    The Chinese and Philippine defense chiefs warned rival claimants Monday to avoid unilateral action and to act responsibly in the dispute over South China Sea islands, where recent spats have renewed tensions.
    Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie and his Philippine counterpart, Voltaire Gazmin, acknowledged in a joint statement the need to ensure that the South China Sea remains stable.
    Liang's four-day visit comes amid renewed tensions in the disputed Spratly Islands, which are contested by China, the Philippines and four other nations. Washington has expressed concerns that the disputes could hamper access to one of the world's busiest commercial sea lanes.
    "Unilateral actions which could cause alarm should be avoided," the defense ministers said in the statement.
    Gazmin said they discussed the May 11 sighting of two unidentified foreign fighter jets near an island occupied by Filipino troops. Two Philippine patrol planes failed to identify the jets, which made no hostile moves.
    Liang, according to Gazmin, mentioned that Philippine media accounts identified the two aircraft as Russian-made MIG fighter jets and clarified that China has no MIG planes in its air force.
    The discussions did not touch on a March 2 incident in which the Philippine government accused two Chinese patrol boats of harassing a Filipino oil exploration ship into leaving a vast area called the Reed Bank. A Filipino general scrambled two military aircraft, which arrived at the scene after the Chinese vessels had left, the Philippine military said.
    Filipino officials say the Reed Bank, which lies off the western Philippine province of Palawan, is not a disputed territory. China countered by saying that it has jurisdiction over the Spratlys and adjacent waters.
    Gazmin said he and Liang agreed that any conflict "should be settled amicably by opening the lines of communication, dialogues and sitting down and talking to each other."
    Liang discussed the dispute in a meeting with President Benigno Aquino III later Monday.
    Although they did not discuss the recent altercations in detail, both agreed that there should be more dialogue to safeguard diplomatic relations among nations with claims to the Spratlys, presidential spokesman Ricky Carandang said.

    Lets call for UN intervention.. declared spartly as OPEN HIGH SEAS... let a UN Convention on the Law of the SEA summoned for new Treaty.. well of course the existing treaty already provided boundaries base on Exclusive Economic Zone and Territorial Water.. but the Spartly thing need further LAWS hehehe
     



  3. kaya yata pinag aawayan yan.. kasi south china sea is rich in natural gas.. at yung doorway dun eh spratly islands... buti na lang we have a piece of the spratly's.. hehehe
     



  4. My Conspiracy Theory Only... hehehehehe

    china wants all of south china sea... they think kanila lahat yun(infact sa mapa nila nakalagay kanila un lahat).. with the large reserve of oil/natural gas in there..
    we want what is ours.. so is vietnam malasia taiwan etc..
    ASEAN(all of SouthEastAsian Nations) is No match for china...

    china using military force to police the area....
    USA want china to go down.. coz china is a threat to their economic(cheap Made in china) and national security.. they want to remain at the top..
    ASEAN will see this as an advantage(US help)..

    looks like if china dont change its military foreign policy.. for the fast decade they have been upping their military capability specially their navy(looks like they realy want the whole south china sea).. kulang nalang sa kanila is an aircraft carrier.. and they are planning to build lots of them they are even planing to send a man on the moon by 2020... Once they have a large force comparable to USA.. war will brake out...

    world war III na... nakooowww... and we are going to be in the middle of it again.....

    eto isang reaction dun sa link:

    IT'S TIME TO BE TRUE TO OUR BELOVED COUNTRY...if it takes blood and life, "ang mamatay ng dahil sayo", sabi ng ating Lupang Hinirang, Bansang Pilipinas! I HOPE THIS IS FOUND IN THE HEART OF OUR LEADERS!
    Isinilang tayo sa bansang ito upang PANGALAGAAN ANG ATING BANSA AT ATING KAPWA PILIPINO, bata o matanda, mahirap o mayaman, may pinag-aralan o wala!

    Kung aaksyon ang ating Gobyerno now OKAY lang kahit masabi natin na LATE na kc it would take us a decade to mortify our defense forces with high-tech weapons and equipments "IF"...our leaders would do their best to be true and sincere to our country, WALANG KURAKOT, WALANG PROPAGANDA at PAMUMULITIKA! Ipakita SANA natin ang ating taglay na LAKAS at TALINO at pagiging Maka-Diyos at Maka-Bayan! Wala sa daan ng EDSA at bangayan sa Senado, Congreso at Relihiyon ang KALAYAAN AT KAPAYAPAAN, kundi nasa bawat PUSO NATIN MAGSISIMULA IYON! Pusong TOTOO AT TAPAT!

    PNOY and BINAY, Filipino people ( all tribes and localities) are here to support whatever it takes! Alam natin na very emotional and intellectual ang mga Pilipino, meaning MAY PUSO at UTAK na! GAMITIN SANA ang mga ito sa TAMANG PAGBABAGO tungo sa ating PAG-UNLAD na WALANG KINATATAKUTAN kundi DIYOS LANG! People would be willing to be burned IF THEY WOULD SEE THEIR LEADERS ON FIRE FOR THEIR COUNTRY!!!! If we will die for our country, it's an honorable act at least may silbi at pakinabang ang ating buhay. Marami na ang nagbuwis ng BUHAY sa bansang ito. Mga OFW's nagpapadala ng pera, MAGSASAKA at MANGINGISDA na nagpapakain sa atin, mga NGO's na nakakarating sa mga remote islands upang tumulong na walang expectation na KAPALIT!

    SILA ang mga TUNAY NA BAYANING FILIPINO! If we will be imprisoned or die because of CORRUPTION etc. we are not a TRUE FILIPINO! A TRUE FILIPINO LIVES AND DIES FOR THE BEST OF HIS COUNTRY! DIPLOMACY is GOOD but a BRAVE HEART not willing to COMPROMISE for anything, wealth, fame and personal interest. COURAGE MUST FIRST be in the heart of our leaders!
    However, when this impossibility happens, CHINA is already on its peak of occupying every Phil. territories. It's good to have STRONG ALLIES, but our STRENGTH IS "TAYO RIN MGA PILIPINO". Our national HEROES have fought for it for us to to have a place to live and food to eat. Can we not sacrifice in return for our "future FILIPINO GENERATION?"
    Thus our country is HUNGRY for TRUE HEROES! Hindi kaya ni Pacquiao suntukin ang lahat ng kalaban at balakid para sa ating PAGUNLAD at KALAYAAN mula sa KAHIRAPAN.
    OUR ONLY HOPE: sa lahat ng sectors dito sa ating bansa ESPECIALLY OUR LEADERS, EACH ONE MUST GIVE THEIR BEST FOR GOD, COUNTRY and GOODNESS sake!!!

    Mahal kita bayan kong Pilipinas!

    there never been a good war.. nor a bad peace.. Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen..as per churchil said We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender. :p:D:)
