Rafael Alunan, one of the convenors of West Philippine Sea Coalition right after the Philippines won the court trials against China in the International Arbitral Tribunal.
When both parties understand all containing forms of the court decision, two nations can start a formal negotiations. Also, he stated that the government together with the Philippine Coast Guard should strengthen their patrolling in the West Philippine Sea. This is to ensure fishing in the disputed area is safe for Filipino fishermen.
