Titindi ang pananakop! Biazon expects more Chinese vessels in WPS with new law

0

China’s encroachment in Philippine waters and islands in the South China Sea will definitely get worse thanks to a new law passed in the Mainland.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon said a new law passed in Beijing would put Manila at a disadvantage, as it alllows Chinese Coast Guard to launch ammunition against foreign vessels while at sea. This is downright problematic and is a clear abuse of power, he added.

“I have no doubt in my mind that in spite of their rhetoric of friendship with the Philippines, they will not hesitate to threaten Philippine vessels even within our EEZ,” the politiko said.

Beware!
