MetadataShow full item record
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro L. Locsin Jr., who said on Sunday the UN arbitral award favoring the Philippine position in the South China Sea is “nonnegotiable,” held a “frank but cordial” virtual discussion on Tuesday with Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi. The video call, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), was made starting at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and lasted one hour. Journalists requested the DFA to provide a more substantial context of the discussion, as they wanted to find out how the Chinese envoy reacted to Locsin’s strong statement, but the response was in broad terms.
