He hasn't been but people are egging him on. That would be like a chicken running around with its head cut off. If you can find on you tube that video Cayetano explaining the situation, you'll find it very interesting. It's very complex issue, and all claimants have to tread slowly and carefully. That includes China. They know they don't stack up against the US militarily.

So a lot of people got fooled with that FAKE NEWS! If you read back a few pages it says that the 2 US lawmakers were WORRIED about China building a structure in Panatag.. Worried lang pa lang sila.. Pagdating sa balita sa atin, yung worry nila naging totoo na! Lol! I would like to know which media outlet published it first at doon mo malaman kung may credibility ba yang news outlet na yan! Lol!

Sana next time mag worry itong mga americans na baka mabuntis itong si Leni.. para tingnan natin sa news at baka ang balita kinabukasan ay nanganak na si Leni! LOL!

The terms and conditions for the exercise of such rights and activities, including the nature, the extent and the areas to which they apply, shall, at the request of any of the States concerned, be regulated by bilateral agreements between them. Such rights shall not be transferred to or shared with third States or their nationals.
Thank you for responding. Your response brings more questions:
  1. From your quoted article, it talks about "agreements". Does an agreement already exist between the PHL and China?
  2. On the wording "traditional fishing rights". Why did China prevented our fishermen from fishing in the Bajo de Masinloc before? Does that mean we don't have the "traditional fishing rights" and they do?
  3. When China implemented their ban of Pinoy fishermen, did we have a bilateral agreement already that they think they have the right to implement their rules?

1. The award focused on the word "Traditional fishing rights" (not fishing rights of China but fishing rights of fishermen) and not the agreement, since there is no agreement between PH and China.

2. That is actually the violation stated in the award. China violated our sovereign rights on our EEZ.
