And last week, while the whole world is busy handling the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19, China announced that it has already established two new districts in the South China Sea as part of its move to fully control the disputed waters.

ASEAN neighbor Vietnam has filed its own diplomatic protest to express its rage against the expansive aspirations of China in the area.

The diplomatic protest came amid the China diplomacy moves in donating medical supplies in battling the coronavirus.

“I expect that no one else in the government will comment on it because they are not competent to do it,” said Locsin’s tweet.

“Only the President himself can reveal these notes of his alter ego the Secretary of Foreign Affairs and rule thereon,” it said.

Currently, China is involved with a stand off with the Malaysians , which also have the US and the Australian Navy ships also in the area.
