Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago expressed her beliefs that China just bluffs their warning to block illegal ship pass through their territorial claims in the South China Sea since January 1, 2013.
“Ano sila sinusuwerte? Ito namang China na ito talagang nagpo-provoke lang iyan ng public attention. Alam naman niyang hindi niya magagawa iyan at pipigilan talaga iyan ng Amerika”, said Santiago.
According to the former chairman of the Senate committee on foreign relations, China also knows that the blocking of their Ships pass through the South China Sea cannot be happen but still tried to levitate to know the reaction of America as well as other countries Europe and Asia.
“China is testing the waters,” Santiago said in a radio interview.
