Armed Forces chief Gen. Gilbert Gapay on Tuesday described the situation in the South China Sea as “volatile and uncertain,” adding the military would install one of the radar systems from Japan at the closed Matinloc gas platform off Malampaya, Palawan near the West Philippine Sea.

“You see, we (decided that) the Matinloc platform (will) be assigned one of the radars coming from Japan to beef up our monitoring capability in the West Philippine Sea,” Gapay said in an online press conference with the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP).
