West Philippine Sea: The Heated Conflict

By EywenLol | eywensblogs | 8 May 2021


Currently the Philippines and China quarrrling about who owns The West Philippine Sea. Now this issue dates back to January 22,2013 where after it was named "West Philippine Sea" China sent paramilitary ships to Scarborough. In response, because of the country's weaker military capabilities, the Philippines resorted to resorted to international law—the great equalizer of nations. In 2013, it filed a case against China at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) concerning maritime questions in the West Philippine Sea.

Surprisingly, a lot of countries supported the Philippines in its case against China. The U.S. and its allies in the European Union such as Germany, France, and the U.K. expressed their support for the decision to take the matter to court. Likewise, Vietnam, Japan, and Australia supported the move, emphasizing that the rule of law shouldprevail over acts of war in resolving disputes. Up to this date the Chinese Government is still arguing that they own the West Philippine Sea.
