Philippines should face facts, not to make trouble: Chinese FM

PHNOM PENH, July 12 (Xinhua) — China urges the Philippine side to face the facts about the Huangyan Island incident squarely, and not to make trouble, Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said Thursday at the 19th ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) Foreign Ministers’ Meeting.

In response to the remarks by some individual country on the Huangyan Island incident at the ARF Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, Yang said, “Huangyan Island has always been part of the Chinese territory and is not a disputed island.”

Yang noted that the Chinese people were shocked and surprised by the Huangyan Island incident. The fact is the Philippine side sent a naval vessel to hurt the Chinese fishermen on China’s territory. What they did caused wide concern and strong indignation among the Chinese people.

China urges the Philippine side to face facts squarely and not to make trouble, Yang stressed.

Yang also elaborated on China’s position on the Korean nuclear issue, Myanmar, Syria, and the Iranian nuclear issue at the meeting.

Yang Jiechi arrived in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, on Monday midnight for the week-long ASEAN ministerial level meetings, including the 19th ARF and the 45th ASEAN Foreign Ministers Meeting.
