Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Commented on British Prime Minister David Cameron's Remarks about the South China Sea Arbitration Case
2016/05/26

Q: British Prime Minister David Cameron said yesterday that China should respect the ruling of the arbitration tribunal in the Hague. Do you have any response?

A: China's position on the South China Sea arbitration case has been repeatedly stated. This tribunal should not have existed from the outset. The crux of the South China Sea dispute between China and the Philippines is territorial and maritime delimitation issue, which is not applicable to the compulsory dispute settlement procedure of UNCLOS. China's position is clear that for any result coming from such an unlawful, null and void tribunal, China will by no means accept or acknowledge it.
