Filipinas retira de un atolón una barrera flotante de China

By Ninian Carter

September 25, 2023 - Filipinas ha retirado una barrera flotante instalada recientemente por botes de la guardia costera china para bloquear el acceso a una importante zona pesquera dentro de un área disputada en el Mar del Sur de China.

The Philippines has removed a floating barrier installed by the Chinese coast guard to block access to a lagoon within Scarborough Shoal – a prime fishing patch in the contested South China Sea.

In images shared by The Philippines, Chinese craft can be clearly seen installing a 300 metre long floating barrier across the only entrance into the atoll, blocking access to Filipino fishing vessels.

The country’s foreign ministry claims the barriers were a violation of international law and threatened the livelihood of their fishermen.

China claims 90% of the South China Sea, overlapping with the exclusive economic zones of Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and the Philippines.
