Whitsun Reef UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • The Philippines said on Sunday more than 135 Chinese vessels were “swarming” a reef off its coast, describing the boats’ growing presence as “alarming”.

  • The Chinese boats were “dispersed and scattered” within the boomerang-shaped Whitsun Reef, which the Philippines calls Julian Felipe Reef, around 320 km west of Palawan Island, the coast guard said.

  • It's also known as Niu'e Jiao in Chinese and Julian Felipe Reef in the Philippines

  • It's the largest reef in the Union Banks, which are part of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.

  • The reef is a hot spot for territorial disputes. China, Vietnam, and the Philippines all claim ownership of it, and there have been several tense incidents between these countries over the years.

  • In 2021, for example, a large number of Chinese fishing vessels gathered around Whitsun Reef for several weeks.
