MetadataShow full item record
Senators on Friday called on the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to file a diplomatic protest against China following a recent incident in which the Chinese Coast Guard blocked a Filipino TV news crew from filming in Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal. The Chinese patrol claimed the Filipinos were encroaching on the “sea area of the People’s Republic of China.” “Those are clearly acts of aggression,” opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV said of the incident in a text message. “The DFA must file a diplomatic protest about the matter.”
