According to Xinhua, “the latest ruling by [the] international tribunal in The Hague regarding the South China Sea seemed to be a positive result for Manila but in a sense it also reflects the Philippines’ role as a fickle player on the world stage and its lack of vision in handling such disputes.”

It adds that, “Despite its agreement with Beijing to resolve their disputes in South China Sea via bilateral talks, which could be testified by several joint statements and declarations, Manila readily reneges on its promises and takes every chance to make waves in the South China Sea.”

The news agency also claims that “The Philippines has staged a string of stunts to generate generate publicity and rake up support for its South China Sea claim.” It also calls the Philippines’ accusation of bullying, a “Bag of tricks shamefully disseminating such unwarranted allegations, and tirelessly courting external powers for patronage.”

“Bullying: A bag of tricks shamefully disseminating such unwarranted allegations, and tirelessly courting external powers for patronage.”

Xinhua strongly iterates that “it will not accept nor get involved in these proceedings initiated unilaterally by the Philippines” and that it doesn’t recognize the Permanent Court of Arbitration’s jurisdiction over the South China Sea dispute because “The case basically revolves around territorial sovereignty… which is beyond the UNCLOS.”
