“The Press Release will be in English and French, with an unofficial Mandarin Chinese translation provided,” said the court.

The Philippines filed an arbitration case on January 22, 2013, before the PCA to question China’s massive claim of waters in the South China Sea, believed to be rich in oil and gas.

China, on February 19, 2013, refused to be a party to the case. It has maintained over the last three years that it will not abide by the arbitration court’s ruling.  SFM
