MANILA, Philippines – China’s  9-dashed line claim to almost the entire West Philippine Sea violates the the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), according to Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio.
Carpio, in a speech before graduates of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila on May 18, said Beijing’s claim takes away the maritime entitlements of the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia to exclusive economic zones and extended continental shelves, which is in gross violation of UNCLOS.
