"Solicitor General Florin Hilbay and principal counsel Paul Reichler briefed the Philippine delegation on the expected flow of the proceedings for the hearing days, assuring that we are fully prepared to present our case to the Tribunal," pahayag ni Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte.

Nauna nang nanawagan si Pangulong Benigno Aquino III sa China na respetuhin ang rule of law kasunod ng pagtatayo ng artificial islands sa pinag-aagawang teritoryo.

"As the arbitration process we have entered into continues to its logical conclusion, we are hopeful that China would honor its word and respect the rule of law," wika ni Aquino sa 10th East Asia Summit sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
