge of licensing and regulating foreign films. Vietnam’s reaction to how the South China Sea was portrayed in the Barbie movie demonstrates how delicate these issues are in South East Asia, particularly in Vietnam.
There has always been conflict in the South China Sea. In 1974 and 1988, China and Vietnam fought each other militarily over the Paracel and Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. Those disputes included the ownership of land, but more recently, attention has been drawn to disputes over the continental shelf and economic zones, two seabed regions that extend at least 200 nautical miles from the shore. China has supported the so-called nine-dash line in the South China Sea since the late 1940s. Nine dashes make up the line, commonly known as the “U-shaped line” or “cow’s tongue.”
According to several official and unofficial Chinese maps, the line encircles the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea and extends from China’s Hainan Island to nearly the Vietnamese coast. The line turns and travels to the west of the Philippines until coming to an end just south of Taiwan, north of Borneo, close to the beaches of Malaysia and Brunei. The exact scope of the line’s purported coverage has long been a source of speculation. China has been tenacious in attempting to advance the claim but has never been really clear about what exactly the claim comprises.
