China once again renewed tensions in the West Philippine Sea with the presence of hundreds of its vessels – allegedly manned by Chinese maritime militia – near Julian Felipe Reef.
The continued presence of the vessels despite clear skies – the ships reportedly just took shelter in the area due to inclement weather – has prompted the Philippines to file diplomatic protests against China.
On Thursday, April 15, Rappler editor-at-large Marites Vitug talks to former Supreme Court senior associate justice Antonio Carpio on the developments in the West Philippine Sea and how he sees the so-called the worst tension between the two countries possibly ending.
Carpio, a staunch defender of the West Philippine Sea, will also talk about the hopes of the 1Sambayan electoral coalition which aims to field a single opposition standard-bearer in the 2022 presidential elections.
