China wants ruling left out of PH talks
MetadataShow full item record
China will not resume negotiations with the Philippines over their territorial dispute in the South China Sea if the discussions are based on the ruling of an arbitral tribunal in the Hague, the official China daily said Monday, quoting unnamed sources. The sources also said Beijing is ready to start negotiations on issues such as joint development and cooperation in scientific research if the new government puts the tribunal's ruling aside before returning to the table for talks. China has refused to take part in the arbitral proceedings partly because the case involves sovereignty and maritime delimitation, which it declared in 2006 are issues that are not subject to any third-party arbitration.
