The South China Sea arbitration unilaterally initiated by the Philippines has drawn worldwide attention. Over 130 foreign political parties and organizations have expressed their support of China's position. They have urged parties directly involved to solve the disputes through negotiations and consultations.

"We think it is not helpful to internationalize the disputes. Related parties should resolve the issue peacefully through bilateral negotiations. We agree with China's long-standing position," Professor Jose Jara with Mayor University in Chile said.

"We think China is on the right path. We hope that the countries involved can move forward on the issue accordingly," Lourdes Palacios, committee member of Salvador Farabundo Marti National Liveration Front, said.

"I think disputing parties should tackle the problem through direct talks. I think bilateral negotiations is the best way to guarantee a long-term solution. Unilateral actions by the Philippines are not helpful at all," Jan Kohout, Foreign Affairs consultant to Czech President, said.

"The international community should encourage China and the Philippines to settle their disputes through discussions. A solution provided by a third party that is not recognized by both sides won't work," Victor Burikukiye, vice president of Burundi National Council for The Defense of Democracy, said.
