'Multilateral approach needed vs China tactics'
MetadataShow full item record
The government should now consider a “multilateral approach” to dealing with China’s “bullying” at sea, underlined on Sunday by the sinking of a Filipino fishing boat by a Chinese vessel, which hurriedly sailed away without helping the fishermen. Former foreign affairs chief Albert del Rosario made the proposal the other night as he called on the Duterte administration to hold China’s leadership accountable for the sinking of F/B Gimver 1. “What is obvious is that Goliath, the neighborhood bully, will continue to rear its ugly head to intimidate our poor fishermen. We need to find a way to hold China’s leadership accountable,” Del Rosario said in a statement.
