The Duterte administration remains steadfast in fighting for the country’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said on the first anniversary of the Philippines’ historic win in the arbitral tribunal in its territorial dispute with China. In a statement on Wednesday, Cayetano stressed that the Philippines would pursue its claims by fostering good relations with its neighbors. “The Philippines shall remain an enemy to none and a friend to all in its pursuit of economic and political benefits for the country, including the long-term security and stability in the region,” he said.
