It is wiser to stop talking to China over Scarborough Shoal and keep the peace: A reaction

China is definitely making a mockery to insist that an agreement has already been reached over Panatag Shoal when the talks were at a stalemate. Roy C. Mabasa, et.al quoted Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario and reported through Manila Bulletin Today that, "I said... there was no agreement that's why we are on a stalemate," Del Rosario pointed out. "They are harping that we don't honor an agreement... I felt I should clarify that with the Chinese government, it seems that report was not accurate, not factual."

Likewise on China’s side of the matter, Mabasa, et.al said, “In a statement issued Thursday night, Zhang maintained that since the beginning of the Huangyan Island (Chinese name for Scarborough Shoal) incident, Ambassador Ma and the Chinese embassy have been carrying out their duties "faithfully and effectively." "They have worked tirelessly for the proper settlement of the pending issue between the two countries and the sound and stable development of bilateral relations," said Zhang.

In view of this scenario, it is very clear that China does not only carryout on the high seas its bullying against the Philippines but also, on the negotiating table. China takes advantage of the weaknesses of the Philippine to advance its injustice and bullying.

Indeed, China presses its tremendous weight and mass on the Philippines by claiming a “done deal out of no deal”. It is useless to talk to a party that is unreasonable so, it is better for the Philippines to stop talking to China concerning the disputed shoal.

Continue the peace without talking rather than keep talking to destroy the peace.
