The Philippine military's Western Mindanao Command (Wesmincom) expresses concern over the entry of Chinese vessels in Philippine waters. 

Wesmincom Chief Cirilito Sobejana says these Chinese warships have been entering Philippine territory with their automatic identification systems turned off. 

While it's not against the law, Sobejana says, this puts both sides at a disadvantage since activating the system is a part of security protocol. 

Sobejana adds, a new law designating sea lanes in Philippine waters can actually benefit the country both economically, and in terms of security.
