PH draws ire of Beijing over Spratlys
MetadataShow full item record
Southeast Asian leaders edged closer to open criticism of China's land reclamation in the disputed South China Sea at a regional summit on Monday, as the Philippines drew the ire of Beijing which called its objections to the work "unreasonable." The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Summit in Kuala Lumpur, which was supposed to showcase the 10-member bloc's progress towards economic integration, was overshadowed by the long-running maritime territorial dispute. In 2012, host Cambodia's refusal to be drawn on China's actions in the South China Sea resulted in the customary end-of-summit communique not being issued for the first time in the bloc's 45-year history.
