MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines submitted last Monday to a United Nations tribunal supplemental evidence for its arbitration case against China over disputed territories in the South China Sea, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said on Tuesday. The submission, which came to more than 3,000 pages, also mentioned China’s continued and massive reclamation activities in the areas claimed by the Philippines, though not in very great detail, said DFA spokesman Charles Jose. China has refused to take part in the tribunal's proceedings but has come out with a position paper stating that the UN arbitration body had no jurisdiction over the Philippine case.
