Philippine President Benigno Aquino has met with his Cabinet to discuss its relations with China. According to earlier local reports, the President wanted different sectors of his cabinet to come together and unite their voice to discuss broader issues relating to its ties with China.

He said he hoped all government departments consider national interests when it comes to the South China Sea dispute. The stand-off between China and the Philippines began in early April when Philippine forces spotted Chinese boats fishing in the area.

Over the past few months, China has imposed travel bans to the Philippines and has halted the import of bananas from the country. China has repeatedly asked the Philippines not to escalate tensions in the South China Sea, saying China has indisputable sovereignty over Huangyan Island. As a result, the moves China took have dealt a heavy blow to the Philippine economy.
