We have been aware of the "Nine Dash Line".
NOW to that add the "10-Dash Line".
As duly noted and reported by the Filipino media.
"China's new '10-dash line map' eats into Philippine territory"
Further claims and encroachment by the Chinese into what is deemed as Filipino Economic Exclusion Zone [EEZ].
Apparently included within the Chinese Ten-Dash line claim of sovereignty Scarborough Shoals.
All areas within the dashed line area as claimed by China.
"The Philippines has protested China's recent publication of a new "10-dash line" map that places sprawling offshore territories it claims within Beijing's "national boundaries," officials said Friday."
. . .
"The new Chinese map, which was first published last January by China's state mapping authority Sinomap Press, features 10 dash lines instead of nine dash lines to mark a huge swath of the South China Sea in a tongue-shaped encirclement as Chinese territory."
. . . .
"China's nine-dash line claim in the South China Sea, it added, "encroaches on the sovereign rights and jurisdiction of the Philippines" and in Bajo de Masinloc or Scarborough Shoal, site of a standoff last year between Chinese and Philippine ships."
The beat goes on.
The UNITED STATES TOO HAVING A BINDING AND LEGALLY OBLIGATING BI-LATERAL DEFENSE TREATY WITH THE PHILIPPINES.
