菲称陆首度水柱驱赶黄岩岛菲船

news.sina.com 2014年02月24日 00:34 中央社即时

  (中央社马尼拉24日综合外电报导)法新社报导,菲律宾军方首长今天指控中国大陆海警在具主权争议的黄岩岛,首度发射强力水柱驱赶菲律宾渔民。

  包蒂斯塔上将(Emmanuel Bautista)说,中国大陆船隻1月27日在黄岩岛(Scarborough Shoal)附近发射水柱,驱赶菲律宾渔船。位于南海的黄岩岛,涉及主权争议。

  包蒂斯塔对菲律宾外籍记者协会说:「中国海警试图驱赶菲律宾渔船,甚至动用强力水柱。」

  他没说有没有人受伤。他说,黄岩岛持续有中国大陆武装海警及其他船隻。

  法新社还无法取得大陆在此大使馆发言人置评。

  黄岩岛距菲律宾主岛吕宋岛220公里。距最近的中国领土海南岛约650公里。

  菲律宾2012年4月与中国大陆在丰富渔区黄岩岛紧张对峙,结果菲律宾退出黄岩岛。大陆自此占领黄岩岛。

  宣示拥有南海主权的包括菲律宾、文莱、马来西亚、越南和台湾。(译者:中央社罗苑韶)1030224

Philippines says China fired water cannon at disputed shoal

February 24, 2014, 6:39 pm
Manila (AFP) - The Philippines' military chief on Monday accused China's coast guard of firing water cannons at Filipino fishermen for the first time to drive them away from a disputed sea shoal.

General Emmanuel Bautista said Chinese vessels fired cannon on January 27 near Scarborough Shoal -- the subject of a bitter territorial row in the strategically important South China Sea.

"The Chinese coast guard tried to drive away Filipino fishing vessels to the extent of using water cannon," Bautista told a forum of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines.

He did not say if anyone was hurt and added that China continues to maintain an armed coast guard and other vessels at the shoal.

Chinese embassy spokesmen could not be contacted for comment.

Scarborough Shoal lies 220 kilometres (135 miles) off the main Philippine island of Luzon. It is about 650 kilometres from Hainan island, the nearest major Chinese land mass.

In April 2012, the Philippines and China had a tense standoff which ended with the former retreating from the shoal -- a rich fishing area.

China has occupied the shoal as part of its claim to most of the South China Sea including waters near the coasts of its neighbours.

The Philippines, along with Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam also have competing claims to parts of the sea, and the rivalries have been a source of tension for decades.

The South China Sea is one of the world's most important waterways as it is home to vital shipping lanes and is believed to sit atop lucrative deposits of natural resources.

Last year, Manila asked a United Nations arbitration tribunal to rule on the validity of China's claim to most of the sea, but Beijing has refused to be part of the process.

"We continue to give primacy to its (the dispute's) peaceful resolution principally through international arbitration," Bautista said.

"All our actions are in support to that. We remain hopeful that the issue can be resolved peacefully and result in peace and stability in the region."

He added too that "our resolve to perform our mandate as protectors of the people and the state and of our national territory" had not been weakened.

"We will continue to perform that mandate with whatever we've got," he said, adding that the country was in the first phase of modernising its poorly-equipped armed forces.

菲:中國海警在黃岩島以水柱驅趕菲漁民
發表於 2014-02-24


菲律賓參謀總長包蒂斯塔(Emmanuel Bautista)今天(24日)指控中國海警船1月27日首度向菲律賓漁民發射強力水柱,將他們驅離南海黃岩島(Scarborough Shoal)。

法新社報道,包蒂斯塔是在菲律賓外國記者協會(Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines)的一項論壇上提及此事;他沒有說明是否有人受傷,但表示,中國持續在黃岩島留駐1艘有武裝的海警船和其他船隻。

