Taiwan criticizes Manila for renaming disputed sea

TAIPEI -- Taiwan on Thursday criticized the Philippines for naming South China Sea waters off its west coast the “West Philippine Sea” despite rival sovereignty claims.

Taiwan “does not recognize this unilateral move that will provoke disputes and sternly reaffirms its territorial claim” to the South China Sea, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

“We urge neighboring countries to exercise self-restraint and avoid any unilateral moves that will affect peace and stability in the region, instead replacing confrontation with dialogue,” it said.
