Commentary: Philippine renaming of South China Sea willful move, fond dream (2)


09:02, September 14, 2012

Neither will the United Nations agree to register the invalid name, although the Philippine government said it would furnish a copy of the order and official map to the U.N. secretary-general.

The Philippine government has blatantly violated the basic principles and spirit of the Declaration of the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC), which, signed by China and ASEAN, stipulates the territorial and jurisdictional disputes must be resolved between the countries concerned through friendly consultation and negotiation.

Strictly following the DOC, China has exercised maximum restraint on the South China Sea issue and proposed to shelve disputes and seek joint development, in a bid to prevent escalation and maintain peace and stability in the region.

Beijing hopes Manila will immediately cease such moves and play a positive and constructive role in China-Philippines relations on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.
