MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines and Vietnam vowed yesterday to oppose China’s increasingly aggressive behavior in the West Philippine Sea and South China Sea, jointly announcing that a strategic partnership is in the works.
Visiting Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said through an interpreter in remarks in Malacañang that his country and the Philippines “are determined to oppose China’s violations” and called on the international community to “strongly condemn” China and demand that Beijing “end its violations and fully, strictly observe” international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC).
Dung said Beijing should “make efforts for the early achievement of the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea.”
