Thread #Philippines: Duterte won’t raise Hague ruling again, says Palace - Xi assured President Duterte that China will avoid “provocative acts” in the #SouthChinaSea - Yeah, sure, we believe you..... globalnation.inquirer.net/179533/du30-wo…
“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.
According to Panelo, the two leaders understood that their contrasting views on the arbitral ruling should not hinder the two nations in their pursuit of security and economic cooperation, and in further improving relations.
He said that Xi’s firm stance on the matter was a signal for the President to stop bringing it up in their future meetings.
“No more. We have already raised it. We will not raise it repeatedly,” Panelo said.
Regarding to the construction of additional Chinese military structures in disputed areas, Panelo said he was not sure if these were aggressive acts since the Philippines was also building structures in contested areas. - Amazing!!!
Chinese construction in the Philippines EEZ is now seen as equal to PH construction on its own territory according to Panelo. Is Panelo the Philippines spokesperson or a Chinese agent? @societyofhonor
