MetadataShow full item record
At least 87 percent of Filipinos want the Philippines to regain control of the West Philippine Sea or the South China Sea being occupied by China, according to the latest survey by the Social Weather Stations. The Philippines claims parts of the South China Sea within its exclusive economic zone and calls it the West Philippine Sea. According to the survey, of the 87 percent, 69 percent said regaining control was “very important” while the remaining 18 percent believed it was “somewhat important” that Philippine government must assert claims on the disputed region and islands.
