BEIJING: China's coast guard said on Tuesday it had taken control measures against Philippine vessels that illegally penetrated waters off the disputed Second Thomas Shoal in the South China Sea.

A coast guard statement said the incident occurred near the waters near Renai Reef, also known as Second Thomas Shoal, in the South China Sea, which has seen numerous runs by Chinese coast guard and Philippine vessels in the past few months.

The Philippine military said in a statement on Tuesday that the resupply operation for Philippine troops stationed on the second Thomas Shoal-landed warship is underway.

Feb. On the 23rd, the Chinese Coast Guard released a brief report on the latest incident between the countries, along with other past coast guard actions, including a link to the so-called „illegal invasion of Scarborough Shoal”.

In that incident, a Chinese Coast Guard vessel took the necessary steps to chase away the Philippine vessel in accordance with the law.

China claims sovereignty over much of the South China Sea, which is cut into the exclusive economic zones (EEZ) of Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. In 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration found that China's claims had no legal basis.
