According to Philippine GMA news, the Philippines will send back ships it pulled out of the Huangyan islands once the weather improves.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario says they’re waiting for better conditions, and President Benigno Aquino III believes that now it is not the proper time because of the very bad weather. Del Rosario says at least three Chinese vessels have been sighted by the Philippine Navy in its latest flight over the area.

He adds that barriers set up by China at the mouth of the islands to block the entry of any Philippine vessel that will attempt to enter the lagoon have remained. Aquino ordered the withdrawal of two Philippine vessels in June, easing a tense standoff between China and the Philippines that erupted in April 10.
