MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines will not lose even a “single inch” of territory to China if ever it proceeds with its joint exploration deal with the Asian giant, which is claiming almost the entire South China Sea. Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano gave the assurance in a press briefing yesterday, saying any agreement would be in conformity with the Constitution and laws of the Philippines.
