Locsin's tweet was in reaction to the statement of Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo that it is okay to seek United States help in monitoring movements within the Philippines' exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. stressed it is important to bring justice to the Chinese worker who was allegedly killed in Metro Manila amid speculations that the culprit is also a Chinese national.

Locsin on Tuesday urged government authorities to make sure that those behind the death of a 27-year-old Chinese national in Las Piñas City last Friday is brought to justice, saying failure to do so will have dire consequences for Filipinos living and working in China. We go down this road of letting Chinese nationals be hurt, our people in China will pay.

"The Chinese Embassy highly appreciate the Palace's call to put a stop to these illegal acts, as well as the commitment to protecting the safety of Chinese citizens in the Philippines", the Chinese Embassy said.

Two Chinese survey ships have been recently spotted operating within the Philippines' EEZ.

The embassy said offshore gaming operations in the Philippines have led to crimes and social problems in China.

The Chinese embassy claimed that their citizens in the Philippines are being kidnapped, tortured and physically abused by local employers, who also confiscated their passports. Via its nine-dash line on maps, China says it has historic jurisdiction to nearly the entire sea, although the 2016 arbitral ruling declared that invalid under global law.

"No one is exempted from the strict enforcement of our laws of the land", he said.

The protest comes ahead of President Rodrigo Duterte's planned visit to Beijing this month, during which he has promised to raise Manila's South China Sea global arbitration victory over Beijing with leader Xi Jinping, having avoided confronting the thorny issue for three years.
