Ruling over disputed sea handed down on Tuesday
MetadataShow full item record
The Permanent Court of Arbitration — the world’s oldest international arbitration tribunal—will issue a written decision at 11:00 a.m. (0900 GMT) after the Philippines challenged China’s claim over much of the strategic waterway. Manila lodged the suit against Beijing in 2013, saying after 17 years of negotiations it had exhausted all other political and diplomatic avenues. Angered by the move, Beijing refused to participate, adding it would not comply with the ruling by a tribunal with “no jurisdiction” over the issue.
