PH cites 2016 Arbitral ruling as its contribution to maritime law and order, vows to deepen ties with EU
The Philippines’ Arbitral win in its maritime dispute in 2016 over China is the country’s contribution in boosting the legal order over the seas.
The United Kingdom (UK) has reaffirmed its support in upholding the 2016 arbitral ruling that favored the Philippines in its maritime dispute with China in the South China Sea.
President Duterte reiterated his stand that the 2016 The Hague ruling invalidating China’s claim in the West Philippine Sea will just be rejected by China calling it “meaningless” this time around.
President Duterte’s recent statements that China is already in possession of the West Philippine Sea (WPS) and that the arbitral award in 2016 was a “mere scrap of paper” showed that he is siding with China, Vice President Leni Robredo said on Sunday, May 9.
