China will respond to the detention of fishermen

According to the Xinhua news agency, at a regular press conference held today, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that China reserves the right to take further action in connection with the detention of the Philippines by Chinese fishermen.

Recall that on May 6, the Philippine maritime police detained 11 Chinese fishermen and their vessel near the Banyu Reef in the South China Sea.

Hua Chuning reaffirmed that China has indisputable sovereign rights to the Nansha Islands and the surrounding area, including the Banyue Reef, where the incident occurred.

The ships of the Chinese maritime police after the incident went to the scene of the incident, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PRC and the Chinese Embassy in the Philippines made representations to the Philippine side.

China demanded that the Philippines immediately release the detained fishermen and ship, ensure the safety of Chinese citizens, their property and ensure that such events will not happen again. In turn, the PRC reserves the right to further action, said Hua Chuning.
