In 2013, the Philippines filed a case with the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) at The Hague in the Netherlands, challenging China’s sweeping claim of nearly the entire South China Sea, including parts of the West Philippine Sea. READ: PH wins arbitration case over South China Sea The PCA ruled in favor of the Philippines in July 2016, invalidating China’s nine-dash line claim. "This is consistent with the Philippines-US Joint Vision Statement issued on 16 November 2021, which states that the People's Republic of China's (PRC) expansive maritime claims in the South China Sea are inconsistent with the international law of the sea," the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a statement. Beijing has repeatedly refused to recognize the ruling. Since then…I have not seen today’s reports… but yesterday, we closed after nine minutes. Robredo said China recognizing the arbitral ruling should be the first step for the Philippines to enter a joint venture with the East Asian country." In its most recent study, the State Department said that China asserts unlawful maritime claims in most of the South China Sea, including an unlawful historic rights claim. “Dapat yun young (That should be Step 1 that if we are to enter into any joint venture or joint exploration activity with China, dapat ang unang requirement nation (that should be our first requirement is) that China recognizes our arbitral win,” the vice president said.

“Para sa’ kin (For me) a good neighbor and a real friend is really fair and follows international law. "Since 2014, the PRC has continued to assert claims to a wide swath of the South China Sea as well as to what the PRC has termed 'internal waters' and 'outlying archipelagos,' all of which are inconsistent with international law as reflected in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention," the State Department said. She said they also needed the quota as many OVP staffers also contracted the disease and, therefore, we’re unable to help respond to telemedicine queries. Para sa’ kin maiintindihan (They should understand) that might not make right. It does not bully or take advantage and any leader should have the courage to stand up for the dignity of our nation,” she added. China insists ownership of nearly 90% of the waters even as it overlaps with the territories of its rival claimants like the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, and Taiwan. ADVERTISEMENT Robredo said the Philippines under her leadership will ensure that Manila’s ties with Beijing or any other country “will always be based on mutual trust and respect and recognition of the international laws. On top of that, they have already built a network of partners and volunteers who have helped during disasters and COVID-19.” “We will have to address challenges always with courage and honor and we should be unrestrained by fear and be free from the influence of any political power,” she said. Competing claims to the waters and its resources have long been feared as Asia’s next potential flashpoint for a major armed conflict. When Typhoon Odette hit several areas of the country recently, Robredo was the first to personally inspect the damage and distribute relief goods to affected areas.

“The leader of the country should be ready to stand up for our rights. We should not make compromises when it comes to our independence and territory,” she added. So because we have a network of volunteers, we have a network of partners already, it was really easy for us to you know, ask help from people who can give help,” she added. abc Subscribe to our global nation newsletter By providing an email address.
