In this paper authors analyze sensitive nature of the existing disputesin the South China Sea. In spite of the fact that disputed territories overwhelmingly are uninhabited, each of the involved state, China, Vietnam and Philippines, claim their sovereignty, based on its own national history. In the back of these disputes is the battle for gaining the influence in the most frequent world sea, as well the battle for significant natural resources of oil and natural gas. It seems that the wealth of this area attracts the USA as well, because they are interest in securing its position as a pivot state in this region. Still, there is one obstacle which interferes to realization of such plan – China.
