“Extremely dangerous”: Chinese government newspaper tries to intimidate Philippines after accidents at sea | outside

China’s state-run People’s Daily newspaper on Monday accused the Philippines of repeatedly encroaching on Chinese territory in the South China Sea. The country is also said to be spreading false information and conspiring with foreign parties to cause trouble. The People’s Daily is the mouthpiece of the Chinese government.

According to the Chinese newspaper, the Philippines’ provocations are “extremely dangerous” and harm regional peace and stability. The Philippines has the support of the United States.

Tensions between China and the Philippines have escalated sharply in recent months. The two countries have exchanged accusations over a series of incidents in the South China Sea. This includes the accusation that China rammed a ship carrying the Philippine Army Chief of Staff earlier this month.

Tensions between the Chinese Coast Guard and Philippine ships are becoming more common. The Philippines had previously turned to an international arbitration court to challenge Chinese claims in the sea and succeeded in doing so in 2016. But Beijing does not care much about this statement.
