DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said if he be chosen and elected president of the country, he will negotiate and hold bilateral talks with China to immediately resolve the territorial dispute in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).

At the proclamation rally of the Partido ng Demokratikong Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) on Monday at Century Park Hotel, in which Duterte was officially proclaimed as the standard-bearer of PDP-Laban on Monday with Senator Alan Peter Cayetano as his running mate. Duterte said in his speech that the nation should avoid showing any drama with regard to resolving the territorial issue with China.

Duterte said, ‘I will talk to them. Huwag na tayong mag-drama.”

He even remember and recalled a discussion between him and a Chinese official telling them that the emerging world superpower should leave the Filipino fishermen alone because fishing in the disputed waters is their source of livelihood.

Duterte courageously said If you continue “f*c*k*ng” with us, you will see me standing there in the Spratly and you have to shoot or execute me.”

He said, My grandfather was Chinese. Once I went to China alone. I asked them to stop their expansion and then there will be no problems.

But if you keep advancing, people will be fearful. What do you want? Shared exploration? That’s okay with me.

But if you keep on threatening the country, this will be my deal with China: You are nearing our shores. That being the case I will slice Palawan in half—lengthwise.

I will tell the Americans they can come here, build another Subic or Clark airbase. Pay only the Filipino $1,000. They can create what they want, place all their missiles here, then let’s fight.

Whatever else can I do? I can also invite Australia whose been expressing some interest in Palawan. They can all have the coastal areas, they can build anything they like. What assures my country’s safety is my only interest here.

The Philippine government made a concrete decision to file a case against China in the hopes of resolving the territorial row at the United Nations arbitral court.

But China has avoided participating in the arbitration proceedings. Instead, China is pushing to have a one on one talks and direct consultation or bilateral talks, which the Philippines refused because of the Beijing unilateral approach and China’s indisputable claims over the entire 90% of the sea.-Jason E.



  1. Good. Share our natural resources. Slice Palaway lengthwise like the way you slice someone on bed. Pure rhetoric. Everything this Mayor speaks, there’s always something about guns.

  2. Another chinese puppet!!!. Who’s funding your presidency china???, its a good thing you politicians always talk and talk at least we the Filipino people already know who were going to vote, not YOU!!!.

    • You must be special kind of stupid aren’t you? You prolly didn’t even read the whole article. Can you kindly give me your address, so I can ship you a box of condom, so you don’t accidentally spread your idiotic genes anywhere.

    • kaya nga hayaan na lang ba dapat sa china ang teritoryo natin?sinasakop na nga tayo, kawawa ka nga talaga kapag ganyan mentality mo

  3. I support Duterte, Lintek kasing Ramos na nyan sa panahon nya nagsimula ang China magtayo ng structure sa Spratly pero hinayaan nya puro diplomasya o ayan malaki na, ano ngayon ang gagawin natin? Di rin nya nagawang i modernized ang AFP samantalang time rin nya yun naipasa AFP modernization, Kung magkagulo talaga namang kawawa tayo eh nasa bakod natin yan natural apektado tayo.
