NATIONAL TERRITORY

.

The national territory comprises the Philippine archipelago,

with all the islands and waters embraced therein, and all other

territories over which the Philippines has sovereignty or

jurisdiction, consisting of its terrestrial, fluvial and aerial

domains, including its territorial sea, the seabed, the subsoil,

the insular shelves, and other submarine areas. The waters around,

between, and connecting the islands of the archipelago, regardless

of their breadth and dimensions, form part of the internal waters

of the Philippines.
