China: Philippines vessel 'deliberately' collided with our ship

Chinese Coast Guard blasted on Sunday the Philippines' latest claims about ship assaults, underlining that the latter's vessel "deliberately" collided with a coast guard ship.

The coast guard remarked in a statement that a Philippines ship ignored "repeated warnings" and "swerved in an unprofessional and dangerous manner," deliberately hitting one of the Chinese ships. "The responsibility lies entirely with the Philippines," Chinese authorities underlined.

"On December 10, two Philippine Coast Guard ships, one official vessel and one supply ship illegally intruded into the waters adjacent to Ren'ai Reef in China's Nansha Islands without the approval of the Chinese government. The Chinese Coast Guard took control measures against Philippine vessels in accordance with the law," it was written in the statement.
