A geospatial intelligence firm on Thursday revealed that some 200 Chinese ships are still moored in the West Philippine Sea as the Philippine Coast Guard announced it will hold the second leg of its joint maritime exercise with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources next week. “It will be held again in the West Philippine Sea,” the PCG said in a message to reporters. In an interview with CNN Philippines, Coast Guard spokesman Commodore Armando Balilo said they are in the process of enlisting 4,000 more personnel to beef up its monitoring capabilities.
