Filipinos must unite vs China’s aggression in WPS – Balleque

The General Santos City council on Tuesday has approved a resolution supporting the Philippines government’s claim over the West Philippine Sea.

Councilor Froebel Kan Balleque, in a resolution, said the country’s sovereignty is “being ever more threatened” due to the harassment of the Chinese maritime forces in the West Philippine Sea.

He also stressed the importance for Filipinos to unite against China’s expansive claims.

“Although the Philippines has won the case under the Permanent Court of Arbitration, China has still disregarded this and still claims the islands in the West Philippine Sea as its own,” he said.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said on Tuesday that the Philippines and China have resolved to de-escalate tensions in the region.
