MetadataShow full item record
A retired Chinese general has called on Beijing to order an attack on Ayungin Shoal and arrest the Filipino Marines stationed aboard the grounded Philippine Navy vessel BRP Sierra Madre. Retired People's Liberation Army Maj. Gen Luo Yuan, in a commentary carried by local networking site Angmaaya.net, declared that is about time China fight back the Philippine invasion of its territory in the South China Sea. The shoal, located just 60 nautical miles from mainland Palawan, is also being claimed by China as part of its maritime domain under its questionable nine-dash line that overlaps territorial waters not only of the Philippines, but also those of Vietnam, Brunei and Malaysia.
