China says it has Sovereignty Over Spratlys/Scaborough asks the PH to respect it


China is making it appear we are the ones who are disturbing the peace and stability in the Region.

It might be recalled that the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) conducted maritime exercises in the West Philippine Sea (WPS).

“China enjoys sovereignty over Nansha (Spratly) Islands including Zhongye (Pag-asa) Island and Zhongsha Islands including Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal) and their adjacent waters, and exercises jurisdiction in relevant waters,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said during the  April 26 press briefing.

“We urge the relevant side to respect China’s sovereignty and rights and interests, and stop actions complicating the situation and escalating disputes,” he added.

According to the PCG, the BRP Gabriela Silang (OPV-8301) and BRP Sindangan (MRRV-4407) started their maritime exercises near the Bajo De Masinloc on April 24, while the BRP Cabra (MRRV-4409), BRP Malapascua (MRRV-4403) and PCG-manned BFAR vessels commenced their ship interoperability training near the Pag-asa Island last week.

“We are supporting the whole-of-nation approach in securing our maritime jurisdiction, especially the efforts of the National Task Force for the West Philippine Sea (NTF-WPS) to undertake maritime security, maritime safety, maritime law enforcement, maritime search and rescue, and marine environmental protection roles in our country’s waters,” PCG spokesperson Commodore Armando Balilo said.
