Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines Francis Jardaleza, who led the Philippine legal team in the arbitration case over disputed waters in the South China Sea, holds the copy of the arbitral tribunal ruling during a press conference in Manila on July 13, 2016. China warned its rivals July 13 against turning the South China Sea into a “cradle of war” and threatened an air defence zone there, after its claims to the strategically vital waters were declared invalid.
