Philippine President Benigno Aquino III has made public statement to redeploy Philippine vessels and rearrange airplanes to inspect the nearby sea area of Huangyan Island.

Aguino made it clear that if the weather improves, and China does not withdraw vessels from the area, he is going to redeploy Philippine vessels. He is also going to arrange airplanes to inspect the nearby area to determine if any following steps are necessary. Last Saturday, the Philippines withdrew two business vessels due to bad weather and voiced hopes that China would do the same, with no results.

According to a public statement made by Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei this Monday, China will continue its administration and guard over Huangyan Island. Wednesday’s reports from the Philippines’ local channel ABS-CBN said that its air force is going to import 12 South Korean made TA-50 trainer aircrafts, each at a price of 1.25 billion Philippine peso, or 188 million yuan. The delivery is scheduled to be finished next year.
