Your move, China: After winning an arbitration case against China, the Philippine government is now looking to Beijing to make the first move in reviving talks to resolve the South China Sea dispute. "We would hope that China will make the first move in so far as making that discussion of substantive matters on our dispute in the South China Sea first and as soon as possible," Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay said in an interview on ABS-CBN's "Umagang Kay Ganda." Yasay said President Duterte, in his state visit to Beijing last week, has stressed before Chinese leaders that he will abide by the waterway, even as he seeks stronger economic ties with the Asian giant.
