Why Filipinos ignore the 118 degrees east longitudinal line ?

Why do they try hard to ignore and deny the existence of this line?
Is this line not important since it was respected by Spain, USA, and Britain and countries holding UN membership.
Even the Philippines parliament has enacted many consitutional laws during the 1960's that re-iterated this line as the cuntry's border.
Are they trying to maintain the flexibility for land claims since it is involved in many conflicts with neighbouring countries - with Vietnam, Taiwan, China, Malaysia over the Spratlys, and Sabath with Malaysia.
