Armed Forces of the Philippines is alarmed with the ongoing reclamation in West Philippine Sea being done by Chinese government. AFP Chief-of-Staff General Gregorio Pio Catapang said one reclamation work in the territory is fifty percent completed.
“It’s alarming in the sense that it could be used for purposes other than peaceful use,” General Catapang says as quoted by Philippine News Agency.
The project’s specification is not yet confirmed, but with its length it can accommodate an airfield.
“We continue to monitor what’s happening in the West Philippine Sea, we are appraised on the situation. We know there is still ongoing reclamation,” the General added.
