× Palace: Permission to China means we own West PH Sea

MANILA, Philippines --- Giving China "permission" for its presence in the West Philippine Sea shows the Philippines to be the "owner" of that area, Malacaang said on Sunday.

"That very act alone shows you are the owner, since you are giving permission. If you are not the owner how can you
give permission?" presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in an interview with Radyo Inquirer.
