MANILA, Philippines – Siniguro ng Malacañang na igigiit nito ang kahalagahan ng freedom of navigation sa West Philippine Sea sa gitna ng pagtatayo ng dagdag na runway ng China sa pinag-aagawang isla.

“Government is determined to assert the importance of freedom of navigation and overflight in the West Philippine Sea or South China Sea,” wika pa ni Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Hermino Coloma Jr. sa Radyo ng Bayan kahapon.

Nakatanggap ng ulat ang Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, think tank ng Estados Unidos, na nagtayo ng dagdag na runway ang China sa Kagitingan reef na sinasakop nito sa West Philippine Sea.

“Hence, the building of additional runways contributes to heightened tensions in the region. We reiterate that these actions by China violate not only pertinent international laws but also the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea of which China is a signatory along with the member countries of ASEAN,” wika pa ni Sec. Coloma.
