Arbitration Court in The Hague supported the position of the Philippines on the suit against China

Welcomed the decision of the Arbitration Court in The Hague on the suit against China in connection with the dispute over the territories in the South China Sea, the head of the Philippine Foreign Ministry Perfecto Yasai

On Tuesday, the Arbitration Court in The Hague ruled that China has no basis for territorial claims in the South China Sea within the "nine-dotted line."

"The Philippines welcomes the decision on the country's lawsuit against China in the dispute over the South China Sea," Agence France-Presse quotes the minister.

He also called on all parties to restraint and prudence, RIA Novosti notes.

In January 2013, the Philippines unilaterally applied to international arbitration to resolve some issues surrounding the territorial dispute in the South China Sea. China initially refused to take part in the proceedings, as it considers the unilateral claim illegal and insists that the court does not have jurisdiction to consider the issue, which concerns the territorial dispute.

The Philippines says it has tried many times to resolve the dispute through negotiations with China, but they failed, so Manila was forced to go to arbitration.
