Philippines urges fishermen to keep up presence at China-held shoal

  • The Philippine Coast Guard has successfully removed a Chinese barrier at the disputed Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea, marking a significant development in the ongoing territorial conflict. The shoal, located about 200km off the Philippines and 850km from mainland China, has been claimed by both countries as their sovereign territory.
  • In response to the removal of the barrier, China advised Manila to avoid provocations and not cause trouble. Despite this, the Philippine Coast Guard is encouraging their fishermen to continue operating in the disputed waters and is exploring ways to increase law enforcement efforts in the area.
  • The Philippine fisheries bureau has successfully anchored a vessel just 300m from the Scarborough Shoal's lagoon, marking the closest point they have reached since China seized the shoal in 2012. This move is seen as a strategic step towards asserting the Philippines' claims over the resource-rich fishing spot.
