The Philippines’ ambassador to China on Wednesday rejected concerns that the Duterte administration’s decision to shelve the arbitral ruling won over China a year ago would compromise the country’s claims in the West Philippine Sea. Ambassador Jose Sta. Romana insisted the Philippines did “not lose an inch of territory” to China and that the Chinese government had given assurance that it would not reclaim and build on Panatag Shoal, a rich fishing ground off the coast of Zambales province known internationally as Scarborough Shoal.
