Note verbale sent to China, says Yasay
MetadataShow full item record
Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. yesterday said the Philippines has filed sent diplomatic notes to China to seek clarification on several issues, including the installation of anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems at its man-made islands in the disputed South China Sea. Yasay said DFA decided to send the note verbale instead of a diplomatic protest because it is the appropriate action at this moment. Citing satellite images, the CSIS-AMTI said it appeared that China has installed large anti-aircraft guns and probable close-in weapon systems at Gaven, Hughes, Johnson, Cuarteron, Fiery Cross, Mischief, and Subi reefs.
