Alcantara also said that the Chinese were not telling the truth when it claimed Monday through reports that their vessels Yuzheng 310 and maritime surveillance ship 84 have left the shoal.
“We are not doubting their claims. We are telling them they are not telling the truth,” he said.
Meanwhile, two small Chinese fishing boats were sighted inside the shoal, and another three outside. Fisheries Law Enforcement Command (Yuzheng) vessel 310, a Chinese fishing gunboat, was located eight nautical miles southeast of BRP Pampanga, and the Chinese maritime surveillance ship (CMS) 71 was within 12 nautical miles also southeast of the BRP Pampanga, said Alcantara.
