MetadataShow full item record
China’s construction activities in the West Philippine Sea are a violation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), Malacañang said yesterday. Speaking to reporters, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said the Philippines has gone to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea to protect its maritime entitlements. DND spokesman Peter Galvez said he has seen photographs of mall-like structures being built in Burgos (Gaven) and Calderon (Cuarteron) Reefs located within the Philippines’ 200-nautical mile exclusive economic zone.
