Coast guard to conduct patrols in Phl Rise
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) will send a patrol vessel to the Philippine Rise to keep intruders at bay, in compliance with President Duterte’s order that unauthorized foreign vessels be barred from the 13-million- hectare, resource-rich eastern waters. PCG commandant Rear Admiral Elson Hermogino said the patrol would be done in coordination with the Philippine Navy. The President’s order came after Chinese ship Ke Xue Hao completed its “scientific research” in the vast Philippine Rise off Aurora.
