Palace still waiting for US stance on sea row

It’s still wait-and-see for the Duterte administration as far as the US position on the South China Sea issue is concerned, Malacañang said yesterday. Until it is made into a policy, a pronouncement from the White House – under new President Donald Trump – that it would stop the Chinese from claiming areas in international waters will not merit a reaction from the Duterte administration, presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said yesterday. President Duterte voiced the same position on a similar statement about the South China Sea from new US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former CEO of oil giant ExxonMobil.
