Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson, Wang Wenbin, made the remarks in response to a query about a statement issued by the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs on Monday, which protested against Chinese Coast Guard vessels’ patrols in waters off the Huangyan Island.
Meanwhile, Philippines Foreign Secretary, Teodoro Locsin, also made insulting remarks on his personal social media account.
He said that facts have proven time and time again that megaphone diplomacy can only undermine mutual trust rather than change reality.
“We hope that certain individuals from the Philippines will mind basic manners and act in ways that suit their status,’’ Wang said.
Wang added that it is also an important consensus reached by China and the Philippines on many occasions.
“China has always been and will remain committed to properly handling of differences and advancing cooperation with the Philippines through friendly consultation.
