DFA chief wants gov't to ‘put aside’ claim on West PH Sea
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines is willing to “put aside” its sovereign rights over the West Philippine Sea as it eyes a possible “60-40” joint development with China along the disputed waters, Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said Tuesday night. He told a news conference the Philippines needed to come to an understanding just like the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea. “We have to put aside our territorial and sovereign rights claims but not abandon them,” Cayetano said, adding “the preliminary agreement is based on, let’s cooperate first, and let’s talk about who owns what, who has jurisdiction, later on.”
