MANILA - The Philippines’ arbitration victory against China is “non-negotiable”, the Department of Foreign Affairs said on Sunday on the 4th anniversary of the verdict.

On July 12 four years ago, the Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled in favor of the Philippines' arguments for maritime entitlements over the West Philippine Sea, rejecting China's claims in the resource-rich area.

“The Tribunal authoritatively ruled that China’s claim of historic rights to resources within the sea areas falling within the ‘nine-dash line’ had no basis in law,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said in a statement. “Compliance in good faith with the award would be consistent with the obligations of the Philippines and China under international law, including UNCLOS to which both parties are signatories,” Locsin said.

In June last year, a Chinese vessel collided with a Filipino fishing boat and sank it, and then left the boat’s crew floating in the middle of the sea.

Of course, non-negotiable. So boss hands it over to bff with an ass-kissed smile.

The lives of 11k employees are non-negotiable either, just like the arbitral award, they have been abandoned by this government, we need actions more than words please

Pwede tigil tigilan niyo na paggamit sa name na yan. It's West Philippine Sea 🤦‍♀️ Ayusin niyo balita niyo next time.

Louder so your boss will hear it!

Ang gulo gulo nyo sa totoo lang! Konta kayo ng malacanang sir ano ba talaga? Jusko

Nako As I know BFF Ni PRD sila KAYA Kung gusto gagawa cya nang paraan.. you know

Pero may pogo island pa rin imbis na mangrove forest

Weh d nga,bkit hindi mo sabihin kay Digong mandarambong yan

Pero hindi ganyan ang ipinahihiwatig ng Presidente. Para siyang aso sa tsina!


Pero sa likod humahalik pa rin sa pwet ng China 🐍

But can we practice what you preach po sir?


Just words...nothing else

Govt actions contradict your statement!


But you’ll just leave it at that. Passive.

Teka, did you clear that up with President Xi’s fentanyl-addicted errand boy in Malacanang?

Pero ang POGO negotiable. Patay na mga fishermen natin wala pa rin negotiation sa China. Bakit kaya?

All talk

Their attempt to seemingly act tough now doesn't erase the memory of how they backed-down numerous times before:

What's the point of this victory when China has already encroached the country? When it's all hot air, and the other side clearly refuses to honor the rule?

Ayaw pumalag ng presidente natin kaya Indonesia na pumalag para sa atin. Kahiya!


Hi DFA. Pls inform the president. Thanks
