MANILA, Philippines – Three Chinese ships are still in Bajo de Masinloc, even after Philippine vessels pulled out of the disputed territory in the waters of Zambales seven months ago, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said they continue to call on China to respect the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone and pull out their ships from the territory.

In his lecture seminar in Baguio City, del Rosario also asked the cadets of the Philippine Military Academy to defend Philippine territories, including the West Philippine Sea. -- Report from DZMM
