The Philippine President, Ferdinand Marcos, today expressed concern over Beijing's actions in the South China Sea.

"We continue to monitor with great concern these dangerous maneuvers and actions against our sailors and coast guard," Marcos said.

Tensions in the South China Sea escalated this week.

The Philippine Coast Guard has accused the Chinese Coast Guard of causing collisions with two of its boats and injuring four of its personnel with water cannons near the disputed reef.

Yesterday, Manila invited the Chinese representative for a discussion regarding these incidents, and Beijing announced that the round guard "lawfully took measures".

Beijing claims almost the entire South China Sea, including waters and islands off the coasts of several neighboring countries, despite a 2016 international court ruling.
