Beijing on Tuesday said it was allowing Filipinos to fish in Panatag Shoal in the West Philippine Sea "out of goodwill." China's foreign ministry made the statement on Monday after a GMA 7 television report last week showed a cellphone video of Chinese coast guard seizing the catch of fishermen passing by Panatag shoal, located only 124 nautical miles off Zambales province. "China has made appropriate arrangement for the Philippine fishermen to fish in relevant waters out of goodwill. This policy remains unchanged," Beijing's foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said in a press briefing.
