DU30 to raise sea ruling with China
MetadataShow full item record
President Duterte on Sunday said there would be no bargaining of territory in his talks with China’s leaders this week, allaying fears that the Philippines may lose some of the gains it has earned in the international tribunal ruling over disputed areas in the West Philippine Sea. Mr. Duterte acknowledged some concerns in the Philippines that his rapid moves to forge close ties with China could affect the country's maritime sovereignty, but he said that would not happen. The award by the UN-backed Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague dealt a blow toChina's extensive claims in the South China Sea. China has refused to recognize the case.
