Manila stores selling chinese globes depicting china's claim over all of south china sea (1)

  1. 1. Chinese-made globes show 9-dash line Philippine schools unwittingly buy them for classroom use - raissarobles.com
  2. 2. A globe bought in Manila on Feb. 11, 2013 clearly showed the 9-dash line
  3. 3. A globe bought in Manila three years ago was more subtle in its markings It names the four groupings of the atolls, reefs and islands claimed by Beijing in the South China Sea - the Nansha Qundao (or southern sand which overlaps with Philippine claims), the Xisha Qundao (or west sand that overlaps with Vietnam's claims), the Dongsha Qundao and the Zhongsa Qundao (or central sand, where Beijing has inserted Huangyan island or Scarborough Shoal, which Manila calls Bajo de Masinloc. - photo sent to raissarobles.com by David Valencia
  4. 4. A globe made in the US from the same Manila bookstore showed no markings in the South China Sea

  6. 6. David Valencia and his Facebook friends contacted raissarobles.com because they were disturbed by the implications. David said: "These globes find their way to schools, offices and homes and are instruments of teaching to our young generation. Our country is contesting the nine-dash line with China and at the United Nations, yet we have these in our schools, offices and home."
  7. 7. David's action is highly interesting. You see, he lives and works all the way in Lagos, Nigeria.
  8. 8. In reaction to David's request, Philippine foreign affairs spokesman Raul Hernandez said: "The DFA has been able to validate that educational globes which reflect China's nine- dash line encompassing the South China Sea are being retailed locally by establishments that are totally unaware about the maritime disputes between the Philippines and China."
  9. 9. DFA's Hernandez added: "The management of these establishments are proactively prepared to discuss with the DFA remedies to be able to address the misinformation contained in the educational globes. The Philippines asserts that China's nine-dash line claim is an excessive claim in violation of international law."
