‘Wag daw pa-epal, US: Imee Marcos thinks only China, ASEAN countries should resolve sea row

0 61

Senator Imee Marcos believes the South China Sea dispute is best resolved among China and other countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

This was the Ilocano politiko’s reaction on Tuesday, July 14, after United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said they are considering China’s militarization of the South China Sea as illegal.

“We welcome the recent statement of Secretary Pompeo on the South China Sea. But it is unfortunate that the US is not a member of the UNCLOS,” Marcos said in a Facebook post.

“The ASEAN countries that are involved in this maritime dispute with China must resolve this through every peaceful means and not through threats and intimidation especially from parties that are not party to the UNCLOS,” she added.

The Marcos clan is known to be close with the Chinese government. Alam na this!
