China urges Philippines to drop UN arbitration case

MANILA--The new Chinese Ambassador to the Manila urged the Philippines to set aside its United Nations arbitration case over the South China Sea dispute in order to bring back the good relations of both countries.

“The current difficulties in the bilateral relations, caused by some problems including the arbitration case on the South China Sea issue, are not what the Chinese side wishes to see, and are not in the common interests of both China and the Philippines,” Chinese Ambassador Zhao Jianhua said in a statement after he presented his credentials to President Benigno Aquino III Tuesday.

“It is China's hope that the Philippine side could, in the spirit of seeking common grounds while shelving differences, work with the Chinese side to properly handle relevant disputes, and to overcome obstacles and bring the bilateral ties back to the normal track of development,” he said.
