菲律宾众议员指中国欲占中业岛附近沙洲

+ J+ H, I" F$ b/ R8 ~" r* m: k  众议员亚礼汉诺在记者会指出,5艘中国船舰包括驱逐舰、海警船和大型渔船,舰上载有海上民兵,从12日开始,就停留在距中业岛不到3海里的水域。
  c5 h: d5 q: K+ g  n; K0 ~  他指出,这些中方人士可能有占领中业岛以西多座沙洲的不良意图。菲国情报显示,中方船舰数天前还阻挡菲国渔业局船只靠近沙洲。
+ W6 w8 i: V: N& w  中业岛是南沙群岛第2大天然地物,菲律宾声称位于其200海里专属经济海域内,目前由菲方控制,与中方控制的渚碧礁仅有20海里距离。
! D' K* ?' D5 \# Q* O* N# ?6 C  陆战队出身的亚礼汉诺呼吁菲国政府与北京交涉,让中方船舰离开菲国海域,必要时应提出外交抗议。

  洛仁萨那认为,在菲中双方临时安排下,北京应该会维持南海现状。如果中方占领更多岛屿,即使离菲律宾很远,也将是严重问题。% Y  g2 i' O4 G; f: f* A

菲律宾防长:中国保证不会在南海占据新领地
0 @& R2 k! |9 z' I9 x       2017年08月16日菲律宾商报:国防部长洛仁萨那透露,中国和菲律宾都在试图加强双边关系,中国已向菲律宾保证,不会在南中国海占据新领地。
' @: n7 j* W- d% ?% y+ L  外交部长加耶丹诺也说,菲律宾正在探讨与中国联合在南中国海开发油气资源。
& T- [! A6 Z4 D7 ~( f8 ]  洛仁萨那前晚在议会听证会上说,中菲两国已就南中国海问题达成一个“临时协定”,或一种相处方式,即停止占领新的岛屿。 “(菲律宾)外长在南中国海采取保持现状的策略……据他说,中国不会在南中国海占据新领地,也不会在黄岩岛上开展建设工作。”
+ ~7 t3 A& ?- S; Z9 A  不过,当议员引述军方报告称,有五艘中国渔船上周六在南沙群岛由菲律宾控制的中业岛岸外约五公里出现时,洛仁萨那没有置评。
: C9 K( U$ K% @6 Q  i7 J, K" s' r4 d  杜特地总统去年上任以来就一直批评传统盟友美国,同时向中国靠拢,寻求商业合作和投资。杜特地总统与以往的总统不同,他一直避免和中国因南中国海主权问题发生冲突。* h; X0 n. v$ t9 M$ m& a! A
  专家说,中国在这片备受争议的海域建造了七个人造岛屿,其中三个能容纳战斗机,有跑道、雷达和地对空导弹。
: @/ H* `. T8 W. G) s6 B* e# u  众议员亚礼汉诺呼吁政府提出外交抗议,要中国离开菲律宾位于南沙群岛的领土。
" D- O: S  E, V: n, L  W$ ?' y  不过,加耶丹诺前天说,菲律宾正在探讨和中国联合在南中国海开发石油和天然气资源。他表示,任何合作都将依据菲律宾法律,而且不会导致菲律宾失去领土。6 o  h7 ]  \" b1 W8 O5 ?) H6 M
  加耶丹诺指出,杜特地总统不是忽视海牙国际仲裁庭的裁决,而是会在中菲建立互信后才提出来讨论。 “因为我们一直和中国对抗,我们没有机会和他们会谈……我们在法律上赢了,但实际上我们毫无进展。”7 a2 [7 n4 T2 n. }/ ]9 I9 P1 k) X
  中国外长王毅上个月表示,支持中菲合作在南中国海开发能源的提议,并称这是“充满政治智慧”的。他在岷里拉受访时说,单方面发展可能引发紧张局势,对两国造成伤害。/ o, K  p4 ?. O* l* M
