Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou proposes a new peace plan for South China Sea which was disputed by several nations in the region, The China Post reports. Meanwhile, a Filipino security expert warns that China may be successful in plundering Philippines' resources, says Philippine Daily Inquirer. A senior Chinese diplomat said construction works carried out on Spratly Islands "befits China's international responsibilities", writes China Daily. North Korea is building several military bunkers on a border island in the skirmish-prone West Sea that may pose a “grave threat” to South Korea,according to The Korea Herald. The campsites erected by human traffickers near the Thai-Malaysian border are said to have been found early this year, contrary to claims that they were discovered on May 11, The Star reports.
