Philippines needs modern arms to fight Isis, Duterte tells Putin


25 May, 2017

President Duterte said his administration will give the Philippines-Russia relations the importance commensurate to its full potential.

The priest, Father Chito, and the others had no role in the conflict, Villegas said. I am just telling interpretation: "there was no bullying or pushing around, it was not a threat", Cayetano added.

United States military ties have been loosened even though China is expanding its presence into Philippine-claimed waters in the South China Sea.

An global tribunal ruled in July past year that China's claims to most of the sea were without legal basis, in a case filed by the Philippines under Duterte's predecessor, Benigno Aquino 3rd. Duterte has sought to put the ruling aside in his dealings with China, which has ignored the ruling.

But Duterte, a self-described socialist, has been determined to reduce the Philippines' reliance on the United States and build much closer ties with China and Russian Federation.

Duterte is also expected to grace several business meetings to encourage Russian businessmen to invest in the Philippines. He said he replied, "But I have the arbitral (award)". "Why? Because we hate the sin but we love the sinner". Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte warned Wednesday that he'll be harsh in enforcing martial law in his country's south as he abruptly left Moscow to deal with a crisis at home sparked by a Muslim extremist siege on a city, where militants burned buildings overnight and are feared to have taken hostages.

Erdogan reelected as head of Turkey's ruling party
There was also a deterioration in ties with European Union countries in the build-up to the referendum. He is a leader who has a vision for everyone in Turkey", Cengiz Selcuk, 78, said.

"Well, if you force this, we'll be forced to tell you the truth".

Duterte said last week that Chinese President Xi Jinping had threatened to go to war with the Philippines over the territorial row. She quoted another official as saying Marawi was like "a ghost town". He said the reply was: "Well, we are friends".

Officials from both countries agreed to discuss "mutually acceptable approaches" to South China Sea issues during a bilateral consultation in the Chinese city of Guiyang last Friday, according to a joint statement released by the Philippines' Department of Foreign Affairs. "There was mutual respect, there was mutual trust", Cayetano told reporters.

"There was no language or even tone that would lead any of the two presidents to believe that there was disrespect for them or their countries", he said.

It also said the Philippines had a sovereign right to access offshore oil and gas fields in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), including the Reed Bank.

"I said when we were face-to-face, 'That is ours and we intend to drill oil there.' No beating around the bush", Duterte said. Whenever we talk about a buildup it would be useless. "The context is how do we stabilise the region and how do we prevent conflict".
