Harry Roque: We’ll have to thank China for those artificial islands

Sabog ka na naman at makulit.

Darating ang panahon na pasasalamatan ng Pilipinas ang China dahil sa mga itinayong artificial islands nito sa West Philippine Sea.

Ito ang iginiit ni Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque kasunod ng mga panibagong ulat ng construction ng China sa mga pinag-aagawang isla.

“There will come a time when China’s might has ceased, when we will have to thank them for those islands,” ani Roque.

“Clearly, eventually, those artificial islands will be ours if we can ask China to leave,” dagdag pa ni Roque.

‘Irreversibly damaged’

Sa kasagsagan ng oral arguments sa The Hague, ipinaliwanag ni dating Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario ang pinsala ng konstruksyon ng China ng mga artificial islands sa marine life.

“China has irreversibly damaged the regional marine environment, in breach of UNCLOS, by its destruction of coral reefs in the South China Sea, including areas within the Philippines’ EEZ, by its destructive and hazardous fishing practices, and by its harvesting of endangered species,” ani Del Rosario.

Ayon sa datos noon ng DFA, nasa P4.45 billion ang halaga ng pinsala ng reclamation activities ng China sa West Philippine Sea.

Ito rin ang naging batayan ng The Hague upang ipawalang-bisa ang claim ng China sa pinag-aagawang teritoryo.
