Trust the President in the WPS issue - Spox Panelo

Amidst the clamor of the few that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has committed an impeachable offense, he remains true to his sworn duty and that is protecting the interest of the Filipino.

Presidential spokesman Atty. Salvador Panelo urges the public to trust Duterte’s moves in the West Philippine Sea (WPS), claiming that all actions of the President are in line with the Constitution and are intended to protect the interest of Filipinos.

“All I can say is they should trust the President because all his actions are in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution, which state that the Filipino people should be protected and served,” Panelo told radio station dzMM. “(Duterte) is balancing the interest of the state (with the) potential dangerous consequence that may happen if we commit a mistake.”

Panelo reiterates that Duterte would not allow anyone to violate the country’s sovereignty.
“What is foremost in the mind of the President is that, hindi tayo papayag na ang ating kasarinlan o sovereignty ay yapakan (we won’t allow our freedom or sovereignty to be trampled upon),” Panelo said.

Duterte calls out the US and allies

The Chief Executive has called out the United States of America, United Kingdom, and France

 “This is my challenge, America, Britain, France: let us assemble in Palawan and proceed directly to Spratlys. Let us seize whatever we can seize,” Duterte said. “Kung maubos tayo lahat, sabi nila (If we all perish, they will say) Duterte is not protecting the interest of the Filipino people. G*****n s***. You want me to put the lives of 110 million Filipinos (at risk) by going into trouble? … It’s not the time to go to war… reality – that’s geopolitics.”
The President claims that even the United States is scares of stopping China and he is being put in the spot.  “Takot nga ang Amerika, ayaw nga mag-control, tapos ako pa ipusta nila? Gusto talaga nila mapasubo ako.”
