‘Wag puro salita! Ruffy Biazon tells DND to back up anti-China talk with military action

0

Ruffy Biazon is not satisfied with the strong words issued by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana against Chinese ships refusing to leave the West Philippine Sea.

“The strong position taken by the SND communicated through statements directed toward China is a crossing of the Rubicon. It must be backed up with actions otherwise the Chinese will be emboldened to proceed with their plan to occupy more of PH EEZ regardless of what PH says,” the Muntinlupa congressman said.

For him, he wants aerial and even marine patrols to become a regular thing.

“The EEZ overflights recently done by the AFP where the pilot answered back to the Chinese challenge is an example of what can be regularly done to assert PH rights. It also aligns with the diplomatic protests the PH has been filing,” he added.