包蒂斯塔說,菲律賓方面將繼續尋求透過國際仲裁,以和平方式解決黃岩島主權爭議,促成區域和平穩定;馬尼拉也決心落實保護人民、國家和國家主權的使命,不會有所鬆動。

截至目前,仍無法聯繫中國大陸駐菲律賓大使館發言人,對包蒂斯塔的說法置評。

黃岩島擁有豐富的漁類資源,位於菲律賓主要島嶼呂宋島(Luzon)外海220公里處,距離中國海南島約650公里。北京與馬尼拉都宣稱擁有這座島礁的主權。

2012年4月,菲律賓與中國在黃岩島發生海上對峙,後來馬尼拉方面撤回相關船隻,才結束緊張情勢。

China says unaware of water cannon incident
Reuters
Posted at 02/24/2014 6:52 PM | Updated as of 02/24/2014 7:00 PM

BEIJING - China said on Monday that it was unaware of water cannon use by a Chinese coastguard ship on Filipino fishermen.

Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Emmanuel Bautista on Monday said a Chinese vessel on January 27 used water cannon to drive Filipino fishermen out of disputed waters in the South China Sea.

China has since the beginning of the year required foreign fishing boats to get approval before entering waters that China claims as its own.

"I don't know anything about the specific situation that you just mentioned, but I want to emphasize that China has indisputable sovereignty over the Spratly Islands and their surrounding maritime territory. The relevant Chinese maritime forces are also carrying out normal official patrols in that area," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

China claims about 90 percent of the South China Sea's 3.5 million sq km (1.35 million sq mile) waters. The sea provides 10 percent of the global fish catch, carries $5 trillion in ship-borne trade a year and is believed to be rich in energy.

Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and Vietnam also claim parts of the sea.

The Philippines has taken its dispute with China to arbitration under the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea but China is refusing to participate in the case.

菲要华解释水枪打渔民 中方:黄岩岛是中国领土

2014-02-26 02:35 环球时报

  【环球时报综合报道】菲律宾政府25日将“中国海警船用高压水枪驱赶菲渔民”事件推向国际舆论的前沿。继前一天由军方爆料中国海警船上月27日用高压水枪驱赶在黄岩岛附近海域活动的菲渔船后,25日,菲律宾总统阿基诺三世、外交部纷纷出动,召见中国驻菲使馆官员提出交涉,要求中国就事件过程作出解释。中国外交部发言人华春莹25日就此表示,中方不接受菲方的交涉。黄岩岛是中国固有领土。中国政府公务船一直在黄岩岛海域值守,以维护中国主权,并依法维护该海域正常秩序。厦门大学学者庄国土25日告诉《环球时报》,菲律宾政府此次发布这一消息的时间地点环环相扣,就是要通过国际媒体制造“中国以大欺小”的舆论氛围,为下月将南海问题提交国际法庭做铺垫。

  “菲律宾抗议中国的水枪攻击”、“中国被指责用水枪攻击菲渔民”,美联社、英国广播公司(BBC)25日纷纷引述菲律宾政府的表态报道了这一事件。法新社25日称,菲总统阿基诺三世当天要求中方对此事件作出解释,他称,马尼拉将通过外交渠道向中国发出信息,询问整个事件的来龙去脉以及中国的意图。“菲律宾目前要做的是,查看水枪事件是否已经成为中国的标准操作程序”,他在宿务市的电视新闻发布会上说:“如果这起事件只是那艘特定的(中国)海岸警船船长发出的命令,我们不会作出这样的反应。”

