Senator Bam questions if there is a deal allowing China to put missiles on WPS lands

Senator Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV recently asked the question if there is already a deal that allows China to install military equipment on Philippine claimed islands in the West Philippine Sea.

He said that this issue must be answered during the Senate investigation of the reports that China has installed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems.

It is said that these were installed on Fiery Cross Reef, Subi Reef, and Mischief Reef in Spratly Islands.

Mayroon bang deal na nangyari between China and the Philippines kaya mayroon pong missiles ngayon sa ating teritoryo? O nagulat din ba ang administrasyon noong nalaman na mayroon nang militarization sa mga teritoryong iyon? Sa pagkakaalam ko po walang treaty between the Philippines and China allowing for these troops and military armaments to be in those areas,” he said.



Parang makwe-kwestyon mo yung friendship natin sa China. Hindi po dapat iyan ginagawa ng mga magkakaibigang bansa na bigla-bigla ka na lang lalagyan ng mga missiles doon sa iyong teritoryo,” he added.

Aquino also questioned the real relationship between the Philippines and China, saying that he wonders how the Duterte administration can be so sure that the missiles that were installed would not be used against the Philippines.

Paano po natin alam na hindi yan nakatutok dito? Pangalawa, sa isang pindot lang pwedeng nakatutok na po iyan sa atin,” he said.

Paano natin alam iyon? Was it a verbal agreement between our President and the President of China? Ano yung papeles natin na nagsasabi n’un? Sa pagkakaalam ko kailangan po niyan ng formal treaty sa kahit ano pong usapin ng bases, usapin ng armas, usapin ng foreign military troops, kailangan po niyan ng treaty at kailangan alam po ng taumbayan iyan,” he said.



There should be no secret deals between two countries, especially when it comes to territory, sovereignty and our safety,” he added.

Aquino said he will be filing a resolution a seeking probe into the matter.

We’re filing, either today or tomorrow, a resolution looking into the Chinese bases in our territory. We hope that our proper committee will hear our resolutions here in the Senate at mabigyang linaw po ang taumbayan ukol po sa militarization ng teritoryo po natin,” he said.
