China reiterates ‘jurisdiction’ in South China Sea amid PH protest | Source: ABS-CBN

This follows the Philippines’ filing of a fresh protest against China over activities in its exclusive economic zone within the resource-rich South China Sea. This is not the first time Beijing maintained its position in the disputed South China Sea, even if the international Permanent Court of Arbitration invalidated their sweeping claims over almost the entire waters in a July 2016 ruling. Beijing continues to disregard the ruling as it continues to build islands in the waters and has allegedly blocked access of fishermen from the Philippines and other coastal states.
