France , Germany , UK reject China's sweeping claims in South China Sea in joint note verbale

In a note verbale dated Sept. 16, the three nations said that “historic rights” over the South China Sea waters “do not comply” with international law and provisions of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).They invoked the 2016 arbitral award won by the Philippines against China, which issued the same ruling.

“France, Germany and the United Kingdom also highlight that claims with regard to the exercise of “historic rights” over the South China Sea waters do not comply with international law and UNCLOS provisions and recall that the arbitral award in the Philippines v. China case dating to 12 July 2016 clearly confirms this point,” the joint note verbale stated. 

Reaffirming their legal positions as state parties to the UNCLOS, the three nations also said that all maritime claims in the South China Sea “should be made and peacefully resolved in accordance with the principles and rules of UNCLOS, and the means and procedures for the settlement of disputes provided for in the Convention.”

China and the Philippines are also signatories to UNCLOS.The note verbale was filed in response to views expressed by China regarding its maritime claims in the South China Sea in previous note verbales, as well as China’s letter regarding Malaysia’s December 2019 submission to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.

Buti pa ang ibang bansa marunong mag isip dito sa pinas nganga ka at mabuhay china Thank you Lord sa wakas may tunay na nagmamalasakit sa ating inang bayan . Mabuti pa sila hayssss! Puro kagaguhan ginawa nila sa bansa natin Please help us expose this and save our country cnnbrk cnnphilippines CNN FOX4 CBSNews BBCWorld BBCBreaking AlJazeera nytimes TIME WSJ

Buti pa silA Wow, buti pa ibang bansa, ginamit ang pinanalo sa Hague.. e yung inutil sa Malacañang, 'we can't do anything' lang ang alam Ang laking kahihiyan nito. Ang ibang bansa pa talaga nag-iinsist sa arbitral ruling. Si Dutae, pa-jetski lang pangako na di naman natupad. Lapdog ng China, ngayon gusto pa patayuan ng Chinese cell sites mga base militar natin. Kagaguhan lang!

Buti pa ang ibang bansa, nag invoke sa ruling na sa atin na award ng Arbitral Tribunal.. ehh sarili natin gobyerno nag isang tabi dito kasi du30 loves Xi Jinping. I wish our country will get all the help we need regarding this. Imagine another country conquering what is ours because they feel nobody can stop them... 😪

these countries are invoking the arbitral award not because of the Philippines but because of freedom of navigation by ALL countries. Duterte on the other hand is letting the CCP have its way in ‘controlling’ the SCS. Sisihin nyo si Panot at Trillanes diba sila nakipag negotiate jan? Kawawa talaga mga dilawan!! Hahahahaha

Ang s Pilipinas ay s mga pilipino lamang. Pinagkaloob s atin ng Maykapal Ang achievement ni PNoy na di kayang pantayan ng sinumang Presidente ng Pilipinas. China--rising hope of the World This is anti-Semitic Uy buti pa sila... Pilipinas pinamigay na Lang Yan lang kaya nilang gawin pero kung mghahamon ang china ng giyera, tutulong kaya sila? Baka abo na ang pinas wala pang naipapadala ang mga yan.. tingin ko lang🧐🤓

buti pa UNG malalaking bansa naipagtanggol pa Ang karapatan natin pero ung presidente NG mga pupol Wala hakot na lng NG hakot NG commission sa china hindi nga ba Buti p ang ibang bansa pinaglalaban ang Pinas. Ung tatay ng mga DDS pinamimigay ang Pinas. Q: How come other countries invoke the 2016 ruling and the Philippines doesn't? A: Walang bayag si Duterte. Tumanda lang s'ya. That's it.

ANCALERTS In our moments of weakness, our western allies pull through. They can smell the stinking puppet from Malacañang and it's up to us to make his stay temporary. Saddened because other countries need to fight for the Philippines' sovereignty against China and the Filipino's rights to claim what is rightfully theirs, while this Govt cant wait to give away its country's sovereignty to China instead of fighting for it.

Yung Dutae kebs lang Buti pa tong 3 countries na to may paglaban eh yung mismong Pilipinas sumuko na sa China HAHAHAHA Buti sila united ! Dapat tayo din sa SEA.. Lol si Duterte na lang ata ang di nag rereject sa claims ng China. Inutil ka ghorl? Gusto mo ibang bansa pa mag assert ng rights natin for you

Ironic that the one who actually filed and won the case are now the one who don’t want to assert anything. Sa atin pa la eh so anong kinakatakot nyo gyera kasi wala tayo nun armas sandatahang lakas bakit di nyo sisihin ang mga yellowtards after Marcos let face the truth
