Topic: China 'seriously concerned' by Philippine's building in South China Sea

China's Foreign Ministry expressed serious concern on Friday after the Philippines said it would resume repair and reconstruction works on disputed islands in the South China Sea, saying Manila was infringing on Chinese sovereignty. The Philippines had halted activities last year over concerns about the effect on an international arbitration complaint filed against China. Manila called on all countries last October to stop construction work on small islands and reefs in the South China Sea, most of which is claimed by China. China itself is undertaking massive reclamation works in the area, while Taiwan, Malaysia and Vietnam have also been improving their facilities.
