Malacañang has opted to say little for now about China’s recent activities in the South China Sea, including its erection of a monument on Kagitingan Reef and landing military planes on another reef within the Philippines’ territory in the strategic waterway. Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a television interview on Wednesday that the Department of Foreign Affairs was studying diplomatic actions it could take regarding China’s construction of the monument and its landing of Xian Y-7 military transport planes on Panganiban Reef, which is located within the Philippines’ 370-kilometer exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the South China Sea known as West Philippine Sea.
