Du30 open to sea exploration with China, Vietnam
MetadataShow full item record
President Rodrigo Duterte said Tuesday he was open to exploring the South China Sea’s natural resources with rival claimants China and Vietnam, after securing a “windfall” while in Beijing. Duterte also emphasized he had no immediate plans to pressure China over an international tribunal’s ruling last year that its sweeping claims to most of the sea were unlawful. He emphasized, however, that the deal would have to be “fair and balanced.”
