China urges the Philippines on Tuesday to discard the South China Sea disputes filed with the International tribunal at the Hague and rather arrange with Beijing directly before its too late, following the arbitration panel’s most recent request for information from China.

The Philippines has asked the tribunal in The Hague to declare China’s claims to virtually all the South China Sea invalid, saying Beijing’s activities have stomped on the other countries’ rights.

China insisted that the Tribunal doesn’t have jurisdiction and has declined to participate in the case and pursuing that bilateral talks are the best option for both claimants.

The tribunal, which works under the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, held a weeklong hearing to completion Monday to address China’s dispute.

It said that Beijing has until Aug. 17 to comment on the hearing and that it should make a ruling on the issue this year.

001372a9ae0514e1075501Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying on Tuesday emphasized China’s opposition to the arbitration, and said Beijing “will never acknowledge the unilateral attempts to turn to a third party to solve the disputes.”

”China encourages the Philippines to come back to the right track of resolving disputes through negotiation and consultation,” she said in a statement.

The Philippines applauded the tribunal’s push to nudge China again to join the case, saying the five-man arbitration body has been reasonable, transparent and straightforward in its treatment of Manila’s protests against Beijing.

“We have requested that China takes part and we keep on extending the welcome for them to clarify their side,” Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs representative Charles Jose said by telephone in Manila.

South China Sea claim

China, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan have been challenging the ownership of the resource-rich South China Sea. The United States and other countries have expressed concerns over China’s island-building in the region that they say has been provocative and has damaged vast coral reefs in the disputed waters. – Jason E.



  1. If youre going to look at the MAP on top. Why not “give them the paracels since its near their teritory. But they have to leave us within our ECONOMIC ZONE and HALF of Spratly is our’s just look… lol… CHINA WANTS ALL OF THE CHINA SEA… They are SUPER SELFISH… They want philippines to “STAY within BEACH areas only… What is CHINA thinking? I think Chinese Government is out of their mind. >_<

    • Philippines got no claims on paracels they only claim 200 NM from its shores. The case is about rights to EEZ. China can’t claim other countries EEZ. In fact they cant claim the entire South of China sea. China just cant ignore other countries right inside their own EEZ. Its like bullying a man inside his own backyard.

  2. ano itong sinasabi ng nga tsengwa na ito na come back to the right track of resolving disfutes through negotiation and consultation ,eh sila itong basta na lang pumunta sa nga isla at nagtayo ng nga base militar doon ng tetreat pa

  3. Remember the Scarborough mutual withdrawal agreement? China screwed the Philippines. They will stilck it up Pnoy’s butt if we agree again. No way…………REMEMBER THAT!

  4. takot lang yang mga intsik kaya nag babanta na. palibhasa matatalo sila sa court dapat mas lalo maging agresibo at pag handaan ng bansa ang pag depensa natin para sa nalalapit na labanan, siguradong frontline tayo ng war. kaya be ready for it anytime

  5. China is very scare of losing the case. U.S., Japan, Australia and India will enforce the ruling by Hague. Cheating China is back off in a corner can’t move forward nor can’t move backward.

  6. Sa susunod na presidente ng pilipinas bilateral talks pa kayo sa china para isumpa kayo ng susunod na henerasyon. Di sumusunod sa agreement yang mga hinayupak na yan. Wala nga sinunod sa COC sa WPS lalo na sa UNCLOS na signatory sila tapos gusto nila bilateral talks pa. Ayaw nila sundin ang UNCLOS sa WPS pero UNCLOS din ginagamit nila sa dispute sa Senkaku island para makakuha ng international support. WTF talaga

  7. stupid greedy chinese retards & morons. worst race on the planet. sooo greedyyy. hey, china you can not own lifetime our islands beyond our 200nm eez.
