Defense Chief: Chinese Vessels Finally Left Scarborough Shoal



The departure of the Chinese coastguard comes after President Rodrigo Duterte's prominent visit to Beijing and takes after his rehashed demands for China to end its  blockade of the shoal, a tranquil lagoon rich in fish stocks.

“Since three days ago there are no longer Chinese ships, coastguard or navy in the Scarborough area”. Secretary Lorenzana told reporters. “If the Chinese ships have left then it means our fishermen can resume fishing in the area.”
