Vietnam and PH naval troops party is a ‘farce’, provocative

Asked if China takes Vietnamese and Philippine naval forces’ activity over the weekend as a challenge, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying answered with a question, “Don’t you think this little trick by Vietnam and the Philippines is at most a clumsy farce?”

She again reiterated, “China has indisputable sovereignty over the Nansha Islands and their adjacent waters.”

“We require the Philippines and Vietnam to stop all the provocative actions, strictly abide by the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea and refrain from any action that may complicate and aggravate the disputes,” the Chinese spokeperson said.


Hua Chunying also said, “If the Chinese side would plan for any activities (building an airport) on relevant reef (Kagitingan reef), that is within China’s sovereignty.”
