Lorenzana hits China's nukes WPS
MetadataShow full item record
Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has objected to China’s transport of “nuclear elements” to the contested area at the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), as reported by the US defense and military establishment. “We definitely object to that because they (China) should not be bringing any nuclear [elements] in the disputed area,” Lorenzana told reporters at Pier 13, Manila after the arrival ceremony for the Philippine Navy contingent from Hawaii on Monday. The Pentagon had raised alarm over Beijing’s plans to establish floating nuclear power plants on the hotly contested islands and reefs in South China Sea, in a report to the US Congress.
