MetadataShow full item record
Rep. Gloria Arroyo (Lakas-CMD, Pampanga) yesterday said China’s island-building in the West Philippine Sea or South China Sea (SCS) did not happen during her administration but during the time of her successor, Benigno S. Aquino III. Arroyo made the statement as security officials said they were checking reports that Chinese Coast Guard personnel harassed Filipino fishermen at the Union Bank (Pagkakaisa Bank) in the West Philippine Sea few days ago. Union Bank is inside the Philippines' 200-mile exclusive economic zone and near the Gaven Reef which the Chinese subjected to land reclamation.
