China not ceding joint WPS search
MetadataShow full item record
China will await the incoming administration’s policy regarding joint oil and gas projects in the West Philippine Sea (WPS) after Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy “Boy” Locsin Jr. said the Duterte administration had terminated all negotiations. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said China will “strive to take early substantive steps so as to deliver tangible benefits to both countries and peoples.” “Joint offshore oil and gas development is the right way for China and the Philippines to manage maritime differences and achieve win-win results without prejudicing either side’s maritime positions and claims,” Wang said.
