People's Republic of China v. Philippines

February 25, 2018

There was intense tribunal yesterday in the International Court of Justice over claims of territories in the South China Sea between the People's Republic of China and the Philippines. The advocate for China argued there was no jurisdiction of the tribunal in these territory claims while the advocate for the Philippines argued China is falsely claiming the territories as islands when they cannot actually sustain life. The Philippines also claim they have precedence in the use of these waterways since the waterways are essential to their economic vitality.
