The Philippines welcomes the “milestone decision” and experts will carefully study the award, Foreign Secretary Perfecto Yasay said.
“In the meantime, we call on both concerned to exercise restraint and sobriety,” he said in a statement.
“The Philippines strongly affirms its respect for this milestone decision as an important contribution to ongoing efforts in addressing disputes in the South China Sea."
