January 21st, 2014
The Philippines will defy new Chinese fishing rules in disputed areas of the South China Sea and the navy will escort fishing boats to protect them if necessary, the defense secretary said on Thursday.
“We will not follow their rules,” Philippine Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin told reporters. “Why should we seek permission from another country? They do not own our fishing grounds. That’s ours, okay.”
Gazmin said the navy would escort the boats if needed. “We still have the capability to secure them,” he said. “There is really a need to show force because China has been very aggressive lately. They started with air defense identification zone, then this fishing laws.”
