CHINA: "THE PHILIPPINES CANNOT CLAIM 13MILLION HECTARES BENHAM RISE AS ITS OWN TERRITORY"

"The Philippines cannot claim Benham Rise as its own territory despite it being part of the country's 200-nautical mile exclusive economic zone, Beijing said.
In 2012, the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf approved the submission of the Philippines in 2009 with respect to the limits of its continental shelf in the Benham Rise region. This enables the Philippines to carry out exploration and development of natural resources in the area.
"But it does not mean that the Philippines can take it as its own territory," the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a recent statement."
