Hostility between the two countries could escalate: America's ally might expel Chinese diplomats

Philippine National Security Advisor Eduardo Ano called for the expulsion of Chinese diplomats from the country. He made this harsh statement after the alleged leak of a phone conversation that caused tension between the two countries. The controversial recording showed a conversation between a Chinese diplomat and a Filipino admiral in which they discussed matters related to the South China Sea.

The island nation's military leader is said to be willing to make concessions to Beijing on the controversial issue.

Philippine Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro confirmed that the Chinese embassy is violating the country's laws by making such recordings.

Gilbert Teodoro categorically denied this and, according to him, they have not made any kind of agreement with the Eastern Great Powers on this subject, and do not plan to do so.

He said he believed this would convey that all countries are obligated to comply with the laws of the host country, even in the case of diplomatic immunity. He added, however, that

One would almost certainly expect harsh responses from Beijing.
