Carpio book on sea row challenges China
MetadataShow full item record
Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio has launched a book that says China’s claims to virtually the entire South China Sea are baseless and said he would make an electronic copy in Mandarin available on the internet so it could be accessible to the Chinese people. Carpio said public opinion, including in China, could pressure Beijing to comply with last year’s arbitral ruling that invalidated China’s historic claims in favor of the Philippines based on the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. With Carpio’s help, Manila filed a case challenging Beijing’s nine-dash-line claim in the South China Sea at the International Arbitral Tribunal in The Hague. Beijing refuses to accept the ruling and continues to develop seven artificial islands in the Spratlys archipelago.
