After experiencing mechanical trouble last week, the Philippine Navy’s BRP Laguna has resumed its resupply mission in the Philippine-claimed islands in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) over the weekend, the military said on Thursday.

Captain Cheryl Tindog, spokesperson of the Western Command, said that the BRP Laguna arrived in Pagasa Island (Thitu Island) on Wednesday.

The ship will also make rounds in other Philippine-claimed islands in the Spratlys but Tindog did not disclose details for security reasons.
