Saudi-watching, China-watching

By

The numbers are almost incredible: An estimated 1.5 million Filipinos work in Saudi Arabia, 20,000 of them undocumented or irregular (the preferred terms to “illegal”). That’s equivalent to the total population of the city of Manila.

Misguided nationalism

The recommended filing of homicide charges against the Coast Guard personnel involved in the fatal shooting of a Taiwanese fisherman in May may be unpopular with some Filipinos who insist that we must defend our defenders at all cost—an example of misguided nationalism that ignores our national interest in using international law to oppose Beijing’s territorial aggrandizement over our seas.

Taiwan ‘a country of sovereignty’

In response to the labeling of the Republic of China (ROC or Taiwan) as a “noncountry” in the Inquirer’s June 20 editorial, we would like to ask the Inquirer this question: If the ROC is a “noncountry,” why would Filipinos need to apply for visas to travel to Taiwan?

Mending nets

After the outburst of public anger, amplified by official outrage orchestrated by an unpopular government, Taiwan is sounding less bellicose these days. Perhaps President Ma Ying-Jeou and his advisers think they have forced the Philippines into a corner. They would be wrong.

Taiwan reacts to this column of May 27

By

We were forwarded a letter from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (Teco), which is Taiwan’s unofficial consulate in the Philippines, reacting to our column of May 27 (“Fish is at root of rows with Taiwan, China”) on the diplomatic row between the two countries. The row stemmed from the shooting death of a Taiwanese fisherman in a Taiwanese fishing vessel that, according to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), tried to ram its ship in the waters around the Batanes islands. In the letter, Teco denied that the Taiwanese are harassing overseas Filipino workers in their country.

Cooperative

In the last several days, the exchange of angry recriminations over the killing of a Taiwanese fisherman in Philippine waters has given way to a flurry of bureaucratic activity—and the sound of government officials on both sides of the dispute working at something necessary is welcome.
