The Philippines has condemned Taiwan's military firing in the area of ​​one of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, the territorial affiliation of which they dispute along with China and Vietnam, according to the online edition of the Philstar newspaper.

The drills were scheduled for June 28-29.

These illegal actions increase tension and complicate the situation in the South China Sea, the newspaper quoted the Philippine Foreign Ministry as saying, RIA Novosti reported.

The conflict around the area of ​​the Spratly archipelago and the Paracel Islands, rich in both marine and mineral resources, including oil, has repeatedly provoked mutual confrontational actions, up to clashes, between the ships of the civil fleet and the navies of the countries claiming this territory.
