On 3 May, China stepped up their aggressiveness by using electronic warfare on the open seas. They jammed two Philippine military airplanes, causing a loss of communication and navigation equipment forcing them to “fly blind”. The aircraft were flying over contested waters in the South China Sea. The Philippines has encouraged China to work out a solution diplomatically, but China has continuously refused.
The Philippines and Japan have become closer over the past few months as both have faced the brunt of Chinese aggression with respect to territorial disputes between the two countries. Japan has praised the Philippines on its arbitration case and both countries commented on the Japan’s generosity for increasing the Philippine Coast Guard in this time of need.
If China maintains this pace, they’re not going to have any friends left, except North Korea… do you agree?
