THE SOUTH CHINA SEA: Philippines will buy Russian weapons after claiming “farewell” American?
Tensions between Manila and Washington are increasing. In a series of speeches this week, Philippine President Duterte had declared his willingness to “break up the United States” and adjust the foreign policy of world powers because the US “has failed us.”
Mr. Duterte also warned that if the United States refused to sell weapons to the Philippines, Manila can easily be turned to Russia and China.
“If they do not want to sell weapons, we will go to Russia.” “I was sent to Russia and Russian generals say” do not worry, we have all what you need. We will sell them to you … And with China, they said, “Come and signed and everything will be transferred,” Mr. Duterte claims.
The latest comments came after he Duterte announced last month that Manila may try to “swing pivot” to China and Russia to counterbalance the United States and the larger is the influence of the West. Then he planned Duterte visited both Moscow and Beijing to seek to promote economic relations with both powers, including investment from Russia and China, especially in the field of aviation and telecommunication.
