Phl to take Chinese incursions to UN

The government will bring to the United Nations six to seven incidents of Chinese incursions into the country’s territorial waters, President Aquino said yesterday.

Malacañang also said the Philippines would act accordingly on a report that a Chinese warship had fired at local boats fishing in Quirino or Jackson Atoll in the West Philippine Sea.

The President expressed concern over the intrusions in a talk with reporters on Wednesday night in Brunei while he was on a state visit.

He said the Philippines was preparing to file a report before the UN on some “six to seven instances” of Chinese intrusion or provocative actions in the West Philippine Sea.

“We are completing the data. We will present it to them (China) and then bring these to the appropriate body, which most of the time is the United Nations,” Aquino said.
