The said island is both being claimed by China and Vietnam.

Upon the knowledge of such military exercise, Locsin said they “do not impinge on Philippine territory.”
“Should the exercises spill over to Philippine territory then China is forewarned that it will be met with the severest response, diplomatic and whatever else is appropriate,” Locsin said.