  或许是为了佐证总统的言论,菲律宾外交部发言人赫尔南德斯25日在新闻发布会上说,这并非单一事件,根据该部门掌握的消息,去年至少发生过9起菲渔民在这一海域遭中国政府船骚扰事件。他称,中国驻菲大使馆临时代办孙向阳被菲方召见,聆听菲方对于中国禁止菲律宾渔民在黄岩岛捕鱼的“强烈抗议”。赫尔南德斯还称,菲律宾渔民只不过是在黄岩岛附近海域躲避糟糕的天气,14艘菲渔船中的两艘当时距黄岩岛仅三四十米,一艘舷号为3063的中国海警船“不断吹喇叭,然后用高压水枪泼洒菲律宾渔船”,“我们呼吁中方尊重我们的主权和渔民的权益。这些行为和事件肯定会激化地区紧张局势,并进一步威胁地区的和平与稳定。”法新社25日还引述他的话称,已经数不清多少次就类似事件向中国提出书面或口头抗议。《菲律宾星报》25日称,中国对菲律宾渔民使用水枪是“软弱的表现”。美联社25日还采访了亲历该事件的菲渔民,听其讲述中国执法船的“粗鲁”行为。

  华春莹25日表示,对于黄岩岛海域的外国船只,中国公务船一直在正当和合理的限度内进行管理。同时,对有关国家的挑衅行为,中方不得不做出必要的反应。中方要求菲方切实尊重中国主权,不要挑起新的事端。

  厦门大学南洋研究院院长庄国土25日接受《环球时报》记者采访时认为,菲律宾方面从披露、炒作再到与中国进行外交交涉,整个事件都是设计好的,各种动作“环环相扣”。首先,据菲方所称,该事件发生在1月27日,菲方为什么不先与中国进行交涉,而是时隔一个月后通过军方人员在驻菲外国记者协会论坛这样一种场合发布信息,这显然是企图通过国际媒体,制造“中国以大欺小”的舆论。再次,退一步说,即使菲方所称属实,这在海上执法中也是一种平和的手段,是否对菲律宾渔船造成损害,是否对菲渔民造成伤害显而易见,因为如果遭受损害,菲方肯定在第一时间就报道出来。另外,按照通常做法,面对非法船只,执法船一般都会采取先警示再驱离的程序,中国方面肯定是采取了警示措施,无效后才予以驱离。

  几乎所有的国际媒体25日在报道该事件时都提到了一个背景:从今年年初开始,中国开始要求外国渔船在进入其所宣称的领海时提前获得许可,这涉及90%的南海海域。菲外交部25日再次确认,将于3月30日向国际海洋法庭提交对中国的诉讼文件。庄国土表示,菲政府及军方高级官员最近多次在接受外媒采访时都提到将南海问题上诉至国际法庭仲裁,也是为赢得更多的国际舆论支持制造声势。

中国周三指责菲律宾在南海有争议水域的事件上“蓄意挑衅”,此前菲律宾对中国海警船在黄岩岛附近海域用高压水枪驱赶菲律宾渔民提出抗议。


中国外交部不接受菲方的交涉,称中国公务船有权在本国主权范围内内对“挑衅”行为作出反应。


中国外交部发言人华春莹在例行记者会上表示,“近来,菲律宾大量的渔船频繁出现在黄岩岛的海域,从我们掌握的现场情况看,有些渔船并没有真正的在进行打渔作业而是寻机滞留,并且对中国政府公务船的喊话劝离置之不理,船上的人员甚至摆出了一副要打架的姿态来进行挑衅。”


华春莹称,“菲方有关船只的活动显示出了很强的组织性和对抗性,因此中方有充分的理由怀疑菲方这些船只的真实身份和真实目的。”


“对于这一性质严重的挑衅行为,中方保持了最大的克制,在反复劝告无效的情况下,迫不得已采取了最低限度的执法驱离的手段,没有对菲方的船只和人员造成任何的伤害,”华春莹说道。


她并称,菲方不仅在黄岩岛加大了挑衅的力度,在南沙海域也没有停止过武力袭扰中国渔船的行为,今年1月还在该海域用军舰抓扣了中方多艘小艇。


“菲方拿中国政府公务船的正当执法活动大做文章完全是为其侵权挑衅活动作掩护,那么这个纯粹是一种贼喊捉贼的行为,”华春莹称,“对于这种无理取闹,中国政府绝对不会容忍。”

The Philippine military should not send Navy vessels to the disputed seas to avoid further confrontation with China, a lawyer said.

