The Philippines and China should exercise “restraint and caution” to prevent an escalation of the tension in the South China Sea, President Duterte declared during his recent meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The President pushed for peace and stability in the disputed waters after raising the Philippines’ concerns on the West Philippine Sea when he met behind closed doors with Xi at the Great Hall of the People last Thursday. “President Duterte reiterated to President Xi his resolve to endeavour to make the South China Sea a sea of peace, stability and prosperity,” Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said.
