The Philippines is considering four options to peacefully settle its territorial dispute with Malaysia regarding its Sabah claim, President Benigno Aquino III said in an interview aired over state-run Radyo ng Bayan on Monday.
Of these four options, the "most realistic" is to seek an increase in the rent paid by the Malaysian government to the Sulu Sultanate, Aquino said.
He also gave an assurance that the inter-agency study on the Sabah claim will not end with the death of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III who passed away on Sunday.
Aquino said the "most realistic" option is to seek an increase in the rent paid by the Malaysian government to the Sulu sultanate.
Earlier, Aquino formed a team composed of the Department of Justice, Department of Foreign Affairs, and the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office to study the status of the country's Sabah claim.
The inter-agency team has also already started compiling the available data on the Philippine claim.
Bisa seru nih, setelah meniru taktik Pasukan Jaguh di Zambo, skrg malah mau dipalakin sewanya dinaikin. Kalo gak mau bayar Lahat Datu ke-2 kah?
saya kok liatnya filipina mulai berani ma malaysia mungkin gara2 " nebeng " dari tekanan amerika agar malaysia fokus urusin LCS aja jadi masalah Sulu ini serahin ke Manila yang emang dari dulunya anak emas amerika...bukannya abis kunjungan menhan amerika langsung malaysia mau bangun pangkalan militer d james shoal kan?....jadi konsentrasi pertahanannya dah ga k timur lagi, tapi ke utara....
