'We're not seeking trouble,' Chinese Amb. to the PH says amid S. China Sea tensions

Amidst the different reports against the Chinese wrongdoings in the Philippines, Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Zhao Jianhua said “China is not seeking trouble” for the unresolved and different disputes with respect to the South China Sea (SCS) or West Philippine Sea (WPS) to the Philippines.

Zhao downplays the sightings of Chinese research vessels and the passage of Chinese warships in Philippine waters.

Tensions are high again after reports reached the govt officials that Chinese survey ships have been spotted inside the Philippine waters.

“There are a lot of ships that [are] navigating in the South China Sea. Within military, I think each one of the ships, particularly Navy ships, deserves careful observation. Not only the Chinese and the Philippines know but also everyone,” Zhao said on the sidelines of an event at the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
“One thing that I would like to assure the Filipino government and the Filipino people: it is our determination to seek final peaceful solution to the differences we have. We’re not seeking conflict, we’re not seeking trouble. That’s for sure,” he added.
Despite different issues are cropping up Ambassador Zhao still believes that Manila and Beijing diplomatic ties remain on solid ground.

“China will continue to be a good friend, a good neighbor and close relatives of the Filipino people,” he said.
“The differences over South China Sea only constitutes one percent over overall relationships,” he added.
