MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines will urge all claimant countries to isolate China by declaring their own claims in the South China Sea as protected areas to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, an official said Friday. Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio said Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and even Indonesia could declare portions of their islands as protected areas before the Unclos to prevent China from exploiting the contested South China Sea. “We will declare our marine protected area, Vietnam will also declare, Malaysia will declare, Indonesia will declare and then China becomes isolated,” Carpio said in a recent forum.
