Gov’t mulls bringing 2016 arbitral ruling to UN
MetadataShow full item record
Malacañang on Tuesday said the government is considering the United Nations (UN) General Assembly as an option to enforce the 2016 ruling by The Hague’s Permanent Court of Arbitration on the Philippines’ sovereign rights over the West Philippine Sea. Former foreign affairs secretary Albert F. del Rosario and former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales have filed recently a communication to the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Chinese President Xi Jinping and other officials over the harassment of Filipino fishermen in the West Philippine Sea. Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Zhao Jianhua has said it “was not a proper action that is based on facts.”
