Muntinlupa City Rep. Ruffy Biazon on Thursday asked the House of Representatives to investigate China’s deployment of antiship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three Philippine reefs in the Spratly archipelago. “This deployment of military assets no doubt [has] national security implications on the Philippines, a matter that should be taken seriously as a threat,” Biazon, vice chair of the House committee on national defense and security, said in a statement. US news network CNBC last week reported that China deployed the missiles on Kagitingan, Panganiban and Zamora reefs, which it had seized and transformed into artificial islands with runways and military installations.
