Noy: World is watching China sea row
MetadataShow full item record
President Aquino told an Asian-Pacific summit yesterday that "the world is watching" whether China would behave as a responsible power in the simmering standoff over maritime territory. Aquino kept up a drumbeat of growing criticism of China's expansion of tiny atolls into fully fledged islands, as leaders including Chinese Premier Li Keqiang met in Malaysia. The issue has increasingly loomed over the regional diplomatic and security outlook, with China accused of upsetting the status quo by moving to enhance its presence in the South China Sea.
