China: Reclamation almost done
MetadataShow full item record
Despite calls by the united states and the Philippines for China to stop its reclamation activities in the disputed West Philippine Sea, Beijing announced that it is about to complete some of its land reclamation in the Spratly Islands. "We'll wait to get official confirmation first," DFA spokesperson Charles Jose said in a text message after the Chinese Foreign Ministry made the announcement in Beijing. But the DFA had repeatedly said, "China's massive reclamation activities are causing irreversible and widespread damage to the biodiversity and ecological balance of the South China Sea/ West Philippine Sea."
