PH, Vietnam navies play sports on South China Sea Island.
Philippine and Vietnamese navies have been playing soccer, volleyball and tug-of-war games together on South China Sea Island, the latest get-together by two countries concerned with Chinese assertiveness in the disputed waters. The two sides played in mixed teams on Thursday on Southwest Cay in the Spratly archipelago, the Philippine navy said. That was the third event of its kind since 2014 on an island held four decades ago by the Philippines, but now under Vietnamese control.
