Overflights by unidentified aircraft, China trying to establish rules

Del Rosario added he has been informed that two unidentified aircraft flew over the area around midnight last night, and another aircraft, again at 1:25 a.m.

But he said “there is no harassment and the situation is normal” in the area.

Del Rosario said that together with Chinese incursion into the Reed Bank last year, this recent incident at the Scarborough Shoal makes it appear that “China is trying to establish rules” in the region, as both the Reed Bank and the Scarborough Shoal are clearly part of the Philippines.

He said that China appears to be trying to establish its sovereignty and sovereign rights over all of the South China China, which are “baseless.”

“Clearly, they have no basis for doing this…We have invited them to UNCLOS and they refused,” he said.
