"Patayin niyo na lahat para matapos na ang problema ko at ng Pilipino," he added
It might be recalled that Pres. Duterte had a meeting with his counterparts from Indonesia and Malaysia, president Joko Widodo and prime minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad respectively they discussed about forming a task group to hunt pirates lurking the waters bordering their countries.
"I said it's high time that we form a task force, not to intrude into waters of other countries, but just to patrol your waters incessantly and accurately," the President said.


Malaysia, Indonesia,  and the Philippines have been conducting naval patrols in the Sulu Sea since 2017 to curb cross-border kidnapping-for-ransom activities in the area.
