Duterte downplaying PH Arbitral victory on West PH Sea a 'very serious’ matter, shows bias towards China - VP Robredo


The Vice President has also launched her attacks to the President after retired Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonio Carpio and former Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Albert del Rosario, Jr.

Vice President Leni Robredo has made known her deep concern over President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s statement describing the country’s arbitral win from the Permanent Court of Arbitration as regards the West Philippine Sea (WPS) as “a mere scrap of paper” he can throw away.

VPRobredo said Duterte’s remark on the 2016 landmark victory is a “very serious” matter, as she stressed that the arbitral award is a huge boost in asserting the Philippines’ territorial claims in the disputed waters.

“Seryoso ‘yun kasi kasarinlan natin tsaka sovereignty ‘yung pinag-uusapan dito. Hindi mo pwedeng i-take lightly ‘yung naging desisyon kasi kaya tayo umabot sa ganung punto dahil sa pananakop sa mga pag-aari natin. Napakalaking win ‘yun sa atin, eh,” the vice president said in her weekly radio show.

Para sa akin...may pagkiling na talaga, may pagkiling na sa China,” Robredo said.

Robredo said a debate between Duterte and Carpio would have been beneficial to the nation, especially to those not familiar with the issue on the contested waters.

“Kasi ang katotohanan talaga, marami sa mga kababayan natin ang ‘di klaro ang issue sa West Philippine Sea. So kung magkaroon ng discussion, hindi naman nga kailangan na away ito eh, pero kung magkaroon ng public na latagan ng ano talaga, tingin ko magiging very educational ito sa publiko,” Robredo said. “Sayang kasi nag-back out si Presidente."
