Philippines not safe for PRC nationals warns China

In Casinos, China on 12/05/2012 at 6:26 am

China told its citizens on Thurday  they were not safe in the Philippines and its state media warned of war, as a month-long row over rival claims in the South China Sea continued.

Chinese travel agencies announced they had suspended tours to the Philippines, under government orders, and the embassy in Manila advised its nationals already in the country to stay indoors ahead of protests on Friday. Five hundred protested outside the Chinese embassy, in the event.

And the Philippines wants Chinese gamblers to visit Manila, and the Chinese to invest in the country. What a joke!  Want Chinese money but intent on upsetting China. Filipinos are not realists.

  1. Sounds like you are okay if the Chinese claims Sentosa as their own.

    • It never ever claimed Sentosa. And China’s claim for the area dates since before both countries established relations.

      • The Chinese claims many countries and territory, including Tibet, Taiwan, and some Japanese territory. Does it make their claim any more valid if they are trading partners? NO.

  2. So now China is powerful. If China one day will to say that Pulau Bukom belongs to them and if Singapore disagree, China will cut all trade ties with us.

    So if you are the Singapore government, you will just give away the island away?

    We have been complaining about PRC invading this country and now we just kowtow to them when they just threaten us?

    • It never ever claimed Bukom. And China’s claim for the area dates since before both countries established relations.

  3. I don’t see your pt why filipinos are not “realists”.

    Well, what the people want and what the govt wants are sometimes quite diferent. So the govt wants more chinese investments, more chinese tourists, etc. But the people want their pride.

    It’s the same for Singapore too, right? The govt wants more GDP, cheaperer, fasterer and betterer, the people want higher wages. The govt wants more foreign wokers, the people want less. Etc.

    Absolutely common state of affairs.
