The Chinese navy has reportedly transformed Jackson Atoll into a “parking space” for its ships deployed for operations in the disputed South China Sea. “About Pag-asa, the Chinese are moving closer to the island while at the same time, they have already plenty of ships on standby in and around Jackson Atoll,” the source said. Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano also bared that China has occupied Sandy Cay, a sand bar four nautical miles from Pag-asa Island, home of Palawan’s fifth class municipality with around 200 to 300 civilian population.
