Possible fishery talks after dispute: Aquino
MetadataShow full item record
President Benigno S. C. Aquino III is open to discussions on a possible fishery cooperation with neighbors but only after an ongoing dispute with Taiwan is resolved. Mr. Aquino said he wants to defuse the tension with Taipei after a Taiwanese fisherman was killed by the Philippine Coast guard two weeks ago for allegedly poaching in Philippines waters. Let us first finish this current issue, there are ongoing dialogues. We have asked a study on the fisheries and our limitations, he said on the sidelines of the Philippine Navy anniversary in Cavite province yesterday.
