As Hanslune has noted, there are many wrecks in the waters off China. Many which may also not be Chinese Vessels.
Look to today, as evidence supports the notion these waters did prove to be difficult to navigate, due to Hurricanes alone. (sorry Typhoons
And think of the Trade of various periods. Ming Vases could be strewn in holds of vessels.
Now, who is best suited to claim them, but China itself.
I get the concerns noted, since these people are quite sly in doing things and have garnered a reputation that is merited to apply, but they have also
led in the field of Archaeology, and the study of Dinosaurs, as an example. The finds presented to mankind as a whole have been amazing.
Then their Ancient Past is also being presented in a stunning fashion, such as the Clay Army they are still uncovering.
As for Oil exploration in the Arctic, I kind of find that humorous. Think about it.
pause for effect
A People with a standing army of 200 Million Men which can Mobilize almost immediately, really doesn't need to invest in exploration and the
infrastructure when they can simply march into the Middle East and take it over in mere days. Taadaa, Oil a plenty at no cost to them.
P.S. Pure speculation on my part, but more sense than developing Esso's Oil Fields in the Arctic.
