Sen. Pacquiao Speaks on PH-China Territorial Dispute over WPS

PACQUIAO – Presidential aspirant and Senator Manny Pacquiao spoke on the West Philippine Sea issue between the Philippines and China.

It’s more than five (5) years now since the arbitral tribunal gave its decision on the territorial dispute between the Philippines and China over the West Philippine Sea. The tribunal sided with PH.

However, despite the ruling of the tribunal, China continues pushing its claims over the disputed waters. The presence of Chinese vessels in the said territory was spotted in countless instances. It gained different reactions from the Filipinos.

Recently, an Election 2022 presidential aspirant, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, revealed his stand on the territorial dispute between the Philippines and China over the West Philippine Sea.

Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, speaking to the people during his visit to the CARAGA region, Sen. Manny Pacquiao expressed that the Philippines should fight for its rights over the West Philippine Sea but in a diplomatic way. According to him, the country cannot match China in a fight but problems can be resolved in peace talks.

In case China would attempt to enter the Philippines, the boxer-turned-senator expressed that the Philippines should not allow it and must do everything for the country.

Sen. Pacquiao confirmed his desire to run for president a few days before the period set by the Commission on Election (Comelec) for the filing of candidacy for Election 2022. Shortly after it, he announced his retirement from boxing.

The Senator who’s already known with his helping hand to people stressed that he can help more people if he wins president because the government has a bigger budget compared to his personal wealth. He is running with former Manila Mayor Lito Atienza.
