Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Philippines renaming South China Sea as West Philippine Sea can never change the fact that China has indisputable sovereignty over Nansha Islands, including the Huangyan Island, and their surrounding territorial waters in the South China Sea.

It’s reported that Philippine president Aquino announced Wednesday an administrative order to formally name the South China Sea as the "West Philippine Sea".

Asked to comment on the report, Hong said the name of South China Sea is recognized globally and also well accepted by the international community, and the United Nations.