Harry Roque, University of the Philippines associate professor who teaches international law, said the country should avoid further antagonizing the Asian giant to ensure that all Philippine moves are under the rule of law.

"I don't think we should send Navy vessels to the disputed area because it will be seen as an act of war," Roque said Thursday on ANC's Headstart.

"Let's not further antagonize China. We should be cautious. Mainit na nga, dapat kalmado lang tayo. Let's adhere to rule of law," he added.

Early this month, US naval operations chief Adm. Jonathan Greenert said US forces were ready to help the Philippines in the event of a Chinese invasion of Pag-Asa, the second largest island in the disputed Spratlys.

Greenert did not specify the form of assistance the US was prepared to extend to the Philippines, but noted that the two countries have an existing defense treaty.

President Benigno Aquino III on Thursday left for his two-day state visit in Malaysia, which he praised for being an ally of the country in the South China Sea disputes.

The Philippines and Malaysia are among the Asian countries that are locked in a territorial dispute with China, which is pressing its "indisputable sovereignty" over the entire South China Sea through its nine-dash-line claim.

菲军秀强硬:时机来到时将毫不犹豫对抗中国
2014-02-27 08:03 环球时报


【菲为坐沉仁爱礁登陆舰空投补给】

  【环球时报记者 刘德】当地时间25日下午,菲律宾军方发言人宣布,为进一步加强对外防御,菲军已把斯卡伯勒浅滩(即中国黄岩岛)置于西部军区管辖下。与此同时,菲军方还不忘口头上展示强硬——“当时机到来时”,菲军将对中国进行军事回应。

  据《菲律宾每日问询者报》25日报道,菲军发言人雷蒙·萨加拉中校当天对媒体表示:“把黄岩岛置于西部军区管辖之下,是为了提升我国的对外防御能力,该项能力提升目前正集中于西部军区。这便于统一行动和统一指挥。”他还表示,“西部军区有必要的军事设施以应付领土防御和监视,他们有飞机能飞往所有这些地区上空进行侦察”。

  萨加拉强调,外部防御事务是西部军区的“核心能力”。据他透露,菲武装部队总参谋长埃曼努埃尔·包蒂斯塔上将于上周签署了这一命令。西部军区的责任区包括巴拉望岛和南沙群岛。此外,西部军区还拥有仁爱礁的“管辖权”。

  25日的记者会上,萨加拉还声称,上个月中国“骚扰”菲渔民时菲军没有授权作出军事回应,但“当时机到来时”,菲武装部队将毫不犹豫地采取行动保护菲民众。

The Philippines on Thursday called on Malaysia, Vietnam and other claimants to join its legal challenge to China's massive territorial claim in the South China Sea.

In a bold step, Filipino officials took their territorial disputes with China to international arbitration in January last year after Chinese government ships took control of a disputed shoal off the northwestern Philippines.

They asked the tribunal to declare China's claim to about 80 percent of the strategic waters and Beijing's seizure of eight South China Sea shoals and reefs illegal. China has ignored the legal challenge but the tribunal has proceeded and asked the Philippines to submit its legal arguments and evidence by March 30.

The Philippines chief lawyer, Solicitor-General Francis Jardeleza, said Malaysia, Vietnam and two other governments could either take part in the Philippine case or file their own complaints against China. Smaller countries, he said, can only have a chance to peacefully defend their territories against the Asian superpower in a legal arena.

"Where can the weak go?" Jardeleza asked in a Manila forum on the territorial disputes.

"We are here to prove that from the point of view of the rule of law, all of the actions and all of the claims of China are ... invalid."


Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1


China, Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam have overlapping claims across the busy South China Sea. The disputes have periodically erupted into dangerous confrontations, sparking tensions and straining ties.

