    China’s Foreign Ministry has summoned a Beijing-based Philippine diplomat at least three times since the latest standoff began.
    ‘The Huangyan Island issue is completely triggered by the Philippines’ vessels taking actions against civilian fishermen from China,’’ Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a briefing in Beijing yesterday. “China warns that Philippines should stop any actions that will escalate and complicate the issue.”
