• CONCERNING THE MARITIME DISPUTE
    OF THE PHILIPPINES AND CHINA


    China’s 9-dash line claim of indisputable sovereignty over 90% of the South China Sea violates the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and robs the Philippines of 80% of its Exclusive Economic Zone and 100% of its Extended Continental Shelf.

    Interview with Prof. JOSE MARIA SISON
    Founding Chairman, Communist Party of the Philippines

Liberation International, April 23, 2014

    1. Why do you support the Philippine reactionary state in invoking  the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and pursuing an arbitration case against China  before the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), particularly in the Arbitral Tribunal based in The Hague?

    JMS:  What I support  is not so much the Philippine reactionary state as the invocation of  the UNCLOS and upholding the sovereign rights of the Philippines and the Filipino people over the 200-nautical mile  exclusive economic zone (EEZ)  as well as the extended continental shelf (ECS) in another 150  nautical miles from the outer limits of the EEZ.  Thus, I have urged the Philippine government to act promptly on the matter.

    1.  From a previous position of  exercising the right to national self-determination, to the extent of  fighting to secede from the Philippine state, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has surrendered itself to the sovereignty, constitution and constitutional processes of said state and has opted for regional autonomy under the Philippine state.  Is that true?
