The Philippine government will continue drawing global attention to the political and environmental impact of Chinese reclamation activities in disputed territories in the West Philippine Sea.

During a press briefing on Wednesday, presidential spokesman Sec. Edwin Lacierda said this is the administration’s plan while the United Nations arbitration tribunal hears the Philippines’ case questioning Beijing’s massive claim in the South China Sea.

“We have some limitations on our resources. And so what do we do? We use whatever resources that are within our capabilities and we can harness the international community to show the reclamation activities are doing are not only causing some political concerns but also environmental concerns as well,” Lacierda told reporters.

The Palace official maintained that the territorial row is a “concern which extends beyond the country claimants.”
