HOTHEAD OFFICIALS ARE SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE ON SPRATLY VISIT

by Napanice (no login)

 

SO, NOW THAT GLORIA'S CAGE WAS RATTLED BY TAIWAN'S RENEWED INTEREST ON THE SPRATLYS ISLAND GROUP, HER POLITICAL ALLIES ARE JUMPING ON THE BANDWAGON OF WAR DRUMMERS TO DRAW THE IRE OF THE PEOPLE AGAINST THE TAIWANESE.

THIS IS IN DIRECT CONTRAST TO THE PASSIVE POLITICAL POSTURE OF THE GOVERNMENT WHICH ESSENTIALLY LEAVES THE CLAIMS ISSUE ON THE SPRATLYS AT THE MERCY OF TIME AND DO NOTHING LEADERS. BUT DOES THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT THINK IT CAN STOP THE COMBINED MILITARY MIGHT OF TAIWAN AND CHINA SHOULD THEY DECIDE TO START DRILLING FOR OIL IN THE REGION?

NAP

Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Romulo earlier said Chen’s decision to push through with his visit to what the Philippines calls as Ligao Island "works against the joint efforts by claimant countries in the South China Sea to achieve peace and stability in the region in accordance with the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DoC)."

The Philippines is urging other claimant countries to exercise prudence, self-restraint and use diplomacy as the tool to settle disputes in keeping with the spirit of the DoC, Romulo added.

Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago said that the Philippines should tighten its security in islands being claimed by the country in the disputed Spratly group of islands in the South China Sea.

Santiago issued the statement that echoed the reaction made by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) over Taiwanese president Chen Shui-bian visit to an island being claimed by Taiwan.

“Hindi maganda iyon dahil nagtatawag pansin s’ya...dito sa away ng mga bansa tungkol sa Spratly island. Ano kaya ang pakiramdaman naman nila kung ipadala naman natin 'yung presidente natin doon at magtuturo s'ya doon sa Spratly," said the Senate's foreign relations committee chief.
