Philippine Navy sends first patrol ship to West Philippine Sea anew -beg China to respect its sovereign territory

26 comments

China asked United States of America to respect its national interest in Asia; the Philippines asked China to respect its sovereign territory and it's 370 Kilometers from its coast or 200 Nautical Miles (NM) Exclusive Economic Zone as grants from UNCLOS: US will respect china's interest.

As published in the Business World Online Thursday, The Philippine Government once again calls for China to respect the "territorial sovereignty" and the exclusive economic zone after the former sent its first patrol ship to the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a statement on Friday.

"The Philippines strongly objects to the Chinese patrol of Philippine maritime domain in the WPS [West Philippine Sea]," DFA Assistant Secretary and Spokesman Raul S. Hernandez said in a text message to reporters.

"Such patrol will not validate the 9-dash lines [China's claim] and is contrary to China's obligation under international law including UNCLOS [United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea]," Mr. Hernandez added.

The government reacted to the reports that a patrol ship was sent from China in the disputed areas in the West Philippines Sea.

The dispute between the Philippines and China escalated after the Scarborough Shoal issue. Other countries such as Malaysia and Taiwan claim ownership of parts of the disputed seas. (read further in the Business World Online)

Philippines objections to new Chinese gunboat in the Spratly

MSN News also published that the  Philippines on Friday said it "strongly objects" to China's deployment of a new patrol vessel in the South China Sea, where the two countries have a seething maritime territorial dispute.

Such patrols will not boost China's claim to the disputed territory where the two countries have had a standoff since April, Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman Raul Hernandez said in a statement.

"The Philippines strongly objects to the Chinese patrol of Philippine maritime domain in the West Philippine Sea," the statement said, using the local name for the South China Sea.

It called on China to respect the country's "territorial sovereignty and EEZ", referring to the Philippines' 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic zone.

China's official Xinhua news agency said on Thursday an ocean-going patrol vessel equipped with a helipad would be deployed to the South China Sea, the first of its kind in the area.

In late November, China said it had granted its border patrol police the right to board and turn away foreign ships entering the disputed waters, raising fears of a confrontation.

Both the Philippines and China have overlapping claims over parts of the South China Sea, a major shipping route that is also believed to hold vast mineral resources.

Tensions between China and the Philippines have risen in the area since April after ships from both countries had a standoff over a rock outcropping known as the Scarborough Shoal.

While the Philippines has withdrawn its ships, it says China reneged on an agreement to pull out its own vessels.

China claims the shoal as well as nearly all of the South China Sea, even waters close to the coasts of neighbouring countries. The Philippines says the shoal is well within its EEZ. (read further in MSN News)

    We need to acquire Arleigh Burke Destroyer - at least 4 units, 10 units of ASW helicopters, 2 units of Poseidon P-8A, 2 units of ED2, 12 units of F-35C, 24 units of Iron Dome short and long range anti missile(from Israel), 300,000 highly trained army, military, navy, air force personnel, super highly sophisticated radar system and super highly sophisticated communication war rooms.

    With these minimum defense capabilities, i am sure China will think even many times before they sail on the Philippines EEZ.

    Bubuhayin nila ang mga Mainland China at iyong revenue ng mga ibebenta sa kanila gagamitin naman ng mga Chinese to bully the Philippines.

    Naku naku huwag na tayong sumakay sa mga airplanes ng Philipine Airlines and let us not buy condo units by Eton - owner niyan itong dalawang tsekwa na ito.

    In dealing with the leaders of Mainland China, the Philippine must be wiser and should not believe with their leaders. Their leaders will always test the water, they will always try to be creepy if we allow them to be creepy.

    When we deal with China, we have to be tough. What did our government do with illegal shipment of billions of gold from the Philippines to Hongkong.

    What did we do with illegal druglords caught in the Philippines. We simply sent them back to China. Crazy Filipino leaders - be tough!
