PH mulls fisheries deal with Taiwan
MetadataShow full item record
The government is studying a draft fisheries agreement with Taiwan as tensions in rich border fishing grounds reemerged two years after the Filipino coast guard shot dead a Taiwanese fisherman. While the proposed deal will not define birders, it will set protocols on the arrest and detention of fishermen, Philippine Foreign Affairs spokesperson Charles Jose said. Fisheries-related scrapes between the two Asian neighbors have heated up in recent months.
