It’s about time that President Benigno Aquino III should convene the National Security Council and discuss China’s bullying.

According to Senator Francis Escudero, the issue over at the West Philippine Sea should be discussed at the NSC because it is the right forum to resolve the territorial dispute between the two countries.

The Senator insisted that the Philippines should continue to push for the arbitration process even if China continues to negate it.

Prior to this, the Department of National Defense confirmed that China is putting up a new air strip and facilities surrounding the “mischief reef.”  (with DZRH Milky Rigonan)
