Sen. Bam on DFA’s decision to contest China-named features in the Philippine Rise
DFA’s declaration to contest the China-named features is one step toward safeguarding Philippine territory.
We hope they will follow through on the nullification of these Chinese names in Philippine Rise.
China has violated our sovereign rights in discovering these features and must not be given the honor of naming them.
Inaasahan natin na ipaglalaban na ng administrasyon ang Philippine Rise at susuportahan ang ating mga scientists sa pagsasagawa ng independent research sa ating teritoryo.
