Philippines weighs legal options against China over coral reef 'destruction'

The Philippines is exploring legal options against China accusing it of destruction of coral reefs within its exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the South China Sea, an allegation rejected by Beijing as an attempt to "create political drama". The Philippines foreign ministry late on Thursday said it was awaiting assessments from various agencies of the extent of environmental damage in Iroquois Reef in the Spratly islands and would be guided by Solicitor General Menardo Guevarra. https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/philippines-weighing-legal-options-against-china-over-coral-reef-destruction-2023-09-22/

          Coral reefs play a key role in climate adaptation, and governments should commit to their protection and restoration.
