US destroyer joins Philippine war games

TESTING WATERS:The Philippine Navy said some of the joint exercises are to be held close to the Scarborough Shoal, which has effectively been occupied by China


The Chinese embassy in Manila released a statement yesterday cautioning the Philippines and the US not to exacerbate tensions in the area with their exercises.

“We hope relevant sides should take actions that are beneficial for maintaining peace and stability in the region, not the other way around,” the statement said, citing a Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman in Beijing.
