Foreign powers enforcing ruling on SCS
MetadataShow full item record
Acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio disputed yesterday Malacañang's claim that "no power on earth" can enforce an international arbitral court's ruling invalidating China's massive claim in the South China Sea and West Philippine Sea. Speaking at first general assembly and forum of the Akademyang Filipino at the University of the Philippines Professional Schools in Taguig City, Carpio said navies of the US, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, India and Japan have been conducting freedom of navigation operations (FONOPs) in the South China Sea and West Philippine Sea since the 2016 ruling by an arbitral tribunal based in The Hague invalidated China's massive nine-dash line claim. The same ruling reaffirmed the Philippines’ own maritime entitlements.
