1st LD: Chinese FM reiterates China's stance on South China Sea arbitration
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday reiterated China's solemn position of non-acceptance of and non-participation in the South China Sea arbitration case unilaterally initiated by the Philippines.
Wang made the remarks while meeting with Federica Mogherini, the European Union's high representative for foreign affairs and security policy.
Wang said that the South China Sea arbitration is a politically manipulated case and China's position is in fact defending the solemnity of international legal system and the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
The disputes between China and the Philippines, he added, should be resolved through dialogue and consultation.
