Statement of Senator Joel Villanueva on China's call for the Philippines to stop maritime exercises in disputed territories

The intention is to patrol our seas, which involves a few civilian ships, less than 10, and not an armed floating militia numbering hundreds of vessels. It is a peaceful exercise of our rights. It is to check on our fishing grounds. It is not an advance party of a reclamation expedition. Our ships are going there in peace.
