(MOFA) has declared that no code of conduct in the South China Sea will be binding on Taiwan if it is cast out of the negotiations and dialogues aimed at creating a set of rules to avoid conflict among rival claimants in the waters.

The declaration was made Friday in response to what the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman Charles Jose had told CNA, that all member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) adhere to the “one China” policy.

As a result, regarding Taiwan’s claims in the South China Sea, the ASEAN sees China as the representative in negotiations concerning the claims, Jose said.
