BEIJING, April 29 (Xinhua) -- China said Sunday that the Philippines' allegation that a Chinese ship "bullied" Philippine vessels was sheer subjective assumption.

"According to the information from relevant authorities, China's Yuzheng 310 went on patrol in waters off the coast of Huangyan Island in the early morning of April 28 (Saturday) in accordance with the law," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin in response to a question from the press.

"The Philippine side's allegation about the Chinese fishery patrol ship 'bullying' Philippine vessels is sheer subjective assumption," said the spokesman.

On Saturday, the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs said that the Chinese ship approached several Philippine vessels and generated a two-meter wave to bully them.

"The Huangyan Island is an inherent part of China's territory and we hope that the Philippine side will stop creating incidents that make things even more complicated," he added.

Huangyan Island belongs to China. Any encroachment into Chinese territory is an encroachment to its territorial integrity. The Philippines vessels had not rights to be there. On the contrary, the Chinese fishery patrol ship had every rights to patrol its own territory. The culprits here were the Philippines vessels and they were the one who were encroaching the Chinese territory to seek confrontation. The question of "bully" is a sheer fabrication by the Philippines to discredit China.

I think the Philippine vessels are trying to block the path of the Chinese ship and they are getting too close thus they were hit with the waves. If Philippine vessels had done evasive movements, they will not get hit with the waves.
