MetadataShow full item record
Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said on China’s plan to deploy nuclear weapons in South China Sea, also known as the West Philippine Sea, a dispute territory among China, Philippines and at least three other Southeast Asian countries. “Well we definitely object to that, mag-object tayo diyan dahil hindi dapat sila magdala ng nuclear weapons diyan sa disputed area. For what? Wala naman tayong kuwan sa kanila, wala naman tayong masamang balak sa kanila, wala naman tayong balak na atakihin ‘yung mga reclaimed areas nila.” The Defense chief territorial disputes over the South China Sea should be discussed in a “civil” way through the Department of Foreign Affairs and its Chinese counterparts.
