MetadataShow full item record
Filipinos may soon gain back access to the traditional fishing grounds in the disputed South China Sea but with certain limitations following his meeting with the leaders of China, President Duterte announced on Sunday. The President shared the imminent breakthrough about the fishing rights of Filipinos fishermen even as the Philippines and China refused to back down on their respective territorial claims in the South China Sea. Duterte said it was imperative to protect the country's rich marine resources since Filipinos heavily rely on them for sustenance.
