MetadataShow full item record
This was unthinkable months back: Chinese coast guards, who used to drive away Filipino fishermen, share their food and cigarettes with Filipinos fishing at Panatag Shoal last week. Chinese Coast Guard vessels approached the boats of our fellow fishermen but only to share their food, liquor and cigarettes." said Wilson Almadin, 41, crew member of a fishing boat that returned to this town from Panatag on Monday. Almadin also said other Filipino fishermen shared some of their catch with the Chinese coast guards. According to Almadin, the Chinese appeared to prove that tensions at the shoal had eased up.
