MALACAÑANG welcomed on Sunday the statement of the Communist Party of the Philippines-National People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) supporting the country’s claim over the disputed cluster of islands in the West Philippine Sea.

“Lahat po ng pagpapahayag ng suporta na nanggagaling dito sa ating bansa at sa labas ng bansa ay malugod pong tinatanggap. At umaasa po tayo na lahat ng sector ng ating lipunan at lahat ng ating mga kababayan ay nakikiisa sa posisyon ng ating bansa hinggil dito,” said Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.

In a statement, CPP founding chairman Jose Maria Sison said “by manifestations though writing and mass actions, the patriotic and progressive forces have stood for Philippine sovereignty and territorial integrity over the islands and islets in question in the sea west of the Philippines on the basis of United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and other international instrument.”
