Philippines expresses concern about China ships moored at reef
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine government said it was concerned that more than 200 Chinese militia vessels had been moored at a Philippine-claimed reef in the South China Sea. The Chinese vessels massed at Whitsun Reef showed no actual fishing activities and had their full white lights turned on during night time, a national task force overseeing border disputes with Beijing said in a statement at the weekend, citing the Philippine Coast Guard. The task force “notes this circumstance as a concern due to the possible overfishing and destruction of the marine environment, as well as risks to safety of navigation,” it said.
