local.seafdecaqd.extractThe Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Monday slammed China on its massive reclamation activities in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) that it said have caused ecological damage to some 300 acres of coral reef systems in the sea. Charles Jose, Foreign Affairs spokesman, said in a news briefing the ecological destruction in the regional waters can result in an estimated $100 million annual economic loss to coastal states. Chinese reclamation activities, according to Jose, should not distract the government from real issues in the region, which are China's nine-dash-line claim and its "unilateral and aggressive behavior in asserting that claim."en
