President Duterte won’t give China ‘an inch” of PH territory – Malacanang


President Rodrigo Roa Duterte as Commander in Chief made it clear for everybody especially to those who are his political enemies – that he will not surrender any piece of Philippine territory to any foreign state.

This was clarified by Duterte when he gave his comment regarding claims by China that the Philippines has been doing “illegal provocations” in the West Philippine Sea (WPS).

“Consistent naman po ang ating Presidente, he will not give even an inch of our national territory or sovereign rights to any other state,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.

A few days back, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian accused the Philippines of violating China’s sovereignty by sending its patrol aircraft to the Spratly Islands.

Last week, the Department of Foreign Affairs(DFA) filed a diplomatic protest to China over the Chinese Coast Guard’s confiscation of equipment(payaw) used by Filipino fishermen in the Scarborough Shoal (locally known as Bajo de Masinloc) last May.

The Presidential Spokesperson made a clarification that the ongoing maritime territorial disputes won’t affect the country’s expanding economic ties with China.

“Hindi po magiging dahilan itong unresolved issue sa ating teritoryo bilang hadlang para isulong sa ating diplomatic bilateral relations with China ‘yung mga bagay na pupwede namang isulong, gaya po ng kalakal at investments,” he added.
