    Our Philippine government should do the same. block these companies from doing business locally. if we let them continue their business locally, we're basically accepting their activities on our islands.

    ^ surprisingly, dfa head teddy locsin echoed the same idea yesterday (or was it today). a far cry from what he's been declaring for the past 4 years.

    could it be possible that he's distancing himself from all the inept madness that's been happening all around him? maybe he knows something we don't.

    Senators back proposal to end contracts with Chinese firms involved in West Philippine Sea reclamation | Philstar.com


    MANILA, Philippines ó Two senators on Friday backed the country's top diplomat after he urged concerned government agencies to terminate contracts with Chinese companies involved in island-building activities in the West Philippine Sea.

    Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teodoro Locsin Jr. made the suggestion in response to the decision of the United States to blacklist 24 state-owned firms for taking part in militarizing features in the disputed South China Sea, including the West Philippine Sea.

    "If I find that any of those companies are doing business with us then I would strongly recommend terminating the relationship with that company," Locsin told CNN Philippines during an interview.



    Sen. Ping Lacson, who chairs the Senate Committee on National Defense and Security, said the statement from Locsin was a "long time coming" from the country's top diplomat, according to a a report from The STAR.

    "China's display of arrogance by accusing us of infringing on its sovereignty and security by sending military aircraft into air space adjacent to Panatag Shoal/Bajo de Masinloc, urging the Philippines to immediately stop illegal provocations tops it all," he added.


    Lacson earlier on Friday also took to Twitter to express his support, offering kudos to Locsin for "putting the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman in his place."


    "Banning us from sending our military aircrafts into airspace near Panatag Shoal surely deserves a strong rebuke. Iím proud that our top foreign policy implementor did it," he added.

    Sen. Francis Tolentino, who sits as the vice chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, similarly backed Locsin's suggestion but caveated his support on the chief executive's approval.

    "As long as the decision of the [Department of Foreign Affairs] is in line with the presidentís independent foreign policy pivot, I truly support the same. It is about time we truly assert our sovereign claims in the West Philippine Sea even through diplomatic means," Tolentino said.

    While the senator expressed gratitude towards America for its support, he said the DFA's proposal "should be grounded not because of the recent US pronouncement but because it is in accord with our highest national interests." ó with reports from Patricia Lourdes Viray and The STAR's Paolo Romero
