Fishery deal a chance to solve sea row–Angara
MetadataShow full item record
Pursuing joint fishery agreements with China is a “window of opportunity” for peacefully resolving the Philippines’ dispute with its increasingly powerful neighbor over territories in the West Philippine Sea. This is part of the key policy recommendations and “salient, actionable proposals” that international law experts and scholars will be submitting to President Benigno Aquino III, according to former Sen. Edgardo Angara. The experts met in Manila last month for a two-day forum and roundtable discussion on “promoting cooperation and resolving crises in Asian territorial maritime disputes.”
