DND: Ignore Chinese

'war-mongerlng
Paizibugan and Jerry E. Esplanada

By Dona Z.

THE DEPARTMENT of National Defense' (DND) has opted to ignore the war-mongering comments of a Chinesemilitary general who called for "decisive action" by China against the Philippines in the dispute over the Panatag Shoal (Scarborough Shoal).
Without addressing Maj. Gen. Luo Yuan of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China, DND spokesperson Peter Galvez said people should be "more circumspect" in their comments on the issue,' stressing that the Philippines wanted a peaceful resolution to the dispute. ' "We cannot make an official statement based on opinions, especially commentaries," Galvez told reporters on Monday. "It would really be hard to comment. That is his opinion. We respect his (opinion) but as for the department, it would not be proper for us to make statements," he added. In a commentary posted on Friday on China.org.cn, Luo

affairs office, relayed to the Philippine embassy in Beijing its official position on the issue. . In a statement posted on its website, the ministry said China "demands that the Philippines respects the sovereignty of Chinese territory and does nothing more to aggravate or complicate the situation further." It asserted that "Scarborough Shoal is an integrative part ofChinese tenitory," 'adding that the Philippine government's proposal to bring the issue to Itlos "contravenes the fundamental principles of international relations and also inflicts serious damage on the current international order." China claims the entire South China Sea as part of its territory, even waters close to the Philippines, Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries. Zhang Hua, the Chinese embassy spokesperson, had earlier told the INQUIRER Beijing's that decision not to bring the conflict to Itlos was final. Zhang insisted that the shoal; which China calls Huangyan Island, "is China's inherent terri-

tory on which we have sufficient legal basis." The Philippines, on the other hand, refers to the Scarborough Shoal as Bajo de Masinloc and Panatag Shoal, and insists it belongs to the country; In a text message, Zhang said Manila should "fully respect China's sovereignty." . .

Don't complicate things

He said the Philippine governrnent must "commit to the con.sensus we reached on settling the incident through friendly diplomatic consultations, and not to complicate or aggravate this incident so that peace and stability in that area can be reached." Raul Hernandez, the DFA spokesperson, had told reporters that "hopefully, the impasse would be' resolved as quickly as possible with discussions with the Chinese side." .If the Chinese side insisted on not going to Itlos, he said they were "prepared to do it alone.". Last week, talks between the two sides ended in a stalemate, 'according to the DFA.

On Wednesday, DFA Assistant Secretary for Asia and Pacific Affairs Ma. Theresa Lazaro handed over a note verbale to Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Ma Keqing during a meeting at DFAheadquarters in Pasay City. The DFA"noted with concern the Chinese statement that they have become more assertive because the Philippines allegedly broke an agreement on the pullout of the (Philippine and Chinese) ships and fishing boats (from the shoal)." ' It pointed out "there has never been an agreement reached." "The DFAis of the view that it was unfortunate that the Chinese response was based on inaccurate appreciation of the facts and dynamics of the negotiations," it said .: The DFA informed the Chinese embassy that in order to address the impasse and to avoid future misunderstandings, the dialogue between the two governments must be based on complete trust and the confi-' dence that information must 'be an accurate rendition of facts.

AFP OFFICERS
THE Philippine military said Sunday it.would put fourseniorspeclal forces officers on mal overa botched mission against Muslim insurgents that lefU9 commandos dead and almost scuppered peace talks. Military prosecutors. found sufficient evidence to warrant the court martial proceedings against a colonel and three lieutenant colonels, the armed forces said in a statement. . "The next step is the arraignment of the accused military personnelin the said case," the military said in a statement, without giving a date. . The four officers are accused of organising a flawed special forces mission to arrest a top Muslim militant in the southern island of Mindanao in October last year. . Investigations by army prosecutors found that half the 41 commandos involved in the operation were unprepared and had been in the area for an unrelated training programme. The soldiers entered thick jungle terrain controlled by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILFj, triggering heavy fighting that killed l~ soldiers .and several rebels. .' . The attack triggered bloody dashes that displaced 20,000 families in the south and led to the near-collapse . of peac-etalks between the government and the MlLF, which has been waging a rebellion since the 1970s.AFP
