GAPAY SAYS SITUATION IN SOUTH CHINA SEA REMAINS VOLATILE

Armed Forces chief General Gilbert Gapay on Tuesday described the situation in the South China Sea as “volatile and uncertain.”

Gapay explained that the situation in the region has been uncertain because of the continuous aggressive actions of China and the United States’ move to protect its interest in the area.

Beijing’s unilateral exercises have also resulted in a “more tensed” situation in the region, according to Gapay. The AFP chief, however, maintained that all issues in the resource-rich region should be dealt with peacefully and in a diplomatic manner.

China has been claiming a huge portion of the South China Sea as part of its territory.

On July 12, 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, Netherlands delivered a sweeping victory to the Philippines on its case against China and invalidated the latter’s massive and historical claims over the South China Sea.

China has since refused to recognize the said ruling.
