MetadataShow full item record
Malacañang need no more wait to acquire technology to verify and protest China’s violation of the Philippines’ sovereignty in the Spratly archipelago. Satellite imagery has shown the first confirmed landing by China of a military aircraft on Zamora Reef in the Spratlys, the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (Amti) at the think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington said on Thursday. Amti published the pictures, taken on April 28, on its website showing a Shaanxi Y-8 military plane on Zamora Reef (internationally known as Subi Reef), one of seven Philippine-claimed features in the Spratlys that China has seized and transformed into artificial islands from which to project its military might in the South China Sea.
