The Philippine foreign ministry on Thursday accused China of intruding into its waters after an incident involving the two countries' military vessels at a disputed shoal in the South China Sea earlier this week, APA reports citing Reuters.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said the Chinese military's claim that a Philippine military ship "illegally entered" waters near the Scarborough Shoal "has no legal basis and only serves to raise tensions" in the disputed waterway.
