Which nation is to resume oil & gas exploration in disputed South China Sea?

[A]. UAE
[B]. Philippines
[C]. Iraq
[D]. Iran

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

The Philippines will resume oil and gas exploration in the South China Sea, in a move that will test how far the country and Beijing are willing to compromise over rival maritime claims and the US's resolve to back Manila. "We trust China will respect our sovereign decision," Alfonso Cusi, energy secretary, said on Friday about the move to end a six-year moratorium on resource exploration in the disputed waters.
