No monitoring station on Panatag - Beijing
MetadataShow full item record
China is not building an environmental monitoring station on Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal, its foreign ministry said yesterday, apparently denying remarks made by a local official last week. Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said reports about the facility on Scarborough Shoal had been checked and were found to be false. Hua’s statement came almost simultaneously with Manila’s announcement that it was seeking clarification from Beijing on reports on the planned building of monitoring facilities on the shoal.
