MetadataShow full item record
A Manila-based independent think tank called on the Duterte administration yesterday to rethink its policy on the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) issue following China’s recent installation of anti-ship missiles and surface-to-air missiles on Philippine-claimed islands. “While Beijing’s militarization of the disputed waters has long been obvious, the latest development escalates the tensions in the region and presents a situation for the government to explore other ways of dealing with the increasingly volatile situation,” the Stratbase Albert del Rosario Institute (ADRI) said in a statement.
