Teritoryo ng Pilipinas didepensahan ni Pangulong Marcos
Patuloy na didepensahan ni Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. ang teritoryo ng Pilipinas.
Pahayag ito ni Pangulong Marcos sa gitna ng inilabas ng China na 10-dash line map sa South China Sea.
Sa panayam kay Pangulong Marcos sa Palawan, sinabi nito na patuloy na pinaninindigan ng Pilipinas ang territorial rights sa West Philippine Sea.
Matatandaan na ang ama ni Pangulong Marcos na si dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Sr. ang nagtatag sa munisipalidad ng Kalayaan Islands sa Palawan noong 1978 sa ilalim ng Presidential Decree 1596 para patunayan na sakop ito ng teritoryo ng Pilipinas.
“Now of course, we’ll continue to defend our territorial sovereignty, our territorial rights. We have not changed our approach, it is other countries around us that have changed their approach. Once again, we have received the news that now the nine-dash line has been extended to the ten-dash line. And we will have to respond to all of these—and we will. But again, these are operational details that I would prefer not to talk about.,” pahayag ni Pangulong Marcos.
“I think for the international… because we have stayed true to the rules based international law, especially the UNCLOS, that I think, puts us in very solid ground in terms of our claims to territorial sovereignty, maritime territory and this has been validated and supported by many, many countries around the world, and we should take strength in that, and I believe, that again is very big help to the Philippines in continuing to defend our maritime borders,” dagdag ni Pangulong Marcos.
Sabi ni Pangulong Marcos, sasagutin ng Pilipinas ang bagong pahayag ng China.
