Politics & Governance

The Philippines has Sabah claim, this was stated by Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo during March 7 press briefing.

“The position of the President as you said, mayroon tayong claim,” Panelo said.

“Eh totoo namang may claim tayo ‘di ba? That has been a bone of contention ever since, time pa yata ni Presidente Marcos iyan eh, iyong Sabah issue,” he added.


However, he said Sabah is not included in the agenda for the meeting of President Rodrigo Duterte and Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

“It’s not in the agenda as I know,” Panelo said.
