MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday told the Philippine Coast Guard to investigate the collision between Chinese and Philippine vessels in Ayungin Shoal.

According to the Presidential Communications Office (PCO), Marcos led a Command Conference to address the new wave of Chinese aggression in the West Philippine Sea.

“He instructed the Philippine Coast Guard to conduct an investigation, as mandated by international maritime laws, into the events that transpired during the RORE mission to Ayungin Shoal by vessels of the China Coast Guard,” said the PCO in a Facebook post.

The PCO said that the highest level of government is taking the incident very seriously.
