The foreign ministries of China and the Philippines have found a ‘way to get along’ by banning new construction in the South China Sea as the two nations seek to enhance bilateral ties.
“The Chinese will not occupy new features in the South China Sea nor are they are going to build structures in Scarborough Shoal,” Philippine Defense Minister Delfin Lorenzana told lawmakers on Tuesday, according to China News Asia. The waters near the shoal are frequented by Philippine fishers, but from 2012 to 2016 China blockaded the area.
The two sides are reportedly collaborating on a commercial arrangement to jointly conduct oil exploration and begin drilling for black gold within 12 months’ time, according to Philippine Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano. Beijing and Hanoi have recently reached heated disagreements over the fate of the Block 136-03 oil and gas field in the South China Sea.
Last week, a prominent Washington-based think tank published satellite imagery demonstrating that while Beijing claims it stopped island reclamation two years ago, in fact new construction been completed in the South China Sea at places like Tree Island over the same time period.
China’s own reclamation work did not end in mid-2015 with the completion of the artificial islands in the Spratlys,” the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative said in an August 9 blog post.
