Pres. BBM pushes joint exploration of West PH Sea


Former President Rodrigo Roa Duterte terminated any ideas of joint exploration of the West Philippine Sea with China.


A change in the administration, successor President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is now open to such an idea.


In a speaking engagement the President was quoted saying that oil exploration is a "small thing" for China but something significant for the Philippines.

"We'll have to find a way kasi kailangan na natin eh (we really need it now). We already need, kung mahanap dyan kailangan na talaga ng Pilipinas (whatever resources we could find because the Philippines really need that now)," Marcos said.

The President said the constitutional problems delaying the joint exploration must be resolved.

"Kasi kini-claim ng China kanila 'yun, eh atin naman talaga iyan. So, sinasabi ng Pilipinas, basta't 'yung batas kailangan masundan 'yung sa Pinas (China is claiming the [South China Sea] as its property, but it's ours. For the Philippines' part, we have to follow the law)," he said.

"Ang sinasabi naman ng Chinese, hindi, amin iyan eh, kaya't kailangan masundan is Chinese. Kaya 'yun talaga ang roadblock doon (The Chinese are saying that they own that, and they want their own terms to be followed. That's the roadblock there)," he said.
