(Washington Post/Associated Press) Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte urged the end of public outcry and tensions after a Chinese vessel hit and sank a Filipino fishing boat in the South China Sea on June 9, calling the incident an accident. Other government officials and opposition politicians, however, have criticized China for the incident and have demanded greater action from the Filipino government. China has denied that the collision was on purpose. <Accessed 2019-06-17>
