Carpio sees Phl sovereignty safeguards in MOU with China
MetadataShow full item record
There is nothing wrong with the government's pursuit of joint exploration of natural resources with China in the West Philippine Sea, acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio said yesterday. Carpio believes that the memorandum of understanding (MOU) forged by the two governments during the state visit of Chinese President XI Jinping in the country last week had safeguards to ensure that the sovereignty of the Philippines would not be compromised. However, Carpio also warned that the country should brace for the possibility of China seizing the resource-rich West Philippine Sea as its forces continue to assert control over the disputed waters.
