Phl reviews laws on fishery cooperation with Taiwan
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine government is in the process of reviewing a facilitated mechanism on law enforcement cooperation on fisheries with Taiwan, although there are no proposals to delimit overlapping maritime zones, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said yesterday. Foreign Affairs spokesman Charles Jose said the facilitated mechanism will provide guidelines for Philippine and Taiwanese law enforcement officials in addressing incidents at sea. “For this fisheries agreement, they’re setting procedure on how to deal with arrest of fishermen, detention and how to handle (similar) cases. There’s no maritime delimitation here, only how to manage illegal fishing,” Jose said in a briefing.
