Senator Enrile: Time to ready our weapons http://j.mp/KkOFCP
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines must now prepare to defend its territory as China continues to assert its claim over the Scarborough Shoal, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile said on Wednesday.
Enrile was asked for his reaction to reports that China’s vessels remain in the area and are barring Filipino fishermen from entering.
"We better buy war equipment. We better buy our weapons, our means of defense," he told reporters.
Enrile said recent events show that "China is grabbing the place from us."
