LIVESTREAM: Manila Defense and Security Symposium
MANILA, Philippines – Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio is set to discuss the Philippines' maritime case against China during the Manila Defense and Security Symposium on Friday, June 17.
The symposium, organized by private nonprofit organization Trident Defense, will be held at the Forum, Solaire Resort, in Parañaque City starting 2 pm.
Participants from the private sector, government, diplomatic community, military, and the academe are expected to join the event.
Carpio will deliver a lecture and share developments on the Philippines' legal challenge over disputed territories in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).
In 2013, the Philippines filed a historic case against China, challenging before an international tribunal Beijing's so-called 9-dash line that virtually claimed the entire South China Sea.
The Philippines, meanwhile, is asserting that the disputed waters fall within its 200-nautical mile exclusive economic zone.
The Philippines is expecting the tribunal to issue its ruling this month.
