PNoy also appoints retired Supreme Court (SC) associate justice Conchita Carpio-Morales as the new ombudsman in his second State of the Nation Address.

MANILA, Philippines 
- President Aquino reiterated the Philippines’ foreign policy with regard to the country’s decades-old jurisdiction over Recto Bank in the West Philippine Sea, which is now being claimed by China.

While Aquino did not mention China, it was an obvious reference to the Chinese. “We do not wish to increase tensions with anyone, but we must let the world know that we are ready to protect what is ours.”
