Is new Philippine isle in Chinese hands?
MetadataShow full item record
Sandy Cay is a newly formed isle from sandbars three nautical miles off Pag-Asa, the main part of Palawan’s Kalayaan town. A word war rages between Alejano and Cayetano over China’s reported grab of the isle under the Duterte presidency. Cayetano says he will resign if anybody can prove that the admin has lost territory to China. Alejano, an ex-Marine captain, cites Sandy Cay as example of territorial surrender.
