China Coast Guard, Philippine Navy Supply Ships Collide In The Disputed Spratly Islands

Sharing is Caring!

Things are heating up all over….

People’s Daily:

A #Philippine supply ship illegally entered the waters near Ren’ai Jiao in China’s Nansha Islands on Monday. The China Coast Guard (CCG) took control measures against the Philippine vessel in accordance with law. At 5:59 am, the Philippine ship ignored multiple warnings from the Chinese side, went against the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, and approached Chinese vessels navigating normally in a deliberate, dangerous and unprofessional way, resulting in a collision. The responsibility for the incident lies entirely with the Philippine side:

What did the Chinese coast guard say about the collision?

The Chinese coast guard accused the Philippine ship of having “illegally broken into the sea near Ren’ai Reef in China’s Nansha Islands,” using Beijing’s official term for the Spratly Islands.

“The Philippine replenishment ship ignored many solemn warnings from the Chinese side,” Beijing’s coast guard said in a statement.

It “approached the… Chinese vessel in an unprofessional way, resulting in a collision”, the statement read.

“The Chinese Coast Guard took control measures against the Philippine ship in accordance with the law,” it said, without elaborating further.
