China’s air force said bombers such as the H-6K had landed and taken off from islands and reefs in the South China Sea as part of training exercises last week, drawing angry reactions from opposition lawmakers in Manila. The United States also sent ships to the disputed areas.
The Department of Foreign Affairs in the Philippines said it was monitoring developments.
“We are taking the appropriate diplomatic action necessary to protect our claims and will continue to do so in the future,” it said in a statement.
“We reiterate our commitment to protect every single inch of our territory and areas which we have sovereign rights over,” the statement said.
