Renaming by Philippines Raise Tensions in South China Sea

Today the Chinese regime scoffed at the Philippines' attempt to rename the South China Sea. In a symbolic move, Philippine president Benigno Aquino signed documents making the West Philippine Sea its official name. The Philippines plans to take it before the UN and have the West Philippine Sea recognized by the international community. Taiwan, officially called the Republic of China, also warned against the unilateral move, saying it was provocative and unconstructive. Philippine spokesman Edwin Lacierda says that the renaming was not a threat to other countries because it falls within the Philippines Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Both China and Taiwan have dismissed the claims, saying the area will remain the South China sea. They say changing the name will not affect the territorial claims of certain disputed islands in the sea. The disputed islands are strategically located, and are thought to have large reserves of oil under them. The Philippines and China have been vying for ownership of the islands, as well as other adjacent neighbors.
