Malacanang: PH steps up presence in West Philippine Sea (WPS)


The Philippines is doing the best the way it can despite being in the transition of modernizing its fleet.

The latest massing of Chinese ships in the West Philippine Sea has made the country do what it can despite its limited resources.

The country has stepped up its presence in the West Philippine Sea( WPS) amid the Chinese incursions in the country’s Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ’s)

“The presence of Philippine maritime security and law enforcement forces have been stepped up in the municipality of Kalayaan to protect Filipino fishermen and the marine resources,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press statement.

The statement was given at the same time the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) filed two diplomatic notes against China after 200 Chinese vessels were spotted in the Julian Felipe Reef on April 11.

The 1st diplomatic protest counts as the daily protest as long as there are Chinese ships in and around Julian Felipe Reef and the 2nd is on the dispersal of Chinese vessels to other parts of Philippine maritime zones.

Apart from the filing of diplomatic protests, the DFA also summoned Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian over the current situation in Julian Felipe Reef, Roque said.

As per Maxdefense, the Philippines now has 2 Coast Guard, 4 Navy, and 2 Bureau of Fisheries ships in the area near Julian Felipe Reef.
