MANILA, Philippines — Citing the Philippines’ victory in the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague, the United Kingdom, France and Germany rejected China’s expansive claims in the South China Sea.

In a joint note verbale submitted to the United Nations in New York on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila), the three European nations said China’s “historic” claims in the South China Sea do not adhere with international law and with provisions under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). — | via Sean Chan / AdChoiceTV News
