    Philippines hits back at Beijing over South China Sea

    The Philippines on Saturday shot back at Beijing's criticism of its activities in the South China Sea, saying they were "in no way comparable to China's massive reclamation activities" in the waters. It also said accusations that Manila was being "hypocritical" would not distract people from Beijing's own actions which were raising regional tensions. "The Philippines' possible undertaking of necessary maintenance and repairs on its existing facilities in the West Philippine Sea... is in no way comparable to China's massive reclamation activities which not only violate international law... but also unnecessarily raise tensions," the statement said. "West Philippine Sea" is the term Manila uses for the South China Sea where Filipino troops and civilians occupy some islands.
