#THEPHILIPPINES: Pres. Duterte Won't End Patrols In China-Claimed Waters

[World Politics News]

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has said he will not withdraw navy and coastguard vessels patrolling the disputed South China Sea, insisting the country’s sovereignty over the waters is not negotiable. 

Tensions over the sea – which China claims almost entirely – have spiked as Beijing refuses to pull out vessels from the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone and Manila steps up maritime patrols. Duterte is under growing domestic pressure to take a harder line.
