Change the name “South China Sea” to “Southeast Asia Sea”

In the sixteenth century, the world had little knowledge about Southeast Asia. Western merchants and sailors of that time called the sea, which is encompassed by the present-day Southeast Asian countries, the “South China Sea” to refer to the enclosed sea basin and its location in relation to the surrounding countries lying to the north of Australia, east of India, and south of China. http://www.change.org/petitions/change-the-name-south-china-sea-to-southeast-asia-sea
