China embarrasses PHL by swarming WPS amid friendliness: Locsin

Politics & Governance

China is embarrassing the Philippine government by swarming the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in West Philippine Sea despite government’s friendliness to China, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. said via Twitter.

He was asked if under the current government, Philippines became more open to China but China took more advantage on Philippine islands.

“No.They came in when we were rude under PNoy. And when we were welcoming under GMA; and clueless under FVR. What is disappointing is that despite our friendliness and uninterrupted friendship China continually embarrasses our govt by swarming all over OUR exclusive economic zone,” Secretary Locsin said.
