MetadataShow full item record
For National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon, “it is a win-win” for both the Philippines and China. “But this is not to say that we have dropped our claim,” Esperon said on Monday, referring to Panatag Shoal, a rich fishing ground off the coast of Zambales province that China seized from the Philippines in 2012 but reopened to Filipino fishermen last week after a visit to Beijing by President Duterte. Esperon said the Philippines and China had reached a “friendly” understanding allowing Filipinos to fish around Panatag, internationally known as Scarborough Shoal, during Mr. Duterte’s visit.
