Fishing ban ng China sa WPS kinontra

0 157

Kinontra ng Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) ang pinatupad na fishing ban ng China sa South China Sea, kung saan kasama ang West Philippine Sea.

“As announced by China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the ban covers ‘waters north of 12 degrees north latitude’ in the South China Sea. These waters include areas over which the Philippines exercises sovereignty, sovereign rights, and jurisdiction,” saad ng DFA.

Ang moratorium na pinatupad ng China ay mula May 1 hanggang August 16, kung saan matatamaan din ang parte ng exclusive economic zone ng Pilipinas.

“China’s annual fishing moratorium extends far beyond China’s legitimate maritime entitlements under UNCLOS and is without basis under international law,” giit ng ahensya.

“The Philippines strongly urges China to desist from any action and activity that infringes on Philippine sovereignty, sovereign rights, and jurisdiction, in contravention of international law.”

Ayon sa DFA, ang China fishing ban ay labag sa Article 56 ng United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), na nagbigay ng karapatan sa Pilipinas sa mga resources sa loob ng EEZ.

Ayon kay DFA strategic communication and research executive director Ivy Banzon-Abalos, naghain na sila ng diplomatic protest para ireklamo ang nasabing fishing ban. (RP)
