MANILA, Philippines — While China sent its maritime militia in response to the Philippines' upgrade of its facilities on Pag-asa Island, Vietnam has also been expanding its facilities on its outposts in the Spratly chain in the South China Sea.

Washington-based think tank Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative reported that Hanoi has extended its runway on Spratly Island, its largest outpost and administrative center in the area.
