DU30: back to Panatag
MetadataShow full item record
President Duterte on Sunday raised the possibility of Filipino fishermen returning to the disputed Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea after his three-day state visit to China. Speaking before residents of typhoon-hit Cagayan and Isabela provinces, Mr. Duterte said he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had cordial discussions about the maritime dispute, and agreed to further talks. But Mr. Duterte was unsure if China would lift its blockade of the rich fishing ground known to Filipinos as Panatag Shoal. China would consider giving Filipino fishermen conditional access to disputed waters in the South China Sea after the talks between the two leaders in Beijing, Chinese sources said.
