MetadataShow full item record
China’s “unbridled reclamation activity” in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) worsens an already sensitive geopolitical situation and raises the specter of increasing militarization in the region. Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Evan P. Garcia declared this at the 17th Association of Southeast Asian Nations ( ASEAN)- India Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) held recently in New Delhi as he called anew on the international community to press for a cessation of massive reclamation activities in the South China Sea. According to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), concerns regarding recent developments in the South China Sea were discussed at the meeting between ranking officials from ASEAN member countries and India, led by Indian Minister of External Affairs Anil Wadha.
