The Philippines Coast Guard has formed ‘The Angels of the Sea’-a team of 81 female armed coast guard members to tackle the Chinese threat in one most dangerous waterways-South China Sea. Chinese ships will return if they get a warning in female members of the coast guard, the authorities believe.
Speaking with The Philippines Star, a coast guard officer said that this move will reduce the tension between China and the Philippines.”We want our Angels of the Sea to become the voice of peaceful and rules-based order at sea, especially in our country’s sensitive maritime frontiers,” he said.
