Phl seeks multilateral approach to China missiles
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines is seeking a multilateral approach, including the involvement of the United States and other western powers, in confronting the worsening security situation in the South China Sea following China’s deployment of missiles on artificial islands in the disputed waters, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said yesterday. Cayetano also strongly disputed criticisms that the Duterte administration was not doing enough to protest the deployment of anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on Fiery Cross (Kagitingan), Subi (Zamora) and Mischief (Panganiban) reefs in the last few weeks.
