Gina-tsekyar pa sang Armed Forces of the Philippines’ Western Command ang report nga ginbalabagan sang Chinese Coast Guard ang Philippine Navy vessel nga mapadulong sa Panatag Shoal ukon kilala bilang Scarborough Shoal sadtong Disyembre 8, 2022.
Base sa report gikan sa Stanford University’s Gordian Knot Center (GKC) for National Security Innovation nga may komprontansyon nga natabo sa tunga sang Chinese vessel kag BRP Andres Bonifacio sa West Philippine Sea.
“We will have to check the report. We will get back to you once information is acquired,” suno kay AFP Wescom’s Lieutenant Colonel Isagani Nato.
“Recently, there was a confrontation, about a month ago, between a Chinese coast guard vessel and BRP Andres Bonifacio right by Panatag or Scarborough Shoal. What we can draw from this experience is that Andres Bonifacio, coming from the northeast, [is] coming down towards the direction of Scarborough Shoal. The Chinese coast guard vessel, numbered 3303, identified as unknown because for some reason a couple of days prior to this, swapped numbers but it is the same ship…comes out and puts itself between the Bonifacio and Panatag Shoal,” suno naman kay Raymond Powell, ang retired US Air Force colonel.
“The two ships converge to about 800 meters, they go from north to south, and then eventually, the Bonifacio peels off and returns back to the Philippines,” dugang pa sini.
“As far as I know, this incident was never reported or was never discussed, but we are able to find out about it because there are tools available to us,” suno kay Powell.
Nahibaluan nga si President Bongbong Marcos ang naghiwat sang state visit sa China sa diin nagkitaay kag nagsapol sila ni President Xi Jinping kag ila ginhisugtan nga magpangita sang “compromise” kag “measures” nga maka-benepisyo sa Filipino fishermen sa West Philippine Sea.