Law professor Raul Pangalangan told the forum that the Philippines wanted China to explain the limits and basis of its vast claims. China, Jardeleza said, could still change its mind and join the arbitration, which would take at least two years to conclude.

China has asked the other claimants to settle the disputes through one-on-one negotiations, something that would give it advantage because of its sheer size and clout. It has also warned Washington not to get involved.

The Philippines may include recent aggressive Chinese acts in its complaint, including what it said was the firing of a water cannon by a Chinese coast guard ship to drive away Filipino fishermen from the disputed Scarborough Shoal on Jan. 27, Jardeleza said.

China has controlled the shoal since Philippine vessels backed off from a tense standoff there in 2012. Chinese coast guard and surveillance ships have guarded the territory and chased away Filipino fishermen if they ventured close.

After the Philippines raised the Jan. 27 incident publicly, the Chinese Embassy in Manila responded that Beijing "has indisputable sovereignty over South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters," Scarborough Shoal included.

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines yesterday called on Malaysia, Vietnam and other claimants to join its legal challenge to China’s massive territorial claim in the South China Sea.

In a bold step, Filipino officials took their territorial disputes with China to international arbitration in January last year after Chinese government ships took control of Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal off Zambales.

They asked the international tribunal to declare China’s claim to about 80 percent of the strategic waters and Beijing’s seizure of eight South China Sea and West Philippine Sea shoals and reefs illegal. China has ignored the legal challenge but the tribunal has proceeded and asked the Philippines to submit its “memorial” or legal arguments and evidence by March 30.

Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza said Malaysia, Vietnam and two other governments could either take part in the Philippine case or file their own complaints against China.

Smaller countries, he said, can only have a chance to peacefully defend their territories against the Asian superpower in a legal arena.

“Where can the weak go?” Jardeleza asked in a forum on the territorial disputes.

“We are here to prove that from the point of view of the rule of law, all of the actions and all of the claims of China are ... invalid.”

China, Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam have overlapping claims across the busy South China Sea.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said yesterday the Philippines “is working with full resolve” to submit the memorial or written argument on its case to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) on or before March 30.

“Our fishermen have all the rights to fish in that area in Bajo de Masinloc. Bajo de Masinloc is an integral part of the Philippine territory and we are entitled to the resources there and Bajo de Masinloc is also where we exercise sovereignty, sovereign rights and jurisdiction over that area,” DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said. Bajo de Masinloc is the local name of Panatag Shoal.

“When we decided to bring the nine-dash line to arbitral tribunal it was based on our assessment of our national interest. Other countries will also have to make a decision on this based on the assessment of their national interest and we will respect their decision on this,” Hernandez said.

The disputes have periodically erupted into dangerous confrontations, sparking tensions and straining ties.

Law professor Raul Pangalangan told the forum that the Philippines wanted China to explain the limits and basis of its vast claims.

China, Jardeleza said, could still change its mind and join the arbitration, which would take at least two years to conclude.

China has asked the other claimants to settle the disputes through one-on-one negotiations, something that would give it advantage because of its sheer size and clout. It has also warned Washington not to get involved.

The Philippines may include recent aggressive Chinese acts in its complaint, including what it said was the firing of a water cannon by a Chinese coast guard ship to drive away Filipino fishermen from Panatag Shoal on Jan. 27, Jardeleza said.

China has controlled the shoal since Philippine vessels backed off from a tense standoff there in 2012. Chinese coast guard and surveillance ships have guarded the territory and chased away Filipino fishermen if they ventured close to the shoal.

After the Philippines raised the Jan. 27 incident publicly, the Chinese embassy in Manila responded that Beijing “has indisputable sovereignty over South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters,” Panatag Shoal included.

No order for deployment

As China vows to continue enforcing its maritime rules in the West Philippine Sea, Malacañang clarified it has not ordered the deployment of cost guard vessels to Panatag Shoal.

Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte told reporters in a press briefing yesterday it would be up to the Department of National Defense to make a decision whether to send vessels to Panatag. The PCG, a civilian entity, is under the Department of Transportation and Communications.

“None that I know of, in specifics,” Valte said when asked if there is a Palace directive on the matter. “I understand that the secretary of national defense has already spoken of the approach that they have adopted. But the military will be in a better position to give you the details on that particular approach.”

Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin on Thursday said a “white on white” response to China’s continued aggression may be needed to assert the Philippines’ rights without heightening tensions in the region.

“In case CCG (Chinese Coast Guard) vessel will persist (in using) water cannon, our response should be calibrated, where we will have the Philippine Coast Guard so as to maintain ‘white on white’ response and not to heighten the tension,” the defense chief said, referring to the internationally accepted color of coast guard ships.

The PCG, through spokesman Armand Balilo, said Thursday it would be up to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Malacañang to decide whether to allow the deployment of Coast Guard personnel to Panatag Shoal.

“The Coast Guard has been on constant patrol, but given the size of the country, as well as our geographic formation plus – vis-à-vis the resources that we have, they cannot admittedly do this, they patrol to the best of what they have and to the best of their abilities, but given limitations, I think it’s quite obvious that they cannot surround the entire country at the same time,” Valte said.

Valte said the situation “varies on a day to day basis” and the PCG would know when or where to deploy vessels.

Told that it was from the DFA or Malacañang that the PCG was willing to take orders regarding any deployment due to the political nature of the problem, Valte said: “Balilo was correct when he said that yes, we are pursuing diplomatic solutions to this, and that all the agencies that are involved are working hand in hand to at least have a consistent policy, because of the decision that we’ve made to pursue dispute resolution peacefully.”

More condemnation

Valenzuela City Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian joined the chorus of condemnation of China’s water cannon attack on Filipino fishermen at Panatag Shoal.

He said the “act of harassment” by China’s coast guard violated the 2007 China-Philippines Memorandum of Understanding on Broadening and Deepening Agriculture and Fisheries Cooperation.

“The use of water cañons to drive away Filipino fishermen in the disputed Bajo de Masinloc technically is a violation of the 2007 fishery agreement, which allows shared cooperation and joint management of marine resources in the West Philippine Sea,” he said.

“China’s use of force against our fishermen is simply unacceptable. Its continued aggression is creating instability in the region. They should submit to the arbitration case the Philippines filed before the United Nations,” he said.

Gatchalian called on China to follow the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, to which it is a signatory.

He said signatory-nations are required to resolve disputes via an arbitration process.

China signed the convention in 1996, more than a decade after the Philippines signed it in 1984.

At the same time, the former Valenzuela City mayor urged members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to strengthen security cooperation among themselves amid China’s increasing aggressiveness in pursuing its territorial claim over the entire South China Sea.

He said such cooperation could be in the form of joint military exercises, intelligence exchange and consultations.

“We should strengthen our defense cooperation with other ASEAN nations. Acting as a group will give the ASEAN more leverage against China’s aggression,” he said.

“One country alone may not be enough to dampen China’s efforts in pushing for its claims. It is time for the ASEAN member-states to stand together and put aside differences,” he said.

The Chinese embassy has defended the water cannon attack on Filipino fishermen, saying Panatag Shoal is part of China’s territory even if it is at least 550 miles away from Hainan island, the closest Chinese landmass, compared to its mere 124-mile distance from Zambales.

“This puts the shoal under the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone following the UNCLOS, which gives the country the right over its economic resources,” Gatchalian said.

He said China’s claim over a rock formation that is much closer to the Philippines than to the nearest Chinese island is absurd and is not defensible before an arbitration tribunal. The militant fisherfolk alliance Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) also denounced China for its hostile acts on Jan. 27, saying Panatag Shoal “legally, politically, geographically belongs to Filipino people, and this is a fact and not a bluff.” – Aurea Calica, Pia Lee-Brago, Jess Diaz, Michelle Zoleta, AP
