As usual, President Rodrigo Duterte opts to just talk it out with his Chinese ‘friends’ as he is set to discuss the recent West Philippine Sea ‘incursion’ to Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian.

According to Malacanang, it is following the alleged 220 vessels ‘militia’ seen at Juan Felipe Reef as reported by National Task Force for the West Philippine Sea (NTF-WPS) and Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

“Uulitin ko lang po ang sinabi kahapon ni Presidente, kakausapin niya ang Chinese ambassador tungkol sa isyung ito,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque reiterated.

“Ang sabi naman niya, wala namang hindi napaguusapan sa panig ng mga magkakaibigan,” added Roque

Although China already denied the Filipinos’ clamor of enforcement, the Philippines has sent yet another diplomatic protest against such.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana prompted this to address the grave concern and hopefully recall the vessels within the vicinity.
