“What they have agreed upon is that both countries will refrain or avoid performing aggressive, provocative acts that will trigger incidents that have [happened] before,” Panelo said.
Mr. Duterte, who is on a five-day visit here, took up in his meeting with Xi on Thursday night the 2016 ruling by the international arbitral tribunal in The Hague, which favored the Philippines in its maritime dispute with China over the West Philippine Sea.

Thread: #Vietnam shuns #Huawei as it seeks to build Southeast Asia’s first 5G network - It is an outlier in Southeast Asia, where the #Philippines, #Thailand and #Malaysia are open to deploying Huawei technology - An example to others @Aryanwarlord…
Vietnam is quietly siding with the Trump administration, which has barred Huawei from buying US technology over national security concerns. Vietnam is intent on being the first Asean nation to provide a 5G network – without China’s tech powerhouse Huawei.
Viettel Group, Vietnam’s largest mobile carrier owned by the defence ministry, will deploy Ericsson AB’s equipment in Hanoi and Nokia Oyj’s technology in Ho Chi Minh City, said Viettel chief executive officer Le Dang Dung.

WHEN PEOPLE ARE SMARTER THAN THEIR GOVERNMENT - "Reactive. That's the #Philippines. The Philippines has a government of secretaries walking around with their pants down." JoeAm @societyofhonor wrote it the way it is.... 👍A must read👍…
You can see Twitter’s value when people know Chinese military ships are plowing through Philippine seas before the Secretary of Defense knows it. Or people realize that Chinese interests have purchased strategic islands before the newspapers pick it up.
It is rare these days to see government taking or announcing proactive steps AHEAD of breaking problems. Reactive. That is the Philippines. The Philippines has a government of secretaries walking around with their pants down.

Thread: #Philippines Carpio slams #China’s 'double standard' in warship passage near Tawi-Tawi - Although the Philippines observes China's right of innocent passage in its waters, China consistently stops Filipinos from patrolling parts of its waters…
A Chinese warship passed through Philippine territorial waters 2-3 weeks ago, said Supreme Court Justice Carpio, adding that it showed China’s "double standard" since it never allows Filipino vessels free passage in waters Beijing claims to be its territory in the WP Sea.
"I got verified information that the Chinese aircraft carrier, has passed through the Sibutu Passage, which is within our archipelagic waters, within our territorial waters,” Carpio told reporters at a forum at the University of the Philippines Diliman on Friday, July 19.

Thread: #US, #Philippines face moment of treaty truth - Upcoming review of the two sides’ mutual defense treaty could allow the US to preposition weapons pointed at #China in the contested #SouthChinaSea @zaldytor @Marybeezzz @societyofhonor…
The Philippines and United States are set to review their mutual defense alliance, critically timed deliberations that will have major implications for regional security, including in the South China Sea.
Both allies face new and rising security risks from China’s militarization of the contested sea, moves that could soon tilt towards a balance of power-testing military confrontation for control of the waterway.

The #Vietnamese Navy & Coast Guard have been mobilized & are in high alert status. The info running around in Viet military circles is that the Chinese ships are acting very aggressively and attempted to ram VN vessels. @CollinSLKoh @duandang @BonnieGlaser
The Chinese survey ship is protected not only by Chinese coast guard vessels, but also by Chinese navy ships positioned behind the Chinese coast guard vessels. The Chinese ships are near the DK-1 area of Vietnamese oil rigs & platforms.
Both sides are keeping things under wraps for now. There is no official information or media news about this situation. The situation is tense, but is not at the level of the 2014 oil rig incidents, for now. Pictures of the DK-1 oil rig area that is next to the contested area.

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!

1) Hundreds killed and hundreds more wounded in Easter blasts at #SriLanka churches. While no group has yet claimed responsibility, targeting Christians is a staple of #ISIS attack directives (not to mention past attacks in places like Egypt).
2) To that point, #ISIS supporters are already celebrating the attacks as revenge for the military campaign against the group: “Just like the massacre of mosques, it is an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”…
3) While #SriLanka has indeed been mentioned within #ISIS chatter—along with members from Sri Lanka touted as being within the group’s ranks—the country has never been a prominent staple of incitements and recruitment to the like of other nations.

Sec. Pompeo made a major statement on U.S. military defense of #Philippines against China.

How significant?

How does international law shape the new posture?

“The US-Philippines Defense Treaty and the Pompeo Doctrine on #SouthChinaSea” | by @marknevitt…
At the time, @AbeDenmark called it “Big news for the US-Philippines Alliance. Expect China to test within the year (what constitutes an armed attack?).”

Nevitt address those legal issues and more in his article.
“Extremely significant policy shift”

1. Toxic masculinity killed 25 people
2. State negligence and refusal to invest in the train system continues to kill #Egyptians
Clearly, the long-running neglect by successive #Egyptian regimes of the rail network has claimed too many lives. And re yesterday’s tragedy, the long-running refusal to confront patriarchy & toxic masculinity - on state and street level - will also continue to claim lives.
A fight between 2 men killed 25 people. When I write or talk about feminism and the need to dismantle patriarchy, I hear “This isn’t the time!” When is the time? Men who benefit from patriarchy don’t care about its toll on others. It took a toll on 25 people yesterday. #Egypt

This is outrageous: @mariaressa, the CEO of @rapplerdotcom a news website critical of the government in the #Philippines, has been arrested at its headquarters in #Manila. Rappler journalists live-streamed the arrest on Facebook and Twitter.…
Here, in November at a press freedom event at @ChathamHouse, @mariaressa speaks of the threat she was facing. It was an honour to meet her and speak alongside her. I send her and @rapplerdotcom team full solidarity
The threat to journalists from authoritarian regimes around the world is real. Remember the BBC journalist beaten at a Trump rally just 2 days ago. And no amount of fame/prominence can protect journalists: @mariaressa is well known and respected,was a TIME Person of the Year 2018

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

Time did the right thing today by awarding #TimePersonOfTheYear to journalists. It inspired me to look back at how @UN_SPExperts have emphasized the epidemic of attacks on journalists/ism just this year
following are just some of the attacks on journalists we highlighted. a core fact is that most attacks, and most abuses of human rights, are not held accountable.
the @Time 'award' takes place against the backdrop of @realDonaldTrump's attacks on truth
