China’s tourism administration has asked all Chinese tourists on organized tours in the Philippines to be back home by May 16th.

On Thursday, the administration published a statement suggesting Chinese tourists suspend travel to the Southeast Asian nation. The statement came after protests were held outside the Chinese embassy in Manila over the Huangyan Island dispute.

China says the month-long island impasse began on April 10th when a Philippine warship harassed Chinese fishermen in waters around Huangyan Island. Attempts to resolve the standoff have yet to be successful.
