An international tribunal has rejected and rebuffed many of mainland China's claims regarding exclusive sovereignty and rights in the disputed South China Sea.
 
The appointment of leading Brexit campaigners to her new government emphasizes Prime Minister Theresa May's commitment to pulling Britain out of the EU, despite her own reservations, analysts said Thursday.
