PH taking action on China - Cayetano
MetadataShow full item record
Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano gave assurances that the government is taking all necessary diplomatic actions in responding to China’s actions in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea). “We are taking diplomatic actions. Just because we are not announcing that we have filed a diplomatic protest, or note verbale does not mean that we are not doing something,” Cayetano said in a radio interview on Sunday. He said the objective of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration is the same as the goal of the previous administration—to protect the Philippines’ sovereign and economic rights.
