PH doubts Asean, China can craft legally binding sea code
MetadataShow full item record
New Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin, Jr said on Monday that the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) and China would unlikely be able to arrive at a legally binding code of conduct for the South China Sea. Asean and China this year started formal negotiations for a code of conduct to ease tensions brought by conflicting claims over a strategic waterway where about $3 trillion worth of sea-borne good passes every year. "Perhaps we will not be able to arrive at a legally binding code of conduct," Locsin told a news conference in southern Davao City after holding talks with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi.
