'PH a willing victim of China in sea dispute’
MetadataShow full item record
Two years after winning an international arbitral court ruling against China, the Philippines has become a “willing victim” of the Asian behemoth in the South China Sea disputes, former Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said on Thursday. “The Philippines has had two years to take advantage of its position to develop and obtain the support of many countries whose principles are aligned with our own and with whom our own voice could be magnified. Sadly, however, this was not made to happen,” Del Rosario said at a forum organized by the research group Stratbase ADR Institute at Manila Polo Club in Makati City to mark the second anniversary of the ruling.
