Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to buy only brand-new military equipment.
Duterte on Friday said he is interested only in brand new, state-of-the-art weaponry, according to Business Insider.
“I will no longer accept second-hand military equipment,” Duterte told soldiers at an army base on the southern island of Mindanao. “I do not want those given by the Americans. During my time, I will not have second-hand ships. It has to be brand new.”
