Locsin to China: "Don't even dream of pointing anything at my country. Wanna point then fire away. Let's see where that takes us"




The Philippines a week ago filed two diplomatic protest with China one of which is the incident where a Chinese Navy warship pointed their radar gun to the Philippines’ Navy BRP Conrado Yap.

Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said he will not condone the Chinese vessel's pointing of a radar gun at a Philippine Navy ship BRP Conrado Yap in the West Philippine Sea.


Locsin responded to the statement issued by Department of National Defense (DND) Delfin Lorenzana that the incident was merely a test and China wanted to see how the Philippine Navy would react.

"Well we passed the test; I slapped them back. Don't even dream of pointing anything at my country. Wanna point then fire away. Let's see where that takes us," Locsin said in a tweet.
"[N]ever ever point anything at my country unless you're looking for a fight. I know my soldiers," he added.
There is no response from the Chinese side regarding the diplomatic protest filed.


BRP Conrado Yap (PS-39) is the former South Korean corvette which are optimized for anti-submarine warfare missions.

The BRP Conrado Yap is armed with two 76mm Oto Melara automatic guns, two Oto Breda 40mm light cannons, two triple torpedo tubes and surveillance systems like radar and sonar.
